Leadership in the 21 st century rests in a leaders’ ability to cultivate resilience, adaptivity, and innovation within individuals, teams, and the workplace as a whole. In this class we will explore the emerging area of Positive Leadership, which draws on the academic disciplines of Positive Psychology, Organisational Behaviour, Education and Organisational Studies. We use a series of activities, assessments and reflective exercises to introduce the core concepts of Positive Leadership and to develop capabilities of class participants around positively leading individuals and teams. In particular, we focus on four areas that are key enablers of positive deviance, effective change, and employee well-being: Authentic Leadership, Character Strengths, Psychological Capital, and Appreciative Inquiry.
On successful completion of this program, students should be able to:
