Positive Psychology At Work brings the fields of positive psychology and Appreciative Inquiry together for the first time to provide leaders and change agents with a powerful new approach to achieving organizational excellence. It draws together positive psychology and appreciative inquiry in the context of leadership organizational challenges for the first time. It presents academically rigorous and referenced material in a jargon–free, accessible manner and is arranged with chapters focused on specific organizational challenges to allow readers to quickly find ideas relevant to their unique situation. It features short contributions from experienced practitioners of positive psychology and Appreciative Inquiry, and includes case studies from the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA.


Overall, I would recommend this book to postgraduate researchers, consultants and senior managers who are serious about wanting to invest the time to learn more about the use of positive psychology and appreciate inquiry to improve organisations. - The Psychologist, 1 October 2011.

I believe this book will quickly become a classic reference text. In just over 200 pages Lewis has produced a content rich, accessible work that readers will want to revisit regularly. And I’ve no doubt they will be pleasantly surprised at how much fresh information they glean each time they do. - People Management, April 2011.

For these reasons, Lewis’s timely and accessible book will be useful to business leaders and introductory audiences interested less in the science behind positive psychology and appreciative inquiry than in its ready application to the organizational setting. - PsycCRITIQUES , 11 July 2012.
