Summary

New Edition, Revised and Updated.

Beyond success.

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 behavior, medical science, and psychology as well as real-world examples, Cameron shows that to achieve exceptional success, leaders must emphasize strengths rather than simply focus on weaknesses; foster virtuous actions such as compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness; encourage contribution goals in addition to achievement goals; and enable meaningfulness in work.

In this concise, inspiring, and practical guide, Cameron describes four positive leadership strategies, lays out a proven process for implementing them, and includes a self-assessment instrument. This second edition has been updated throughout with new research findings and new ideas for implementing positive leadership.

Atmosphere Changing

I am now reading another one of her books, Practicing Positive Leadership. I love how she gives you empyrical evidence of the positive leadership and the steps to do it in your own workplace.

Great Book!

As a Positive leadership doctoral student, this book provides great studies and research. Highly recommend it if you are searching for that type of information. It's also an overall great listen/read on Positive Leadership.

Absolutely worthless!

The entire book is nothing more than a compilation of statistics, surveys and assessments validating the practice of enabling, coddling and dismissal. There is absolutely no reference to ownership or accountability and not a single shred of tangible guidance or direction towards leadership above practising statistical group therapy. Very disappointed, do not recommend.
