Why is the pole of RC circuit 1/RC instead of -1/RC?

In a RC circuit, we choose the voltage of capacitance as the output voltage. Then the transfer function is 1/(1+RCs). According to the definition of pole, let 1+RCs=0, then s=-1/(RC) Why I have seen so many times on text books that the pole is 1/RC? Thanks!
