Lessons in Positive Leadership

Lessons in Positive Leadership

Over the last decade, research in psychology, neuroscience and economics has convincingly demonstrated that individuals, teams, and organizations that incorporate positive approaches are able to achieve superior performance in a sustainable way.

Positive leadership results in employees who are more engaged and who derive greater satisfaction from their work. The bottom-line results of companies who have implemented positive methods are nothing less than impressive, delivering productivity up to three times higher than companies led with conventional methods.

Research by the Harvard Business Review shows that happy employees have on average 31% higher productivity, and their sales are 37% higher. Engaged employee’s creativity is 3 times higher than the unengaged, and they take 565 less sick days.

Learn about the science of Positive Psychology applied to the business world through a Webinar, exclusive for IvyExec members, in which Roberto Zurdo, Service Delivery Executive at Cisco, will take us through his experience as a student in IE´s Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy. IE has translated and applied the rapidly growing science of Positive Psychology to forge a new model of leadership development — Positive Leadership. The Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy (EXMPLS) applies cutting edge science to take your organization to a new level of performance.
