This workshop explores positive leadership through the practical application of effec­tive evidence-based practices from the field of positive organisational psychology. It examines the role and effect of the emotional culture in organisations, and the impact of an environment of appreciation on emotional health and resilience.

The experience of positive emotions leads to greater creativity, improved decision-making, higher morale, and stronger relationships and commitment. Research has shown that organisations that are realistically optimistic and actively hopeful about the future, and that focus on strengths rather than weaknesses, have an advantage in increasing productivity, performance and commitment, and decreasing staff turnover, absenteeism and work-related stress.

This workshop reinforces the theoretical underpinnings of positive leadership and provides the opportunity to build greater self-awareness of personal talents. The learning extends to understanding how others operate and how their strengths may more effectively be harnessed.

The workshop provides personal leadership practices to foster a positive climate, and support for a more resilient leadership and organisational future. Learning methods employed include self-awareness and reflection exercises, experiential and interactive activities, the provision of materials and take-away resources, and short lecture components.
