The 8 session positive thinking training was provided for the experimental group. At each session, the experimental group was given the opportunity to discuss successes and failures in the implementation of the assignments. Both groups were evaluated in three stages: pre-test, post-test and follow-up. ANCOVA was used for data analysis.
 
Results
The ANCOVA’s results showed that positive thinking training increased  both professional ethics and job satisfaction of employees.
 
Discussion
According to the findings, positive thinking training was effective in increasing the professional ethics and job satisfaction of employees. Professional ethics has a significant effect on the activities and outcomes of the organization. Professional ethics increases productivity, and improves communication. Therefore, in such conditions, the organization can expect to improve job satisfaction, because job satisfaction is a psychological factor that provides the person with emotional adjustment to the job and work conditions. According to the results of this study, it is recommended that managers should pay particular attention to the positive thinking training so that professional ethics and job satisfaction in the organizational environment could be realized.
