Every day brings a new opportunity to see the problems that plague us, or the possibilities that propel us. Will you choose to seek, find, and create possibilities with me?
As the Robert P. Stiller Endowed Chair of Management & Academic Director of the Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry at Champlain College, I love creating transformational learning environments for all ages. Beyond the classroom, my scholarship aims to advance the field of Organization Development and Change.
As an international speaker, consultant, and facilitator, I have worked to help individuals and organizations across the globe unleash possibilities. As a thought-leader in the Appreciative Inquiry global community, I serve on the editorial team for the AI Practitioner Journal and constantly seek ways to translate theory into practice.
As a pragmatic optimist, I pride myself on being a "possibilitizer". This means I love seeing and seeding opportunities for creating generative change in the world. From leading global Appreciative Inquiry summits to accelerating an Earth Shot OD movement, I am working to bring the future I most want to see come to life every day.
