In helping establish a new field of study in the organizational sciences, POS, this book examines a variety of positive dynamics in businesses and organizations that give rise to extraordinary outcomes. Positive Organizational Scholarship does not adopt one particular theory or framework, but encompasses any phenomenon that leads to positive, nurturing results. This collection of essays, written by established senior scholars, explains why and how these commonsense prescriptions work. This edited collection of academic chapters forms the corpus of a new branch of business studies: positive organizational scholarship. Leading experts in the field weigh in on such diverse topics as gratitude, resilience and positive deviance. Each chapter is organization specific and many make specific, practical suggestions.
