Abstract

Models of organisational change tend to be outdated, and built on a concept of people as negative, scared and resistant to change. How can the emerging scientific base of positive psychology overhaul this view and give managers new tools to use in managing change? This article looks at the impact of positive emotional states in the change management process, and how this has been developed into an integrated, organisational level method in ‘appreciative inquiry’.
