Positive Leadership: Strategies for Extraordinary Performance (Updated, Expanded)

By Kim Cameron
NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED
Beyond Success
"Positive Leadership "shows how to reach beyond ordinary success to achieve extraordinary effectiveness, spectacular results, and what Kim Cameron calls "positively deviant performance"--performance far above the norm. Citing a wide range of research in organizational behavior, medical science, and psychology as well as real-world examples, Cameron shows that to achieve exceptional success, leaders must emphasize strengths rather than simply focus on weaknesses; foster virtuous actions such as compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness; encourage contribution goals in addition to achievement goals; and enable meaningfulness in work. In this concise, inspiring, and practical guide, Cameron describes four positive leadership strategies, lays out a proven process for implementing them, and includes a self-assessment instrument. This second edition has been updated throughout with new research findings and new ideas for implementing positive leadership.


    REVIEW QUOTES
Praise for the First Edition "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 "As innovation, knowledge work, and the stress of global competition become increasingly important features of exceptional organizations, the practice of positive leadership becomes especially relevant. This book is well-worth the quick read and can serve as a valued companion as you generate your own positively deviant performance." --Sam Farry, Graziadio Business Review, Pepperdine University "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
