Designing for Engagement

  • David Cooperrider’s research that led to Appreciative Inquiry, most notably his brilliant essay Positive Image/Positive Action.
  • Fred Polak’s Image of the Future. His research found that cultures die within a generation if they cease to have a positive image of their future.
  • My discovery that 100% of the methods we included in The Change Handbook involve an aspirational focus.
