Abstract:

The areas of change and leadership have received an enormous level of both academic and practitioner attention during the last decade. This may be a consequence of the incessant pressures on organizations to change in order to succeed in an increasingly complex and volatile environment. Against this background, this chapter explores the challenges of change and recent research which illustrates how leaders can impact on change in a way that increases the likelihood of successful implementation. The findings from this research challenge much of the prevailing thinking. However, the chapter proposes that these findings illustrate linkages with concepts drawn from the field of positive psychology. The discussion provides clear evidence that supports the value of applying the concepts of positive psychology within the workplace.
