Positivity at Work

I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a mid-sized company. We discussed how to develop a positive mindset.

My executive coaching client and I further discussed creating a culture of positivity can help the company’s sales force seal more deals. I am coaching my client on how company leaders can change the way people think and act to create a more positive culture and better results.

The Business Case for Positivity



As neuroscience researchers study the brain and learn more about how we achieve optimal functioning, the term positivity has finally captured business leaders’ interests. What researchers are discovering about positive emotions at work is essential knowledge for anyone who wants to lead individuals and organizations to high performance.

Positive emotions directly correlate with:

  • Increased creativity
  • More curiosity and interest in the world
  • Better health
  • Better social relationships
  • Optimism and perseverance
  • Longevity
The business benefits of positivity include:

  • Lower turnover
  • Improved customer service
  • Better supervisor evaluations
  • Lower emotional fatigue
  • Higher job satisfaction
  • Better organizational citizenship (ethics)
  • Fewer work absences
  • Improved innovation
  • Better safety records
Are you working in a professional services firm or other organization where executive coaches provide leadership development to grow emotionally intelligent leaders? Does your organization provide executive coaching for leaders who need to create a culture of positivity? Enlightened leaders tap into their emotional intelligence and social intelligence skills to create a more positive culture.

One of the most powerful questions you can ask yourself is “Can increasing positivity at work help our company achieve better results and grow?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent organizations provide executive coaching as part of their peak performance leadership development program.

Working with a seasoned executive coach and leadership consultant trained in emotional intelligence and incorporating assessments such as the Bar-On EQ-I, CPI 260 and Denison Culture Survey can help you create a culture where all employees are more positive and fully engaged. You can become a leader who models emotional intelligence and social intelligence, and who inspires people to become fully engaged with the vision, mission and strategy of your company or law firm.
