Positive Organizational Scholarship is a path-breaking scholarly volume exploring the dynamics in organizations that lead to extraordinary individual and organizational performance.
Just as positive psychology focuses on exploring optimal individual psychological states rather than pathological ones, Positive Organizational Scholarship focuses attention on optimal organizational states—the dynamics in organizations that lead to the development of human strength, foster resiliency in employees, make healing restoration, and reconciliation possible, and cultivate extraordinary individual and organizational performance.
Written by internationally renowned scholars and authors, Positive Organizational Scholarship offers practical guidance for managers and a future research agenda for understanding and enabling positive organizational behavior.
