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).

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, 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.

About the Forum

This year’s Consortium Member Forum has two options for joining: live in person on campus at the University of Michigan or live online in a high-quality simultaneous session hosted by faculty facilitators on Zoom Meeting. In either format you will have the opportunity to reconnect with other members and learn together with Ethan Kross, one of the world’s leading experts on controlling the conscious mind. Ethan is an award-winning professor and bestselling author who studies how the conversations people have with themselves impact their health, performance, decisions, and relationships. 

Ethan will spend the morning showing us how we can harness our inner voices as leaders to make them work for us rather than against us. We will spend the afternoon applying tools from his book Chatter in a unique design challenge format that will have you actively using what you’ve learned to create something you can put to use in your own organization right away.
