People are saying:
I met Dr. Drønnen when we both were keynote speakers at a world summit in positive psychology in Toronto, Canada. She is thorough, knowledgeable and skillful in her presentations and her written work. This book belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who works with leadership in organizations.
I recommend this book to leaders who desires to understand and motivate their employees and who wants to create workplaces with employees that are thriving and functioning optimal. Dr. Drønnen shows how leaders can use positive psychology techniques to achieve exactly this.
I met Dr. Drønnen at the International Conference in Positive Psychology in Canada in 2017, where I heard her presentation about positive psychology and its use for people and organizations and the influence on people's health. I appreciated her presentation very much. It is so important for leaders to know the psychological processes in the employees and how they are motivated and what makes them thrive at the workplace.
This book gives the readers an insightful and very important description of positive psychology at the workplace and shows the readers ways on how to enhance performance at an organizational perspective.
Leaders that implement positive psychology strategies can expect to achieve improvements in their workplaces’ productivity, engagement and importantly: enables the organization to attract the best talents in their field. We really need more knowledge and books like this to ensure our leaders are kept up to date on the latest research and practice in Workplace Wellbeing.
Dr. Drønnen's Ph.D. and experience with leadership and positive psychology is very relevant for the 21st century's workplaces.
Finally the book with practical implementations on how to use positive psychology on challenges at the workplace has arrived. Countless books have been written about leadership, cooperation and motivation, but firstly now there is a book that systematically and objectively uses methods and techniques from the psychological field of positive psychology in leadership. The book is a real showdown with the old-fashioned and authoritarian mindset that is the leadership legacy from older leadership theories. The book is filled with examples that gives inspiration and use for both leaders, employees and union leaders.
"PowerUP, a book bought by chance, and read to pass the time on a train ride, was never put on the bookshelf at home. This is because I always have it on hand. The book bears its title rightly, it gives Power. Here I get simple tools for both everyday challenges and heavier work tasks. It is written simply, but gives the reader great benefit".
"PowerUP is a good and easy-to-read book that has many easy-to-implement tools that are incredibly effective if you really take the time to follow it. I recommend reading the book once first, then test out the tools for a few weeks before reading it again. In this way you will see how much progress you have made".
"The book is absolutely fantastic and a book everyone should read. Thank you very much!"
"I have read this book now. It is absolutely incredibly good. Simply a Must read!"
"I have the book. It can be recommended :-)
"A very good book that I strongly recommend!"
"The message in the book PowerUP book is credible and inspires and motivates you to make positive changes".
"PowerUP! Is an exciting and easy to read book about how to reprogram your own thought pattern in order to achieve whatever you want in life-if you are up for the challenge!"
"The book PowerUP can be embraced everyone and is highly motivating for those who want to work on themselves. It has solid academic content, refers to research results and seemed well thought out, while it is easy to follow the thinking. MD shows that she has great professional insight and presents the material in an inspiring and easy-to-understand way. I have greatly enjoyed and benefited from the book and have used the content in several contexts, both privately and in a work context. It can really be recommended".
