Every leader cares about inclusivity, wellbeing and performance. For technical organizations these issues are especially acute: in the least diverse sectors, with every-increasing issues around mental health and resilience, companies need to realize continuous gains in performance and productivity to stay ahead,or even just to stay in the game,in a fiercely competitive space. How can leaders square the circle?This book will show you how to build a Strengths-Based Organization: an organization which is based on the scientific understanding of what helps individuals to flourish and organizations to reap the benefits.
