Appreciative Coaching by Sara Orem.

Do you remember the Capella University- a pioneer in e-learning since 1993 that currently offers 82 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate programs?

The online university currently serves more than 17,900 students from all 50 states and 56 countries.

Sara Orem, a faculty of Capella University’s School of Business and Technology has co-authored a book titled ‘Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change’. Her co-authors are Jacqueline Binkert, PhD, and Ann Clancy, PhD.

Being an academician, I am aware some of radical changes in the teaching methodologies that are inducted by eminent psychologists and educators. The age old method of indifference to students’ grasping power, psychological tuning are being discarded with this new method of appreciate coaching that believes people and organizations flourish when they focus on human ideals, achievements, and best practices.

Appreciative Coaching, which has been published by Jossey-Bass, uses positive questions, mindfulness, and other tools to acknowledge the strengths of individuals and effect change.

As ever, Capella University is committed towards excellence and this new educational methodology by its staff member is one more proof of their high-caliber academic excellence and pursuing balanced business growth. Capella University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capella Education Company, headquartered in Minneapolis.
