The Leadership Deep Dive at Weatherhead is an intensive nine-day program designed for senior executives from around the world who are seeking new and innovative ways to advance their organizations. Built on Appreciative Inquiry and emotional intelligence—the revolutionary management principles that originated at Weatherhead—Leadership Deep Dive not only changes businesses, it changes lives.

These universal leadership principles translate across borders into all areas of management and provide participants with a perspective to impact business on a global scale.

A 9-day program divided into three 3-day sessions. Over a 6 month span.
When Cooperrider first talked about these ideas at the Academy of Management in 1984 there was literally laughter in the crowd when he suggested “organizations are not problems to be solved” but perhaps are better approached as gifts, as a “miracle of human interaction” alive with infinite strengths… Today we have an outpouring of new research —the positive psychology movement, the Gallup strength-based human resource methods, the emergence of increasingly sophisticated best practices analysis, theories of positive deviance, solution focused therapies, and the like. AI anticipated and helped nurture a theoretical foundation for all of these. The early AI writings were, in many ways, ahead of their time.
