Appreciative Intelligence. Put in the most concise, metaphorical way, Appreciative Intelligence is the ability to see the mighty oak in the acorn; that is, it’s all about the ability to perceive the positive inherent generative potential in the present. And, as the reader will soon see, it’s a powerful construct.

The book: The Appreciative Intelligence book is a well-written, enjoyable guide that not only clearly explains the ideas . In summary, he says, they have the ability of "seeing the mighty oak in the acorn". I found his thesis and explanations to be elegant and inspiring.

Appreciative Intelligence provides a new answer to what enables successful people to dream up their extraordinary and innovative ideas; why employees, partners, colleagues, investors, and other stakeholders join them on the path to their goals, and how they achieve these goals despite obstacles and challenges. It is not simple optimism. People with appreciative intelligence are realistic and action oriented—they have the ability not just to identify positive potential, but to devise a course of action to take advantage of it. Drawing on their own original research and recent discoveries in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, Thatchenkery and Metzker outline the evidence for appreciative intelligence, detail its specific characteristics, and show how you can develop this skill and use it in your own life and work. They show how the most successful leaders are able to spread appreciative intelligence throughout an organization, and they offer tools and exercises you can use to increase your own level of appreciative intelligence and so become more creative, resilient, successful, and personally fulfilled.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The construct: The Appreciative Intelligence construct is an empowering and inspiring notion that everyone would benefit from learning. In fact, it could literally change the course of lives, careers, and company successes.

The book: The Appreciative Intelligence book is a well-written, enjoyable guide that not only clearly explains the ideas, but provides specific tools for putting them into action.

DETAILS
As a business executive, author, and researcher, I am always looking for answers to the question, "What motivates people and organizations to take action and make changes that improve their situations?" Appreciative Intelligence provides a powerful, new perspective on this question.

Thatchenkery's central question is similar: "What is the ability that enables some people to take new or challenging circumstances and turn them into successful experiences for themselves and those around them, while others waver at similar situations?" He says there are 4 qualities: persistence, conviction that one's actions matter, tolerance for uncertainty, and irrepressible resilience. In summary, he says, they have the ability of "seeing the mighty oak in the acorn". I found his thesis and explanations to be elegant and inspiring.

What makes this book really standout from others is the thorough and practical treatment Thatchenkery gives to his question. Appreciative Intelligence has a clear, logical structure and every well-written page provides new insights that support the structure of his argument. In other words, I felt it is a fluff-free book that was well-worth my time and money.

In summary, this is one of those books that can change your life, if you put the principles into action.

What if we were able to reframe challenging and difficult situations to discover hidden possibilities? This ground-breaking work presents the compelling case that appreciative intelligence is the capacity to see potential that resides in all of us. Full of real-life stories and simple tools, this work is recommended for anyone who senses there is a better place to start than problem-solving.

I very much APPRECIATE the concept. It could use some diligent editing, though. There is significantly distracting repetition in the content.

In a remarkable turn of events, this week's Fortune magazine cover article highlights the ways that former GE CEO Jack Welch's management maxims, once taken as gospel by leaders around the world, are now being questioned and even rejected. Welch is credited with reinvigorating Six Sigma, the penultimate tool set for organizational improvement. It's probably no coincidence that Tojo Thatchenkery and Carol Metzker's new book on Appreciative Intelligence (Seeing the Mighty Oak in the Acorn) should emerge at the same time to offer a powerful alternative to traditional forms of management thinking that have spawned problem solving, "forced ranking," and other deficit-oriented approaches to organizational change.

Appreciative Intelligence is defined by the authors (full disclosure: Thatchenkery and I were in graduate school together nearly twenty years ago but have had virtually no contact since then) as consisting of three components: reframing, appreciating the positive, and seeing how the future unfolds from the present. The book is full of wonderful case examples, both for-profit and non-profit settings, of how the principles of Appreciative Intelligence can be understood and practiced. There are simple methods for profiling one's own levels of Appreciative Intelligence, awareness and action.

While researchers will find several chapters digging into the biological basis for Appreciative Intelligence of considerable academic interest, probably the biggest payoff of this book for organizational practitioners is the last chapter on how to apply the principles to employee development efforts. As the process owner for career development within a major global technology company, this book provides powerful support for continuing to find ways to build on the internal talent that many companies and organizations possess by focusing on future potential - seeing the mighty oak in the acorn - and helping to realize that potential in ways that benefit the individual and the enterprise.
This a book with a fresh, powerful message and tools for leaders everywhere. It is especially valuable in the Agile community where we are trying to clearly define and capture what leadership and innovation mean on Agile projects.

I found myself drawn in page after page as stories of "reframing", "appreciating the positive", and "seeing how the future unfolds from the present" unfolded to to articulate the contruct (not concept) of Appreciative Intelligence.

In my opinion, the latter half of the book is better suited for those interested in practical application. Also be warned that the considerable erudition of the authors shows up in a flood of references that might slow down your reading.

All in all, a great book with fresh thinking and tools for those interested in leadership and innovation.
