Presentation: What Are Your Signature Strengths?

Signature strengths are the things we like doing and are good at.

We find more happiness and satisfaction in our life if it is aligned with our signature strengths.

  • Which of the 24 signature strengths are in your top 5 and how well do you use them?
  • Are there strengths you wish you had and wondered how you can develop them?
  • Do you recognise these strengths in others and encourage them to use them effectively?

From playfulness to optimism, and, bravery to love of learning and finding awe and wonder in the beauty around us, these strengths impact on our everyday lives.

If you want to find out what your highest strengths are, visit the University of Pennsylvania and take the VIA Character Strengths questionnaire

Bring your results along to the workshop (I will have some paper based versions available on the day too).

This workshop is based on the work of Martin Seligman (author of Authentic Happiness and Flourish) and others involved in the developing science of Applied Positive Psychology and will be of interest for personal development and working with others.
