Since last many decades, topic of leadership has been getting considerable attention. The multiple disciplines that have contributed to this subject and large number of models that have been put forth, have made this field full of disparate ideas. One can find multiple competing business models. Multiple researchers have worked to identify effective leaders and leadership styles. But still, there is no widely accepted theory of leadership. Having said that, one can still find some common elements such as - leadership is a social process. Leadership works for attainment of goals. Leadership is about being inspirational, transformational, being good and being compassionate. One of the powerful and recent models that are being talked about in current time is positive leadership. There have been multiple researches on effect of positive leadership behaviors and benefits. It has been widely accepted that positive leaders bring extraordinary results in organisations. Yet, in spite of these testimonials, there has been very less adaptation of this model in organisations. There can be multiple reasons for the same, but one major hindrance is that organisations have developed their own leadership model and adding more models has more resistance. There has been no research done on implementation of positive leadership models as strategic human resource management (SHRM) and there has been no strategic direction for implementation esp. in Indian context. Organisations would have very high resistance to adopt new and emerging concepts and this paper address possible issues. One of the common and contemporary leadership models that can be found in many organisations are based on competency based leadership. Companies have adopted competency-based models to generate and develop leaders. This paper tries to bring an implementation strategy of positive leadership by merging it in existing competency model. Kim Camerons model of positive leadership assessment tool has been used as reference point to explore idea of smooth merging of behaviours with competencies so that organisations can reap extraordinary results with positive leadership while keeping their existing SHRM on competency intact. This paper could be used by all individuals and organisations especially by those who believe that positive leadership fosters positive result and who practice competency based leadership style.
