    Lead Positive What Highly Effective Leaders See Say and Do – Kathryn D Cramer PhD I have to admit the first thing that attracted me to this book was the title Lead Positive Who doesn't want to lead or be led through positive acts and behaviors I expected to be treated to an organized list of dos and don’ts for projecting wisdom and doling out positive emotion in the board rooms as well as the cafeterias across the continent  I got that and so much  I tend to be a positive thinker and am often disillusioned by colleagues and managers whose negativity shows through like sharp prongs on a glass surface The first thing I learned from Lead Positive is that humanly speaking there is a natural tendency for bias toward negativity caused by parts in our brains that are uickly triggered to “avoid harm” while the part to “pursue rewards” is slower to react Now before I lose you on that lesson in neural circuitry the book goes onto explain clearly and in detail how to circumvent negativity and use tools that build a framework of positive influence and actions through Asset Based Thinking ABT Lead Positive takes the fundamentals of ABT and turns them into a practical playbook designed for leaders We are primed for deficit thinking but to ‘lead positive’ we need to train ourselves to engage the parts of our brain that make the best out of negative situations A major thread running throughout this book builds a progression of positive thought of See Say Do which becomes a self reinforcing system I’ve selected a few of the roadmaps and key points to illustrate how we can all become ABT leaders who Lead Positive These important factors are emphasized in ABT• Focus on what you will gain in a situation rather than what you will lose• See your strengths in greater measure than your weaknesses• Observe the best efforts and attitudes of people at least 5 times than you notice their shortcomings Focus on the Present – Find the good in what is going on right now  Lead Positive promotes this Asset Based Thinking ABT exercise as Scan Snap Savor For this exercise take about 90 seconds to break it down• Scan – Look for the positive facts in current situations Consider strengths skills capabilities and attitudes of self others and situations• Snap – Commit to memory that image complete with sensory detail Leadership ability to inspire others and visualize yourself doing that Visualize the roles of your staff and their penchant toward excellent customer service patience with irritating circumstances Picture positive images of trends that have recently shown up on your Facebook page or Google Analytics • Savor – Just as it implies turn those images into lasting positive experiences Let the experience sink in – use this energetic pause to reflect on the positiveA few chapters further into the book Dr Cramer describes three assets you can leverage when you speak  Substance Sizzle Soul • Substance refers to the content of what you say; it’s your credibility it’s your competence and ability to convince • Sizzle embodies the detail of facts while evoking emotion in your listeners• Soul is at the heart of your message answering the ‘why’ of your message – its importance to your listeners your mission and youMuch of the book is based on that self reinforcing system mentioned earlier The practices of See Say Do to energize and empower yourself and others toward Asset Based Thinking ABT which is in essence positive in thought and actionLabeled the three Cs these three ualities are reuired to achieve Positive Leadership • Confident in response to a crisis• Curious in response to conflict • Courageous in response to challengesVarious charts are provided to support the tactics described in the book One example is the stages of See Say Do to Drive Transformational Change  It chronicles the stages of “What Highly Effective Leaders “ See Say Do at each of four stagesStage 1 – EnvisionStage 2 – ExploreStage 3 InventStage 4 – Transform  If you’re a leader who has a proclivity toward positive thinking or if you’re a leader who struggles with negativity you will find this book to be an inspiration to springboard a transformation toward Asset Based Thinking for you and your staff  I was given a copy of this book

    Dr Kathryn D Cramer’s “Lead Positive” is based on the premise of Asset Based Thinking which is simply looking at yourself and your world through the lens of what’s working for you and your situation The book teaches us to look at possibilities rather than problems – a reframing of what most of us tend to naturally see I especially liked “Part 2 – What Highly Effective Leaders Say” which is filled with fabulous examples“Lead Positive” is well researched well documented and well indexed – three things that I sometimes fail to see in books that I want to keep for future reference as I certainly will this book It’s also easily and uickly read which is a real plus in today’s world I’ve already recommended the book to several friends; I’m anxious to see what they will think of the book

    Another self help book you know the drill It was different in a good way I mean that Ms Cramer wrote in a familiar and friendly way Experiences ideas and problem solving Kinda read like a novel Short little bursts of inspirations Not that I have a high powered job but I really like reading about other peoples experiences in the workplace and how it helps or doesn't It just made me feel like I could do better at my job and help me keep a positive outlook Yeah it was nice When you are having a bad day at work just flip it open to a page and I think you'll get a smile going

    As a administrator at a community college I believe that leadership is a skill set that must be taught and learned I believe that servant leadership is the most inspirational Dr Cramer uses a positive framework with new techniues to illustrate what highly effective leaders do While there were several great aspects of this book I found it hard to connect with some of the examples It doesn't speak to a diverse audience and puts highly effective leaders in a small box

    I actually ended up enjoying this book or finding it helpful than the last leadership book Now it's not exactly edited wellmany typos and a lot of prepositions to end sentences grammar police I think the exercises and examples presented were just relatable as a lot of it was about reacting or rather responding to situations and conversationcommunication I think I learned a lot from this bookWho is on your Mount Rush?
