Positive Leadership and Extraordinary Organisational Performance
Deans lecture series 2012
About the lecture
This presentation reports findings from ten years of research on Positive Organisational Scholarship (POS). POS is the study of especially positive outcomes, processes and attributes of organisations. It builds on but is different from Positive Psychology in its focus on the organisational context. Merely bringing happy people together may not make for an effective organisation, so the dynamics that produce excellence, thriving, flourishing, abundance, and resilience are examined. Special attention is paid to the role of positive leadership in producing positively deviant outcomes.
