INSTITUTE OF
POSITIVE LEADERSHIP

A scientifically-based approach to creating flourishing leaders and workplaces.

Supporting leaders to advance their career and their well-being

Leaders today are under enormous pressure. The external landscape is shifting and leaders are being asked to do more with less. Constant change and uncertainty is taking its toll on the energy and well-being of many. Engagement and retention continues to be a challenge.

Today, positive leaders are needed more than ever. We’re not talking pollyanna positivity where everything is a song and dance every day. We’re talking about applying a new leadership formula and creating positive and healthy leaders and cultures where everyone can flourish in the constantly changing world of work.

Grounded in scientifically proven research, we create programs that enable leaders to navigate change in a different way, where they can engage and positively respond to the complex issues facing them and their teams.

Why Positive Leadership?

The research is clear. Humans flourish in the presence of positive energy.  Positive leaders produce higher levels of performance, increased engagement, and increased well-being and retention. They also: 

Perform at a higher level. Positive leaders courageously lead with authentic values-based leadership and produce extra discretionary outcomes and results

Create positive relationships. Positive leaders foster high quality connections that bring out the best in themselves and others

Craft meaningful and purposeful work. Positive leaders articulate a mission and purpose and help others get onboard in a way that empowers and inspires. 

Influence and mobilize others. Positive leaders understand their own and others strengths and leverage them in a way that increase their own and others capacity for excellence and action

Cultivate an environment of learning and innovation where teams drive and embrace change and take inspired action towards meaningful results.
