Whether you lead three employees or 3,000, this book shows you how to increase productivity, collaboration, and profitability using the simple yet powerful tools from the new field of Positive Psychology.

Featuring case studies of some of the most forward-thinking and successful companies today--Google, Zappos, and Amazon, to name a few--"Profit from the Positive" provides over two dozen evidence-based tools you can apply immediately.
