Freddie Crous is Professor of Industrial Psychology at the University of Johannesburg.
Twenty years ago Freddie’s kidneys failed. After eight months of dialysis treatment Freddie received a kidney from his brother, Dawie. Tree years later his life was once again threatened by cancer, a side-effect of the anti-rejection medication he has to take. The subsequent drug replacement induced diabetes. Nevertheless, during these trying times Freddie experienced high levels of positive emotions in the form of appreciation and gratitude which sustained him. His discovery of Appreciative Inquiry helped him to inculcate appreciation into his teaching, research, and consulting.
