Thriving in the Fire; Coaching the Conflicts of Change

Rev. Dr. Felix Villanueva, MCC
Fire is an appropriate metaphor for conflict as well as change. Like fire, conflict begins small. If left alone, it can grow to disastrous proportions. If managed, properly, like fire, conflict can help us develop stronger bonds and spark new paths for growth.
 
What would happen, if instead of running away from the fire, we were to learn to thrive in it? How would our lives be enhanced if we were to embrace change and its natural sibling, conflict, when they surface? This book guides you through understanding change and conflict and will offer a new perspective about in how anyone can thrive in the fire!

Appreciative Coaching:  A Positive Process for Change

Sara Orem, Jacqueline  Binkert & Ann Clancy
Appreciative Coaching describes an approach to coaching that is rooted in Appreciative Inquiry. At its core the Appreciative Coaching method shows individuals how to tap into (or rediscover) their own sense of wonder and excitement about their present life and future possibilities.

Rather than focusing on individuals in limited or problem-oriented ways, Appreciate Coaching guides clients through four stages—Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny—that inspire them to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future.
