Free Ebook – Exceeding Expectations

Posted: September 29, 2014

The Taos Institute just published a free ebook titled Exceeding Expectations: An Anthology of Appreciative Inquiry Stories in Education from Around the World.

“This book is a collection of deep and rich stories about adults, children and communities working together to shape the future of schools and education. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is the framework explored throughout this book and is a powerful vehicle for multiple generations to consciously collaborate and grow flourishing schools. The stories in this book share a vast array of examples where AI has been utilized to bring about positive change in educational settings around the globe” (The Taos Institute website, 2014).

My colleagues and I co-authored the article titled, “Creating a Legacy to Live Into: The Macon Miracle“. This article is a colorful, heartfelt piece that shares how Bibb County School District (BCSD) engaged the whole education system, along with community leaders in a generative process to accelerate whole system positive change. Ultimately, BCSD’s desired outcome was to generate a new educational system that would ensure that all children receive a high-quality education that will prepare them to be competitive and successful in a global economy.

Please enjoy this great collection of articles submitted by outstanding change agents who are working to create positive, sustainable change that will be seen and felt in the years to come.

    This e-book is inspirational. As an educator in an administrative capacity, working with a very negative group of teachers, I have found a different way of going through with them a way to create a positive collegial collaborative future. There were so many fabulous insights for me, that I can forward. Traditionally I am a great problem solver and have always been highly successful, but to get people on board, I need an approach like you have encapsulated in your book. Thank you and continue the great work.
