Discover the Proven Principles and Practices that Make Great Leaders Great

When some people hear the words positive leadership they roll their eyes because they think we're talking about Pollyanna positive, where life is full of unicorns and rainbows. But the truth is that we are not positive because life is easy. We are positive because life can be hard.

As a leader, you will face numerous obstacles, negativity, and tests. There will be times when it seems as if everything in the world is conspiring against you and your vision seems more like a fantasy than a reality. That’s why positive leadership is essential!

Positive leadership is not about fake positivity. It is the real stuff that makes great leaders great. The research is clear. Being a positive leader is not just a nice way to lead. It's the way to lead if you want to build a great culture, unite your organization in the face of adversity, develop a connected and committed team and achieve excellence and superior results.

There is a power associated with positive leadership and you can utilize the framework, stories and practices in this book to start benefiting yourself and your team with it today!
