* Teams that focus on strengths every day have 12.5% greater productivity.
* Teams that receive strengths feedback have 8.9% greater profitability.

The key objectives :
To appreciate and understand ones own character strengths as a source of power and our own true human potential.
Our signature strengths are the path to increased positive emotions, the link to personal and professional engagement and are at the heart of building authentic relationships.

When we use our strengths positively at work, in our community or within our families they are the foundation of a life of purpose and bring meaning to who we are.

They are always at play when we have our greatest achievements and enable us to overcome adversity.

We also visit the shadow side of our strengths and how being mindful of this and utilising our strengths at optimum can support us to be at our best professionally and personally.

Further Insights into Character Strengths research through Positive Psychology:

The work of positive psychologists like Martin Seligman show that the happiest people are those that have discovered their unique strengths (such as persistence and honesty) and virtues (such as humanity or justice) and use those strengths and virtues for a purpose that is greater than their own personal goals.

Think about a time in your life when you were at your very best. What qualities enabled you to perform like that?

While there are numerous talents and strengths that humans can possess, Character Strengths and Virtues are ones that humanity universally values. When Martin Seligman and Chris Peterson sought to discover and classify commonly held strengths and virtues across cultures, they created a classification of core virtues that humans morally value no matter their cultural, racial, and religious differences.

Take the VIA Signature Strengths questionnaire to determine your top three signature strengths:
(Note: you will have to register on the website first to take the test. This is a short form that should take only a few minutes to complete).

Current research indicates that you are most likely to value a job, relationship, hobby or institution that aligns with your core signature strengths and allows you to regularly utilise them. In fact, research indicates that one of the best ways to boost your long-term happiness is to use your strengths in new ways and situations, rather than focusing on your weaknesses. This is well in keeping with the philosophy of positive psychology: to focus on the positive in your life, not the negative!
