Leaders and managers with strong positive psychological resources such as Hope, Efficacy, Resilience, and Optimism (i.e. HERO) not only have the ability to bounce back after difficult times, but they also can create a contagion effect which can spread positivity throughout an organization. It is important to recognize and develop these positive psychological strengths within your business culture because they have been linked with improved workplace outcomes such a lower employee turnover, higher rated work performance, higher employee commitment and satisfaction, and leadership effectiveness.
