Brief description of Profit from the Positive: Proven Leadership Strategies to Boost Productivity and Transform Your Business, with a foreword by Tom Rath

Profit from the Positive is a rare business book that is deeply credible and compels you to act right away. If you put its tools and techniques into practice, you will become a better leader.”Tom Rath, from the Foreword

You're constantly challenged to grow your business, increase productivity, and improve quality―all while reducing or keeping budgets flat. So what's a manager to do?

You've streamlined processes. You've restructured. You’ve sought customer and employee feedback. You've tried everything. Now, try something that works. Profit from the Positive is a practical, groundbreaking guide for business leaders, managers, executive coaches, and human resource professionals. Whether you lead three employees or 3,000, this book shows you how to increase productivity, collaboration, and profitability using the simple yet powerful tools from the new field of Positive Psychology.

Featuring case studies of some of the most forward-thinking and successful companies today―Google, Zappos, and Amazon, to name a few―Profit from the Positive provides over two dozen evidence-based tools you can apply immediately. Learn how to:

  • Set habits, not just goals
  • Recognize the Achoo! effect
  • Stop asking the wrong questions
  • Hire for what's not on the resume
  • Turn strengths into a team sport
  • Preview, don't just review, performance

The best part? These strategies don't cost a dime to implement! Trained by Dr. Martin Seligman, who is known as the father of Positive Psychology, Margaret Greenberg and Senia Maymin translate the scientific research and make it accessible to the business world.
