We're excited to officially announce "Leading with Courage"

How courageous do you think leaders in Australia are?  How courageous are you?  What responsibility do you have to be courageous? 

My purpose is to “open doors,” inviting people to courageously open, step through and explore the other side.  My vision is to build the courage reserves of Australia. 

It is with excitement and anticipation that insium is launching “Leading with Courage,” an initiative aimed precisely at building the courage reserves of Australia.

The 5th World Congress of Positive Psychology

Leading with Courage

As several you are aware, I had the opportunity to present my “Leading with Courage” program at the recent 5th World Congress of Positive Psychology.  I received feedback on the program from a panel comprised of world renowned experts in the field of positive psychology and organisations, including Marisa Salanova, Professor of Work & Organisational Psychology, Jaume I University, Spain, and Anne Brafford, co-founder of Aspire Legal and Chairperson of the American Bar Association’s Attorney Wellbeing Committee.

 

As promised, the next few newsletters will focus on my learning at the recent 5th World Congress of Positive Psychology (WCCP) which was held in Montreal in July.  There was so much learnt, please consider this to be newsletter #1 of … a few.

Kim Cameron (Co-founder, Centre for Positive Organisations, University of Michigan), shared his wealth of knowledge and experience in working with positive organisations, positive leaders and positive energisers.

 

Three key points included:

  • Those who positively energise others are high performers
  • Positive energisers tend to enhance the work of others; people who interact with or are connected to energisers perform better too
  • High performing organisations had three times as many positive energising networks than low performing organisations.

 

Consider the following questions: are you a positive energiser or a de-energiser?
