“When I learned to apply the techniques of positive leadership, my ability to influence others toward a common goal increased exponentially. Practicing positive leadership will transform your career and the experience of those you lead!”
-Brent Densford, Chief of Staff, Government Business, Humana
Over a decade ago, Kim Cameron and some colleagues decided that rather than analyze what went terribly wrong with organizations and how to prevent it, they would look at what went extraordinarily right and how to replicate it. This was the birth of positive organizational scholarship.
In his previous book Positive Leadership, Cameron outlined four leadership strategies-Positive Climate, Positive Relationships, Positive Communications, and Positive Meaning-that characterize exceptionally high-performing organizations. In this book he takes these strategies further by laying out tactics for implementing them.
Study after study has shown that companies practicing positive leadership far outperform their competitors. So virtue may be its own reward, but it also delivers breakthrough results that any organization can achieve thanks to Kim Cameron’s concise, how-to guide.
Kim Cameron is professor of management and organizations, cofounder of the Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship, and professor of higher education, all at the University of Michigan. He is the coauthor or coeditor of fourteen books.
