‘Surrender is not giving up, rather it is opening up to the emergent to what is unfolding’.
Denise talks to Dr Neena Verma about the learning and growth that can occur when we are able to accept what is unfolding in our lives, even when that’s hard. Neena talks about her own challenges and personal loss and how she has learned to ‘be present to what life is presenting’. A long-standing practitioner of Appreciative Inquiry, she has been a pioneer of turning this appreciative focus to the shadow side of our lives and using it to find acceptance and growth through challenge.
Dr Neena Verma specializes in Appreciative Inquiry for individual, group & whole system learning & growth. Trained in Appreciative Inquiry with Professors David Cooperrider & Ronald Fry (Co-creators of Appreciative Inquiry) from Case Western Reserve University with a doctorate in Organization Behaviour & Development from the University of Delhi, Neena is the author of “A Mother’s Cry … A Mother’s Growth”, with another book, “Grief .. Growth .. Grace” due in 2021”.
