A Positive Manifesto

By Leonard C. Burrello, Linda M. Beitz, and John L. Mann


“Powerful discussion on relational leadership. Every educator needs to read this book.” 
-Charlene Green, former Associate Superintendent for Support Services, Las Vegas, NV.

Since the 1980s, new perspectives have emerged representing nothing short of a revolution in how we effect change. All arrows point to a future view that has at its core life-centric purposes and positive, strengths-based theory and practices. Appreciative inquiry (AI) has contributed significantly to the positive change revolution in many professional realms, such as the armed services, United Nations, and Fortune 500 businesses. A Positive Manifesto applies AI to innovation in public education through the authors’ Appreciative Organizing framework, giving public school leaders and stakeholders actionable pathways to take in creating schools that work for all.
