an Encyclopedia of Positive Questions for anyone who wants to nurture respect, love, and care within their family.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 15, 2009
Innovation Partners International announces the publication of a new resource for using Appreciative Inquiry to strengthen family relationships. According to Ada Jo Mann, one of the book's four co-authors, "Positive Family Dynamics is a resource for parents and family members who want to bring out the best in their families." Ms. Mann described the book as "an Encyclopedia of Positive Questions for anyone who wants to nurture respect, love, and care within their family." The book, co-authored by Dawn Cooperrider Dole, Jen Hetzel Silbert, Ada Jo Mann, and Diana Whitney, contains 56 appreciative questions designed to increase learning, listening and positive dynamics within families - to stimulate conversations that are fun, informative, sometimes difficult, and perhaps life changing.
Dr. David Cooperrider of Case Western Reserve University's Weatherhead School of Management noted, "Appreciative Inquiry, while applied all over the world in business and organizations, may have just found its most important home with this invitation to flourishing families!"
"Great conversations start with great questions," says co-author Jen Hetzel Silbert. "Positive family dynamics is not about having all the right answers, but about having the right questions that bring out the best in the relationships that ultimately matter most: the ones we nurture at home."
This new release is available through Innovation Partners International and the Taos Institute.
