At Rituu's lovely invitation, I'm thrilled to share my recent TEDx Talk, entitled:
"Playful Inquiry - Try this Anywhere."
In this talk, I show how how meaningful conversations can start with a simple playful question, and it’s through sharing stories and listening that we value our human connection and can move from fear to love. I would be very pleased to receive your comments below.
My purpose is to find ways to start meaningful conversations and let the actions follow. I love learning and sharing what works so people can learn to do it for themselves. To that end, my book, Appreciative Inquiry for Collaborative Solutions, 21 Strength-base Workshops enables communities to facilitate conversations and workshops around topics that are important to them. In addition, I’ve created tools on mobile technologies about change and appreciative inquiry.
I was born in Sydney, Australia, and currently live in the United States. My work gives me great joy. As a designer and facilitator of positive, strength-based methods and technologies, I have the privilege to work in the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe, where I experience our common humanity daily. When you give full voice to people - whatever their context or educational background - be willing to step back and allow passion, leadership, joy and productivity to flourish.
I enjoy my own creative endeavors: writing, researching, photography and look for connections and emerging patterns. I am deeply in love with my talented husband, Juergen and my fluffy, black cat, Neo. I celebrate living in our interconnected world, filled with amazing possibilities.
