In the last decade, we have witnessed an increased prominence of the positive organizational studies (POS) movement. POS is a research stream focusing on the betterment of organizations via the use of its strengths - instead of accentuating the removal of flaws. Through this positive lens, we follow four levels of analysis: (1) considering psychological capital as an attribute of positive individuals; (2) looking into the characteristics of positive interactions; (3) exploring the role of psychological safety in building positive teams; (4) defining the profile of positive organizations. Finally, we discuss that (1) positivity and negativity are part of the same duality, (2) positivity may facilitate negativity and (3) negativity may facilitate positivity.
