Intellectual Shamans

Waddock defines intellectual shamans as "scholars who become fully who they must be, and find and live their purpose, to serve the world through three capacities: healing, connecting, and sensemaking, and in the process seek or come to wisdom."

Cooperrider's orientation to phenomenon-based research, his field-creating theoretical work on Appreciative Inquiry, and the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit at Weatherhead are recognized in the book.
