In 2012 Joan and Jeanie published Appreciative Inquiry In Higher Education: A transformative Force. People are saying…”a magical book for applying appreciative inquiry;” “a must read text for administrators, faculty, staff and students in higher education;” “inspires those of us in the field.”
CMBC works with clients to assess their needs and then designs appropriate strategies to meet these needs. We facilitate processes that generate safe environments where people can take risks to talk openly and honestly with each other in order to learn and grow.
Our services focus on using Appreciative Inquiry and other strengths based solutions to planning, team development, process facilitation, coaching and temporary executive services.
