Product: Online streamed self-assessment application (not downloaded), limited one-year subscription (5 tests or 12 months, whichever comes first), password controlled

Duration: 68 questions in ten categories (the first five related to Positive Leadership book; the second five related to the Practicing Positive Leadership book): 1) Positive Climate, 2) Positive Relationships, 3) Positive Communications, 4) Positive Meaning, 5) Personal Managemnt Interviews, 6) Create a Culture of Abundance, 7) Developing Positive Energy, 8) Accomplishign Everest Goals, 9) Deliver Negative Feedback Positively, 10) Apply in Organizations. The self-assessment takes 15-20 minutes to complete.

Results: You will receive a radar graph that shows your relative strenths and weaknesses in the ten areas described above. The author also offers interpretation of your results and provides references for each of the ten areas in his two books, Positive Leadership (questions 1-24) and Practicing Positive Leadership (questions 25-68). By reading your results, you can gain important insights on how to practice positive leadership in your organization. The author addresses next steps both for the individual and groups. There are also opening and closing statements from the author, the ability to compare current and former results, and a print option.

BASED ON THE BOOK: PRACTICING POSITIVE LEADERSHIP Over a decade ago, Kim Cameron and some colleagues decided that rather than analyze what went terribly wrong with organizations and how to prevent it, they would look at what went extraordinarily right and how to replicate it. This was the birth of positive organizational scholarship, a new field that focused on what they called "positive deviance"-outcomes that far exceeded normal success.

In his previous book Positive Leadership, Cameron outlined four leadership strategies-Positive Climate, Positive Relationships, Positive Communications, and Positive Meaning-that characterize exceptionally high-performing organizations. Here he takes these strategies further by laying out tactics for implementing them:

  • Creating a Culture of Abundance: five specific steps leaders can take to create an organizational culture that enables members to experience vitality, flourishing, and engagement
  • Developing Positive Energy Networks: tools and practices for cultivating positive energy in oneself and for diffusing it throughout the organization
  • Delivering Negative Feedback Positively: techniques for delivering difficult but necessary messages in ways that build and strengthen relationships
  • Establishing and Achieving Everest Goals: guidelines for setting goals that have all the characteristics of SMART goals but go far beyond them
  • Applying Positive Leadership in Organizations: a powerful tool for determining exactly how to implement positive leadership practices in the particular circumstances of your organization

Study after study (some of which are cited in the book) has shown that companies practicing positive leadership far outperform their competitors. So virtue may be its own reward, but it also delivers breakthrough results that any organization can achieve thanks to Kim Cameron's concise, how-to guide.
