Positive Organizations

The contemporary world poses increasingly complex challenges for organizations of all kinds, be they companies, cooperatives, trade associations, public institutes, schools or hospitals. Many successful experiences and scientific studies have shown that coping with crises and changes often calls for a profoundly different ontological perspective, which looks at organizations no longer as closed systems governed by traditional logics, but as evolving “bodies” that can adapt their needs, combining them with those of individuals and society. The new paradigm of Positive Organizations, inspired by the Science of Happiness, has proven effective in giving companies a future by generating positive impacts in a broader perspective. There is a solid literature, supported by data, evidence and field studies, which shows that this type of organization performs above expectations in all spheres:


ORGs+ are a cultural model that can make workplaces better and more antifragile over time, generating value and benefits for individuals and the system alike.

What sets us apart?

We have a broad view that looks to the future. Broad because we deal with the most diverse range of issues concerning organizational dynamics, the relationship between individuals and work and the skills that can increase well-being and, as a result, efficiency and productivity. We are future-oriented because, as a research and training institute, we work closely with groups and scholars engaged in the most up-to-date, innovative and visionary studies in the Positive Organizational Sciences.

Our approach

We like dealing with people directly, face to face, through action learning, experimentation, exchanges and participatory training. In this period, when in-person work is not always possible, we have adapted our methods to group videoconference sessions, where instructors alternate to ensure a variety of voices and approaches, with a mix of classroom lessons and practical—albeit virtual—exercises.

Our team

We are a multidisciplinary team with extensive professional skills in  personal and organizational development. We were among the first in Italy to have been trained and certified as experts in Positive Organization Science, and we have a passion for keeping abreast of the ever-changing scientific and methodological scenario.
