When I quit my school in 1999 as the head of the department of Maths, I had one prime reason. I vowed to adopt a different teaching method than the one followed in most of the schools in India.

I was fed up with shrinking down the human limitations further deep with the problem oriented approach of education.

There are innovative ways to coach and bring out the best from students. Have you heard about Sara Orem’s ‘Appreciative Coaching?’

Sara Orem, faculty member in the online university’s School of Business and Technology, co-authors book titled ‘Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change’

Based on recent developments in psychology and organizational development, Sara Orem had formulated this fresh educational strategy that uses positive questions, mindfulness, and other tools to acknowledge the strengths of individuals and effect change.

“Rather than focusing on individuals in limited or problem-oriented ways, Appreciative Coaching guides the reader through four stages – Discovery, Dream, Design and Destiny – that inspire them to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future,” Orem says.

Capella University is lucky to have her in their academic team.
