Positive leadership is based on principles of Positive Psychology.  This is not “happy-ology,” the power of positive thinking, a self-help movement, or a passing fad.  It is the fastest growing area of psychology. 

For the first 100 years, the field of psychology focused on mental health problems and how to remedy them.  As a result, it had little to say about how to foster excellence.  Positive Psychology corrects this imbalance by studying positive emotions, strengths-based character, ethical behavior, energizing relationships, and healthy organizations.  It is a new science that examines how people thrive, excel, and flourish.
