Jane Magruder Watkins has worked in the field of Organization Development for 40 years. She has worked in and consulted to organisations in the business, government and not-for-profit sectors. Her work in over 50 countries has grounded her work in a global consciousness that values the diversity and possibility. Since the mid-1980’s, she has worked with David Cooperrider to develop and spread Appreciative Inquiry (AI) around the globe.
Roger Rowett was fortunate enough to train with Jane in 2009. A wonderful experience and a wonderful lady! One of the many memorable quotes from Jane was ‘plan hard, hang lose’! Good advice for any group training process.
Jane is especially intrigued with the emerging global environment that is calling for new and innovative processes and approaches to change. She sees Appreciative Inquiry as a bridge that enables organisations, communities, individuals and couples to embrace the emerging paradigm, recreating themselves and their realities by imagining and living into their own unique visions of the future.
Jane has published several articles about Appreciative Inquiry and is co-author with Bernard Mohr of the best-selling book on AI called: Appreciative Inquiry: Change at the Speed of Imagination.
