Appreciative Inquiry in Higher Education
A Transformative Force by Jeanie Cockell and Joan McArthur-Blair




APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY (AI) IN HIGHER EDUCATION is a powerful resource for use in a complex world. AI, with its focus on strengths and what is working well, fosters positive and generative change. This book is a practical guide to the theory and practice of appreciative inquiry. It is full of appreciative inquiry models and processes illustrated through case studies, agendas, and real life stories. This second edition offers an Afterword that adds reflections, appreciative questions, and tools.


"Cockell and McArthur-Blair have crafted a meaningful story for educational leaders by weaving their personal experiences as Appreciative Inquiry facilitators together with a wide range of strength-based and practical positive change theory. The result is a magical book for applying Appreciative Inquiry in higher education."

—Diana Whitney, Ph.D., author, Appreciative Leadership and The Power of Appreciative Inquiry

"Cockell and McArthur-Blair have delightfully woven together how Appreciative Inquiry has been applied in all of higher education with stories of people and relationships illustrating how AI brings life to organizations. They provide guidance to AI practitioners in higher education on the depth and breadth of experiences that inspire those of us in this field."

—Kathy Becker, CEO, Company of Experts, Inc.; CEO, Center for Appreciative Inquiry


Joan McArthur-Blair and Jeanie Cockell, Co-Presidents of Cockell McArthur-Blair Consulting, profoundly believe that education matters. As authors, speakers, facilitators, and consultants, the foundation of their work is lifting up the wisdom found in people to create more appreciative living and working together. Their journeys take them all over the world to work with individuals, teams, and organizations to foster the possibilities of collaborative change. They are the coauthors of Building Resilience with Appreciative Inquiry: A Leadership Journey through Hope, Despair, and Forgiveness (2018).
