✓ Do you want to be a leader instead of a manager? ✓ Is it your goal to have a positive impact on the world? ✓ Are you looking to improve your leadership skills to inspire your team? Leadership is the glue that unites the world. Great leaders make an impact on the world, especially positive leaders like Mandela, Gandi, or John F. Kennedy. We need leaders in our societies, in companies, organizations, family, and even groups of friends to bring people together towards better outcomes. Positive leadership distinguishes successful organizations from the rest. It provides you with the power to unite people around a vision, a vision they will fight for as if it were their own. Inspired and motivated team members are a hundred times more effective than employees driven by money and personal interests. While the first will make the extra mile for the success of the organization, the second will only consider the relationship between their effort and their reward, disregarding the group. “Lead to Leadership” series will teach how to become a great leader, to embrace leadership as a lifestyle, and use it to empower others and improve their lives. You will become a leader at work, with your family and group in your group of friends and you will have the answers to lead them to success. For many years, I have studied and practiced leadership. As an entrepreneur, I understood pretty early that the success of my business would be directly correlated with my leadership skills. After a lot of work and lots of mistakes, I know what works and what does not in terms of leadership approaches, what is important to be a great leader, and how to inspire and motivate my team members. Furthermore, I learned first hand how can you find and develop new leaders in your teams, leaders that will help you spread your vision further than you could ever expect on your own. Positive leadership, with honesty empathy, and initiative, can change the world and make it a better place. I’m glad to share that skill and help you become a leader or simply improve your leadership skills. The “Lead to Leadership” series will teach you everything you need to know to become an inspiring leader. It is composed by two Books- this first ebook “Lead to Leadership: The essence of positive Leadership” will teach you the cornerstones of leadership, the qualities of great leaders with a lot of compelling examples of different styles of leadership, and will start your process of becoming a great leader. The second eBook: “Lead to Leadership: Unleash your inner Leader” will build up the knowledge acquired in the first ebook, complete your personal development as a leader and give you the necessary tools to detect and generate new leaders. Invest in yourself, invest in your success, and start reading and developing this much-needed ability today!

The first edition introduced the newly emerging field called Positive Organizational Scholarship. Rather than focusing on organizational dysfunction, Positive Organizational Scholarship looks at organizations that are functioning at an unusually high level. Learning from such successful groups about what they did right forms the backbone of the strategy, because strategies that capitalize on the positive tend to produce life-giving, flourishing outcomes in organizations. The four strategies discussed in the first edition included the cultivation of positive climate, positive relationships, positive communication, and positive meaning. Each strategy is explained and illustrated. In this revised edition, the author will add the following materials: Chapter 1: Outlining three outcomes associated with positive leadership and one more example. Chapter 2: Adding some empirical findings linking attributes of climate with physiological benefits. Chapter 3: A brief discussion of temporary encounters with positive or negative outcomes. Chapter 4: Additional research on the results of the positive-to-negative-communication-ratio. Chapter 5: Elaboration on the issue of meaningfulness in work. Chapter 6: More ideas for implementation

Most educators will agree that they would love to see each student and staff member in schools flourish. Furthermore, it would be great to see entire communities experience the transformative power of circumstances that feature happy and vibrant learning. However, what does it mean to experience flourishing in schools? What is the role of positive leadership in this process? What can we learn from inquiring into the positive emotional and social aspects of the work of school leaders? Building on our research on flourishing in schools, this book highlights the stories and perspectives of educators and school leaders at all levels of the school system and demonstrate the intricacies of how positive leadership contributes to well-being in schools and encourages flourishing in these schools. This book aligns with a growing shift in psychology and organizational studies to frame research using phenomena and constructs such as resilience, compassion, hope, efficacy, self-determination and meaningfulness at work and in other areas of life. Research findings from the disciplines of both positive psychology and positive organization studies bring these positive research intelligences into the field of education to study what works in school leadership practices, what goes well, what supports growth, and what brings vitality to people in school organizations. Research in positive psychology contends that attending to the strengths, positive outlooks, habits and mental models, as opposed to a deficit-oriented perspective, is beneficial to increasing subjective well-being, by increasing resilience, vitality, and happiness and decreasing stress, anxiety, and depression. How we imagine leading, teaching and learning in schools are implicated in these understandings and help us to contemplate the benefits of focus positive leadership in school organizations. Powerful insights into human inquiry and positive psychology are gained through qualitative study and most of the chapters of this book are grounded in such research. Importantly, chapters in this book provide a varied repertoire of answers to the question that underpins this shift in research toward a positive organizational perspective: How does positive leadership leverage what works well to instill in each community member a sense of their value and capacity to contribute, encourage wellbeing for all and create school contexts of flourishing? This edited collection provides many examples, invitations, and inspiration for readers to notice in their own contexts in ways that encourage them to shift and grow through moving toward appreciative, strengths-based, positive approaches to teaching, learning, and, especially, leading in all school contexts.

Nothing fully prepares one for service in a combat zone. When I was selected to command the NATO Air Training Command Afghanistan and the 438th Air Expeditionary Wing in Kabul, I had almost a quarter century of uniformed service to prepare me for this dynamic assignment. “Dynamic” because the mission would be to develop an independent, self-sustaining Afghan Air Force … in an active war zone. The book you hold in your hand is a collection of the most important lessons we learned. Lessons which anyone, be it a parent, pastor, politician, soldier, teacher, or office teammate, can use to begin transforming ordinary interactions into powerful, positive experiences. War zone not required. “I was honored to have served with General Michel in Afghanistan and observed first hand true leadership in practice under the most difficult conditions - In the Art of Positive Leadership, General Michel has captured the essence of the leadership style and skill that made him so successful in a theater of war - he has used a unique blending of axioms and stories, born from the very best leaders, in an amazingly powerful message about the techniques and impact of leaders that unselfishly focus on what can be, what should be, and the people that actually make it happen ~ John Johns, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Maintenance)

This landmark book translates positive and asset-based understandings of organizations to develop a powerful model of school leadership that is grounded in both existing research and the complexities of life in schools. The authors - both senior scholars in educational leadership - apply insights from positive psychology to the role and function of educational leaders. The Positive School Leadership (PSL) model draws on the strengths of relationships among staff and the broader school community to communicate and instill shared values and a common mission. This book builds a compelling case for creating a more inclusive, less "mechanistic" approach to leadership. Designed to engage both the hearts and minds of readers, the text is organized around reflective questioning of educational practice and current assumptions about the purposes and goals of leadership in schools.

What is different about managers who consistently inspire their staff to become highly motivated, loyal team members with outstanding achievements? What does it take for employees to develop their potential instead of just performing assigned tasks? This book, Positive Leadership, introduces the wide-ranging research that shapes this revolutionary leadership and, most important, it describes many field-tested tools to implement this approach. Numerous examples show how leaders, coaches, and consultants have successfully used Positive Leadership in their work. PERMA-Lead presents a new, evidence- based, and practical Positive Leadership concept supported by more than 500 recent studies from around the world (including those done by the author and his academic colleagues).The scientific evidence shows that this leadership approach is not a socially romantic sentiment, but based on successful experiences.

He founded the first relevant positive leadership approach and highly recommends this book as: “a must-read for leaders, consultants, and change agents who are interested in helping employees flourish, reach their highest potential, and achieve extraordinary success.”
