London, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 November 2016
Jan Mühlfeit, former Chairman of Microsoft Europe, will officially launch 'The Positive Leader: How Energy and Happiness Fuel Top-Performing Teams' on Monday 28th November, 2016, at the prestigious Imperial College Business School in London.
The Positive Leader, published by Pearson (FT Publishing), offers a powerful four-point approach for becoming a happier and more inspirational leader. Based on Jan’s own experiences at high-tech giant Microsoft, it addresses common leadership errors, such as:
1. Targeting weaknesses, not strengths
2. Managing time, not energy
3. Failing to have a dream
4. Putting success before happiness
With a staggering 87% of the worldwide population not engaged at work and 50% of workers choosing to leave a job to get away from their boss, modern-day leaders have a mighty challenge on their hands. Drawing on key principles of positive psychology, this engaging new book answers the plight of frustrated leaders looking for a more hopeful way to navigate the cut and thrust of the business world. Upon reading this refreshingly straightforward guide, readers will learn how to:
- Unlock their strengths
- Develop charisma and vision
- Become a ‘Chief Energy Officer’
- Create a positive team culture
The book launch event is open to the public. Attendance includes one free copy of the book and other goodies. During the event, Jan and his co-author, Melina Costi, will be available to discuss and answer questions about positive leadership, as well as sign copies of the book.
