Appreciative Coaching: The Five Principles and Four Stages

Coaching is a dynamic and alive process. Since the publication of Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change, its lead author, Sara Orem has rethought some of her views on important foci for each of the principles and stages. Using examples from her coaching practice, Sara describes each of these important elements in a way that makes Appreciative Coaching come alive for you as coach, consumer of coaching, or human resource manager!

Appreciative Coaching in Action

During several years of coaching classes with Sara, participants inevitably ask one question: What does this look like in practice? Here finally is an answer for any who wish to practice appreciative coaching with more ease and fluidity. Sara works with two different clients, one corporate and one life coaching, who challenge her to “bring their best to light” in these examples of complete appreciative coaching cycles.

Testimonials

"In all endeavors, Sara provides helpful insight into each unique situation."

As the Research Program Associate at OLLI@Berkeley, I've had the privilege of working with Sara Orem in several capacities.  She is a valuable member of our Research Advisory Team providing counsel on the various opportunities that OLLI pursues in partnership with UC Berkeley research centers and departments.  Additionally, as a OLLI faculty member, I was privileged to work with Sara on her development of the first hybrid course where members prepared using online materials developed by Sara and then participated in interactive in-person discussions.  Finally, Sara is a member of the Research Advisory Board for OLLI's National Science Foundation grant to develop outcome measures for older adult learning in STEM.  In all endeavors, Sara provides helpful insight into each unique situation.

"I had the good fortune of being coached/mentored/supported by Sara at very formative time in my career"

I had the good fortune of being coached/mentored/supported by Sara at very formative time in my career. Sara taught me how to bring my authentic self to work every day. This transformed my leadership and significantly contributed to my overall effectiveness, quality of relationships, and level of satisfaction.

"She brings fresh ideas to the forefront"

Although my work with Sara was over 20 years ago when I think about the leader I am today I have to acknowledge the influence Sara had on my personal development. I have fond memories of our conversations and how she always left me feeling good about myself and my progress as a leader. One time she asked me: “do the people who are closest to you know how happy you are in your career and work life”. That question has stuck with me throughout my career and I’ve shared that with others along the way. In retrospect, I now realize she was always guiding me to make sure I was happy as a whole person. This is the Sara that I know and love.
