The purpose of the study is to identify the problem areas in education management and the opportunities to apply positive management tools. The authors believe that it is possible to diminish the issues related to authoritarian education management by using the tools and principles of positive psychology, specifically, positive management connected to addressing the human factor. The authors note the inefficiency of strict and regulated methods of education management as it often requires unorthodox, original solutions. The article contains the results of the pilot study of education workers’ subjective perception of a positive management tool – engagement. The survey method has been utilized for the study. The analysis of the data has resulted in the following conclusions: 1) it has been found that the positive management tools identified through the analysis are insufficiently used in education management; 2) the identified problem areas in education management are related to expectations for work, satisfaction with the evaluation and feedback, interpersonal relations, as well as career and development.
