Positive management is defined as a style of management that helps organizations build a competitive advantage by adopting management techniques that encourages employees to give their best instead of stressing them out to perform. Positive Management is about making good relations with employees to inspire them to give their best. It is about giving employees a reason why they should get up early in the morning to come to work every day to give their best and deliver. Positive management is very much related to organizational culture. Organizational culture is a set of values, understandings and beliefs that company members share together and positive management is about working within those beliefs and nurturing them to make employees motivated to get the job done. It is about realizing that people are the most valuable company resource and hence must be treated as such to make them belong to the place and want to give their best. Positive management is about building and sustaining a competitive advantage to organizations.
