Whole Systems Healing & Appreciative Inquiry

Earlier this month, I participated in a conference on "Whole Systems Healing" put on by the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota and the Life Science Foundation. At the conference, I helped video tape interviews with some of the presenters. I'd like to share this interview with Diana Whitney with you. Diana is one of the leaders in the field of Appreciative Inquiry. If you want to know how to bring out the best in your organization, listen to Diana. I draw on Appreciative Inquiry in much of the work I do with organizations. It was an honor to connect with Diana. I also recommend the other interviews we did at the conference. If we won't quickly learn how to heal large human systems, we're in big trouble. I was quite encouraged by the many streams of systemic healing that came together in this conference.
