Purpose & Principles | Episode 22 – Dr. Tojo Thatchenkery — Appreciative Intelligence

Dr. Tojo

Reconnecting with a my former graduate school professor and friend, Dr. Tojo Thatchenkerry, to discuss Appreciative Intelligence was fantastic! To find out that some of the work a few of us did 15 years ago has become a foundation for training firemen and front line responders around the greater Washington DC was not only a surprise to me, but it was heartwarming to hear as well. Listen in and enjoy this conversation on actionable things that make a meaningful difference.
