Positive Power Overview – Part Three

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

Are you able, willing and ready to be a Positive Agent? Part Three explores the personal preparation that we might need to do before we can make a positive difference. Why is that? If we don’t heal our hurts and hinders, we might project our fears onto others, we might not see clearly and it may be harder to be genuine and authentic.

You can make a positive difference from any position, without needing permission or resources from others. This book 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.
