Positive Leadership: Strategies for Extraordinary Performance
Kim S Cameron
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Introducing a new leadership field of the same name, Positive Leadership presents a concise, accessible and practical guide to strategies that can help leaders reach beyond ordinary success to achieve extraordinary effectiveness, spectacular results, and positively deviant performance.
Positive Leadership is based on analyses of organizations that have achieved levels of success that are exceptional. For example, the Rocky Flats Nuclear Arsenal closure and cleanup crew completed their assignment 60 years ahead of schedule, $30 billion under budget, and made the area 13 times cleaner than was required by federal standards. This company's achievement far exceeded every knowledgeable expert's predictions of performance--it was abnormally positive. Carefully examining organizations such as this one has helped uncover some atypical leadership strategies that enable levels of performance which exceed expectations, excel beyond the norm, and reach almost impossible levels of excellence.
“This accessible and uplifting book translates years of social science research into actionable guidelines for leaders who wish to make a positive difference in the world.”
—Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School
“Kim Cameron provides a sound empirical basis for the link between positive executive behavior and outstanding business performance as well as practical strategies that leaders can apply to achieve extraordinary results through positive performance.”
—Thomas Glocer, CEO, Thomson Reuters
“Positive Leadership brilliantly advances the argument for and validation of tangible strategies for creating extraordinary organizations. This work is comprehensive, well-documented, compelling, and insightful and represents a genuine contribution to the field.”
—Jim Loehr, EdD, CEO and Chairman, Human Performance Institute
