Profile Information

Lindsey Godwin
Champlain College
About Me:
My career truly has embodied a scholar-practitioner model. Having graduated from one of the top-ranked programs in Organizational Behavior, I studied with the leading scholars of Appreciative Inquiry, Emotional Intelligence, and Experiential Learning Theory. My work has been published in a variety of journals and books, appearing most recently in the Oxford Handbook of Positive Organizational Scholarship, and presented at national and international conferences, including the Annual Academy of Management Meetings. I recently served as a guest editor for a special issue on positive organizational ethics for the Journal of Business Ethics.

My career, however, extends beyond the walls of academia and into practice as well. During my time at Case Western, I helped launch the Center for Business as Agent of World Benefit, which sought to highlight and foster the many ways that businesses can be a force for positive social change around the globe.

I also remain very active in the Appreciative Inquiry community of practitioners, serving as a Co-Chair for past World Appreciative Inquiry Conferences held in Orlando, FL and Kathmandu, Nepal, and on the Advisory Board for the conference in Ghent, Belgium. I am delighted to be currently supporting the planning for the upcoming 2015 conference in South Africa. I guest edited a special issue on advances in the AI Summit for the AI Practitioner Journal, as well as serving as the co-editor for the 4th volume in the research book series Advances in Appreciative Inquiry.

With a passion for helping organizations leverage their potential through strength-based change, I have consulted with a wide variety of organizations including: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, the VTFEA, World Vision, Houston Independent School District, The California Teachers Association, Imagine Nepal, The United Nations, the American Society of Association Executives, and the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, among others.
My dream:
To continue to connect with other inspirational souls and collaborate to make the world a better place.
