Positive Psychology and Change : How Leadership, Collaboration, and Appreciative Inquiry Create
About this item
Positive Psychology and Change offers a new perspective on the everyday challenges of organizational change and the role of leadership in a dynamic, adaptive work community. Grounded in psychological research it explores how the insights, methodologies, and techniques of positive psychology and the related business development method Appreciative Inquiry (AI) can together be applied to the challenge of providing effective leadership in conditions of uncertainty. It also shows how collaborative group approaches to transformational change including Open Space, World CafT and Simu-Real can be combined with a positive mindset to maintain optimism and motivation in an unpredictable environment. As leaders seek new ways to introduce change without provoking resistance, this book explains in accessible style, with practical lessons and real-world case examples, how areas of positive psychology such as strengths, flow, psychological capital, and positivity are all relevant and can help.
