Substantial empirical evidence from a wide variety of organizations confirms that these strategies are crucial for achieving what I call positively deviant levels of performance—that is, performance that allows individuals and organizations to achieve their highest potential, flourish at work, experience elevating energy, and achieve levels of effectiveness difficult to attain otherwise.
This book offers five sets of very concrete positive leadership practices to help leaders implement the four positive strategies in all types of organizations, including businesses, educational institutions, health care organizations, community associations, sports teams, and families. Organizational change agents—whether internal or external consultants, unit leaders, or parents—will find this book to be of particular relevance.
Specifically, the book addresses the criticisms of some detractors that positive leadership is too soft, touchy-feely, smiley-face, saccharine, New Age, or naive. Some claim that positive leadership ignores the hard-nosed, competitive, and challenging aspects of leadership.

While the positive practices outlined in this book are aimed at producing positive results, they are not synonymous with mere sweetness or indulgence. They are intended to help leaders address common challenges and difficult obstacles that characterize all organizational settings. Positive leadership practices are anything but superficial and permissive. They require effort and tenacity if positively deviant results are to be produced.
The practices described in the book have been selected because they are less well known than common organizational intervention techniques such as team building, trust building, consensus building, and influence building. The practices here are meant to supplement those useful common techniques. They have been tested in the field as well as having their credibility confirmed in scientific research.
Though not all of the practices will be applicable in all organizational settings, you are likely to find several that will assist you in achieving extraordinarily positive performance. I owe a debt of gratitude to many of my colleagues who have provided insight into the practices associated with positive leadership and who have served as role models for putting them into action.

A key strategic pillar is an emphasis on the positive—positive business, positive leadership, and making a positive difference in the world. Humana, one of the largest health insurance providers in the United States, recently changed its identity from being an insurance company to being a well-being company.
The primary objective is to create benefits for employees and customers by implementing practices based on positive leadership and positive organizational scholarship. A signature feature of Japanese manufacturing philosophy is the elimination of waste. Negative leaders represent waste and inefficiency, he suggests, whereas positive leadership produces sustainable improvement. Jim Mallozzi, former CEO of one of the Prudential Financial Services businesses, turned around the financial performance in his organization by providing his top team the latitude to experiment on being positively deviant leaders.

Both top-down and bottom-up interventions are being initiated. Producing extraordinarily high performance, generating positively deviant results, and creating remarkable vitality in the workplace are the primary objectives of positive leadership. Positive leadership involves the implementation of multiple positive practices that help individuals and organizations achieve their highest potential, flourish at work, experience elevating energy, and reach levels of effectiveness difficult to attain otherwise.
The practices included in this book can help produce such extraordinarily positive results. Empirical research by recent scholars, as well as anecdotal evidence such as the examples described above, confirms that positive leadership practices produce results that exceed normal or expected performance.
