Positive Power Overview – Part Four

Here’s the overview of the fourth part of my book/blog: “Positive Power at Work – How to make a positive difference from any position.”

Are you able, willing and ready to be a Positive Agent? You can make a positive difference from any position, without needing permission or resources from others. This blog will help you see positive possibilities and (re)claim your positive agency. Unstuck yourself and engage others with your interaction and actions. Transform into a positive organization where people and performance thrive.

After having focused on “me”, this second part of the Personal Positive Power posts was about your interactions with others.

We explored ways to connect and build a relationship with respect for others, using positive inquiry, compassion, as well as having difficult conversations and asserting yourself. We practiced to see the best selves of others and to ask questions.
