This webinar will explore ways of pursuing the most positive possible outcome from even the most negative of situations. Unlike approaches based in positive thinking or learned optimism, Positive Academic Leadership is not an attempt to change how one feels about the world, merely how one interacts with the world so as to obtain better results. The goal is to spend less time putting out fires and more time making a real difference in our academic programs.

Outcome of Attending

  • Understand the nature of positive academic leadership and why it is different from the power of positive thinking
  • Become acquainted with the three basic strategies of positive academic leadership
  • Develop a plan to apply the principles of positive academic leadership to one’s own work
