Do you want a positive difference? If your answer is yes, positive leadership is your starting point. Positive leadership aims for the highest potential of an organization – instead of returning to “normal” after solving a problem it inspires people to go even further, into the realm of “positive deviance”. It often supports people to deliver beyond and above expectations.
That’s exciting, right?
But it doesn’t mean “pushing for positive performance”. It means enticing people to give their best because you are kind, open, trusting, compassionate and supportive. You are a positive leader when you are virtuous and optimistic. Professor Kim Cameron did extensive research and the evidence is clear: if you implement virtuousness, organizational performance goes up.
Cameron’s interest in positive leadership began when the studied downsizing: almost all of the organizations that downsize deteriorate in performance. But 10-15% of organizations tend to flourish after downsizing! So, what was the difference between those who flourished and those who deteriorated?
It turned out to be organizational virtuousness – enhanced by positive leadership.
Positive leadership makes a difference and the good news is that it’s not so hard to do! Do you want to learn more so you can lift your team, organization or client? Then I have even better news for you.
