Leadership should be about much more than hitting targets and avoiding mistakes. Kim Cameron shows how to reach beyond ordinary success to achieve extraordinary effectiveness, spectacular results, and what he calls ''positively deviant performance'' - performance far above the norm. Positive leadership enables thriving and flourishing rather than simply addressing obstacles and impediments. It helps bring out the best in human nature. Cameron is one of the founders of the new field of Positive Organizational Scholarship, which studies unusually high - performing organizations. In Positive Leadership he draws on discoveries in this field and in the allied field of positive psychology - which focuses on high - functioning individuals - as well as positive organizational change methodologies. He identifies four interrelated leadership strategies:
Positive Climate: fostering emotions such as optimism, compassion, and gratitude
Positive Relationships: building positive energy networks and developing strength - based activities
Positive Communications: fostering best - self feedback and supportive communication patterns
Positive Meaning: helping people find profound purpose and a sense of calling
Cameron cites the empirical research that these strategies are rooted in and that supports their bottom - line effectiveness, lays out a proven process for implementing them, and includes a self - assessment instrument and a guide to assist leaders in the implementation process. Positive Leadership is a concise, thoroughly researched, and practical guide that any leader can use to generate truly amazing results.

From the Publisher:

"This accessible and uplifting book translates years of social science research into actionable guidelines for leaders who wish to make a positive difference in the world."
--Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School

"Kim Cameron provides a sound empirical basis for the link between positive executive behavior and outstanding business performance as well as practical strategies that leaders can apply to achieve extraordinary results through positive performance."
--Thomas Glocer, CEO, Thomson Reuters

"Positive Leadership brilliantly advances the argument for and validation of tangible strategies for creating extraordinary organizations. This work is comprehensive, well-documented, compelling, and insightful and represents a genuine contribution to the field."
--Jim Loehr, EdD, CEO and Chairman, Human Performance Institute

From the Back Cover:

Written by senior scholars and internationally known authors, Positive Organizational Scholarship establishes a new field of study in the organizational sciences. While the concept of positive organizational scholarship encompasses the examination of typical and even dysfunctional patterns of behavior, it emphasizes positive deviance from expected patterns. Positive Organizational Scholarship examines the enablers, motivations, and effects associated with remarkably positive phenomena--how they are facilitated, why they work, how they can be identified, and how researchers and managers can capitalize on them. The contributors do not adopt one particular theory or framework but draw from the full spectrum of organizational theories to understand, explain, and predict the occurrence, causes, and consequences of positivity.

Positive Organizational Scholarship rigorously seeks to understand what represents the best of the human condition based on scholarly research and theory. This book invites organizational scholars to build upon and extend the positive organizational phenomena being examined. It provides the definitional, theoretical, and empirical foundations for what will become a cumulative body of enduring work.
