Positive Organisational Behaviour, drawing from the theory of Positive Psychology, is particularly important during the stressful times presently being experienced within the labour market. Employees today, who fail to enhance the positive aspects of work and life, may well find it hard to thrive due to the increasingly difficult and demanding business environment.

Positive Organisational Behaviour (POB) seeks to study positively orientated human strengths and measurable positive psychological capacities that can be developedwithin employees. Hence, the aim of POB is to build on and highlight that which is right in organisations, that aid flourishing at work, and which contribute to future workplaces. POB seeks to redress research that focuses on the negative aspects of work, such as stress and anxiety, and instead develop ways and means to enhance thriving at work.

This presentation will overview the area of POB, the contribution it can make to leadership and employee development, and specifically outline three topical research areas in POB: (1) Broaden and Build (2) Psychological Capital (3) and Self Determination Theory.
This session is intended to be interactive - so bring along your questions and comments!
