With the new age of cancel culture, let’s cancel the antiquated and
deficit-based approach to healing our veterans. Let’s not ask, “What’s
wrong with you?” Instead ask, “What’s strong in you?” “What are your
innate strengths?” “What is working well?” “What inspires you?
This book is intended to reinvigorate the warrior ethos and soar to new
heights, by heightening awareness around the strengths you possess. The
author, a United States Army Veteran, serving during Operation Desert
Shield and Storm, applied the Appreciative Inquiry approach to change
her trajectory from Hopeless to Hopeful.
While in her masters program at the prestigious Ivy League, University
of Pennsylvania, the author decided to take an evidence-based approach
to identify the impact of utilizing a strength-based coaching approach
for serving women veterans.

Leela by Sankarasubramanyan Ramamoorthy

The only thing that I’m certain about is my presence. I exist. But how do you see me? Do you see me as I am, or do I appear to you as you want me to? What about the World? Is that real or an appearance? And, what about God? Are God, the World and I, real? Or is it all just appearance and a play (Leela) in the field of the One presence? In this book I explore these questions based on my experiences, as I drive between Goa and Mumbai.

Organization and team development have increasingly become everyday components of a leader’s role. This book is written for informal and formal leaders who aspire to realize meaningful changes in their own context. Changes that will lead to a better performance and at the same time contribute to a vitalizing and energizing work environment.
Appreciative Inquiry enables you to work with committed employees and other stakeholders on larger and smaller issues in your organization and bring them forward. Every day, one conversation at a time.
This book specifically brings the theory of Appreciative Inquiry to the daily practice of leaders and managers. It contains many practical examples and suggestions that provide inspiration for your own leadership practice. You can read the book as an invitation to start using Appreciative Inquiry right away.
