This subject explores how positive psychology practitioners can initiate, implement and lead change across the workplace, learning institution, or broader community, and facilitate the development of an evidence base for demonstrating the impact of their strategies to ensure change is embedded. Models for exploring and implementing organisational change are introduced, and examples of larger scale policy models are explored. Students will use an action research model in their schools that will be informed by theories from positive organisational scholarship, positive organisational behaviour, and appreciative inquiry.
