Leaders tend to rely heavily on reasoning, logic, telling, selling, persuasion, cajoling and veiled threats to enlist the effort and support of their direct reports.

But why when we know …

“Reason leads to conclusions and emotions lead to action” (D. Calne, Neurologist)

If Leaders want more or different types of action from their workers, they need to know how to induce and develop emotions in their direct reports. Positive emotions in particular, have been shown to make us more:-

  • Constructive
  • Intellectually capable and flexible
  • Creative
  • Effective at building coalitions
  • Tolerant
  • Sociable and
  • Resilient (Fredrickson, 2009)

Research has also shown that when positive emotions predominate over negative in the workplace, positive deviance occurs. This is when organisational and individual performance dramatically exceeds the norm in a positive direction (Cameron, 2003).

Positive Leadership: Creating a Positively Deviant Workplace is a two-day workshop delivered by an Organisational Psychologist with over 20 years of experience and is designed to give leaders the tools to induce and develop positive emotions in their direct reports so that they can engage, energise and inspire them to be and do their best. Individual coaching post-workshop to strengthen Positive Leadership is also available.
