Positive Psychology - a ground breaking study of what makes us feel good, function well and flourish. Pearson (2006) has remarked that Positive side of human nature has been of long – standing interest of both philosophers and psychologists, but it is only recently that the positive side of human behaviour has attracted serious and more widespread empirical study. We intend to familiarize with the Literature and professional associations’ findings and also understand the comprehensive perspectives of Positive Psychology with gender diversity as applied in the changing world of work. The subject matter here is of high intrinsic interest as the dynamics include an amalgamation of western and eastern Concepts of wellbeing. An effort is made to recognize and provide a basis for social change in education, work, families and societies in particular for they are the institutions where individuals assumes happiness lies in. The issues and questions addressed have been largely unexamined especially at the workplace, our material affluence is dramatically rising, measures of our psychological wellbeing are declining. The development of Positive Psychology is connected to the broader culture which it is a part, to the apparent paradox of this country. There needs to be progress in the rationalization of the workplace and the Management by tradition has to yield to Management by scientific observation and measurement. To be successful in other words, a Scientific Organizational Psychology needs to take the mental structure of the worker as seriously as it takes the Mechanics of work.
