Abstract and Keywords

Positive organizational scholarship (POS) adopts an affirmative bias, seeking out and building upon the exceptional in organizational life. In this chapter, we contrast the POS perspective on organizational change with what we refer to as the “normal” or “traditional” perspective. We discuss 11 important individual- and organizational-level differences between the two approaches, and identify several promising new directions for change research.

Keywords: Keywords, Change, positive organizational scholarship, leadership
