Executive Leadership

Buckle up! You’ve been dealing successfully in your leadership development plan with the rapid global economic, technological, cultural, and moral shifts taking place. Now, the next stage, which will be at breakneck speeds, exceeds our expectations (Thanks to Capitalist Exploits, for this great graphic). As Presidents, CEOs, and community and business leaders, how might we strengthen our leadership with solid, core principles during these times of exponential progress?

In leadership development, Positive Psychology sets the stage for nurturing hope. Discussions on this topic were a common occurrence when I was studying for my Masters in Transformational Leadership at Bethel University. Positive psychology is a scientific approach that focuses on the positive events and influences in life. It aims to move people who are struggling from merely coping, to thriving. These positive traits include gratitude, resilience, optimism, and hope. The one that has always grabbed my imagination, is hope.
