Emerging from the new fields of Positive Psychology and the “Science of Happiness,” is a mountain of evidence that a positive workplace – where people get many chances to use their strengths – is more productive, more customer focused, more innovative, more fun and healthier than a negative fear-driven company culture. Scientists have proven that when we experience a positive emotion it actually changes the way our brains work. Under the influence of Positivity we are more creative and solve problems quicker. We’re broader and more open in our thinking and tackle the big thoughts like “What’s possible?” rather than the fear based narrow thinking, like “What’s wrong.” Positive Leaders take the best of the evidence-based Applied Positive Psychology principles and use them in all areas of their lives. JoAnna Brandi’s Positive Leadership programs help you inspire your people to be their best selves at work.
