Abstract and Keywords
Research to better understand the broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions has provided new vistas for how emotions impact people in their daily organizational life. In this chapter, we draw from a decade of research to show how positive emotions, fueled by strength-based inquiry, can help create upward spirals of positive development through transformative cooperation. We show how the benefits of these emotions can transcend the individual experience and expand through the organization and into the broader community, thus contributing to sustainable enterprise.
