Dr. Sara Orem knows the perils of multi-tasking. As a core faculty member in leadership at an online university, Dr. Orem uses her laptop computer more than 8 hours a day, sometimes while talking on the phone or checking email on her Blackberry or iPad. Her doctoral dissertation topic was listening to learn in disagreements, perhaps the hardest emotional situation in which to listen to learn. Her interest in neuroscience and listening is part of her curiosity about positive psychology. She regularly presents topics about leadership and coaching to faculty and business partners of her university, and has been the featured speaker at coaching conferences. She is the lead author of Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change, published by Jossey-Bass/Wiley in 2007 and co-author of The Coach’s Guide to Asset-Based Thinking and Appreciative Coaching published by the Cramer Institute in 2009.
