HD&L Webinar: The Power of Positive Psychology
Webinar Description
Deming argued that what he called profound knowledge, knowledge of variation, systems, psychology, and the theory of knowledge, was the essential knowledge for leadership. Since his death in 1990, psychology has changed dramatically and has become much more powerful. Martin Seligman, who played an important role in much of this development, describes the changes thusly:
  • First, the discipline abandoned behaviorism to embrace cognition and consciousness.
  • Second, it realized that evolution and the brain constrain what we can learn.
  • Third, it ended its fixation on only curing what is wrong to include building what is right and positive in the world.
  • Finally, it discovered that we are drawn into the future rather than driven by the past.
In this webinar, we will discuss the implications of these developments for leadership with particular emphasis on positive psychology, ranging from George Washington’s leadership of the American Revolution to interventions that dramatically reduced the problems for soldiers returning from Afghanistan.
