Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the First Edition

“This accessible and uplifting book translates years of social science research into actionable guidelines for leaders who wish to make a positive difference in the world.”
—Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School

This book is well-worth the quick read and can serve as a valued companion as you generate your own positively deviant performance.”
—Sam Farry, Graziadio Business Review, Pepperdine University

“Positive Leadership brilliantly advances the argument for and validation of tangible strategies for creating extraordinary organizations. This work is comprehensive, well-documented, compelling, and insightful and represents a genuine contribution to the field.”
—Jim Loehr, EdD, CEO and Chairman, Human Performance Institute

Kim Cameron is recognized as the foremost expert on positive relational energy, which is generated by virtuous actions and can have a profound impact on an organization’s success and an individual’s professional and personal life. Over the years, his research on organizational virtuousness and the development of “cultures of abundance” has been published in more than 140 academic articles and 15 scholarly books, and he was recently recognized as being among the top 10 scholars in the organizational sciences whose work has been most frequently downloaded from Google.

His latest book, Positively Energizing Leadership: Virtuous Actions and Relationships that Create High Performance, is a culmination of his research and discoveries over the past couple of decades. He is the first author to examine scientific research around individual attraction and response to the presence of positive energy. He provides in-depth insights based on validated research around the effect of positively energizing leadership on an organization and its employees.

Cameron serves as the William Russell Kelly Professor of Management and Organizations in the Ross School of Business and Professor of Higher Education in the School of Education at the University of

Michigan and consults with a variety of leading business, government, and educational organizations around the world. He is a co-founder of the Center for Positive Organizations at the University of Michigan.

Cameron received BS and MS degrees from Brigham Young University and MA and PhD degrees from Yale University. He served on the National Research Council, was president of Bay Asset Funding Corporation, and was a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar. He is a Fellow in the Academy of Management and a recipient of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society’s Outstanding Educator Award.
