Welcome to the Positive Organizations Consortium

The Positive Organizations Consortium is a vibrant, leader-to-leader learning and networking community designed to create highly effective workplaces where people thrive. Established in 2014 at the Center for Positive Organizations, our members empower people and teams to reach their full potential through the science of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS).

Our Purpose

We bring together leaders with world-class researchers who share a common vision that a thriving organization starts with thriving people. Leaders learn new skills and practices to transform their organizations through sustainable, positive change to cultivate purpose, compassion, resiliency, growth, and high-performing teams.

We learn and grow together. We foster long-term personal connections. And we provide customized support and resources along the way.

Our Community

The Consortium is an inclusive community of open sharing, trust, support, and respect. Each member brings a diverse background of culture, experiences, perspectives, ideas, and expertise. Together, we strive to build a better world through the science and practice of thriving organizations.
