Biography

Johan has for over a decade been devoted to explore the power of positive deviance when leading and designing for quality. Since starting in the concept of attractive quality, the exploration has been much inspired by Appreciative Inquiry and the growing field of positive psychology – in a close dance with the fields of design thinking, complexity, leadership and innovation. The current research projects experiment with summit designs and facilitation practices in order to engage whole systems in self-organized design and action for system-wide sustainability and flourishing.
