Publisher's Summary

Positive Leadership shows how to reach beyond ordinary success to achieve extraordinary effectiveness, spectacular results, and what Kim Cameron calls "positively deviant performance" - performance far above the norm.

Citing a wide range of research in organizational development and psychology as well as real-world examples, Cameron shows that to go from successful to exceptional, leaders must learn how to create a profoundly positive environment in the workplace. They must build on strengths rather than simply focus on weaknesses; foster positive emotions like compassion, optimism, gratitude, and forgiveness; encourage mutually supportive relationships at all levels; and provide employees with a deep sense of meaning and purpose.

In this concise, inspiring, and practical guide, Cameron describes four specific positive leadership strategies, lays out a proven process for implementing them, and includes a self-assessment instrument and a guide to assist leaders in the implementation process.

    "An Emotional Approach to Getting the Job Done"
    What did you like best about Positive Leadership? What did you like least?

    The author is sincere. Got that. The premise is that an enterprise (company, organization, family) that practices emotional intelligence and provides a respectful, nurturing environment has a performance benefit over those without. Is it intuitively obvious? Yes. Do we need the reminder? Yup. That said, I worry that this could be interpreted by some to believe that the best jobs is where the workplace has devolved int a big group therapy session. Do that before or after hours, thank you.
