About the course
People are the heart and soul of all organizations, and as technology changes the world around us, business success will always need to effectively leverage their most valuable resource. Positive Psychology allows you to tap into human behavior and practice transformational leadership, taking your own performance - as well as that of your team – from a point of strength to a point of extraordinary performance. In the face of epic levels of change and an imperative to innovate, implementing positive leadership approaches in the way you lead will enhance your team’s happiness, wellbeing, and productivity—enabling your company to thrive in an increasingly competitive market landscape.
THE POSITIVE LEADERSHIP EXECUTIVE MASTER’S DEGREE Understanding human behavior has never been more crucial—especially when it comes to your workforce. As technology and globalization level the playing field, positive, talented, and engaged employees are key drivers of growth. To unlock their full potential and ensure sustainable high performance in a reality where career spans are lengthened and stress levels are rising, senior professionals need to lead holistically, focusing on the real drivers of engagement as they optimize their business strategy.
The Executive Master in Positive Leadership & Transformation is designed to help experienced leaders further improve their management skills, solving real-world challenges in the most efficient and sustainable way. Participants will learn how to use the power of positive psychology to change perspectives and behaviors, while strengthening their own decision-making, coaching, and business strategy capabilities.
