Identifying and Using Personal Strengths

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This workshop is designed to help you (re)discover and apply your personal strengths in various ways, through a mixture of activities, conversations and reflection. Getting into the practice of doing intentional and effortful activities related to your personal strengths develops an awareness of wellbeing, positive qualities and natural talents, while also increasing a sense of community. Making a habit of these activities encourages sustainable happiness, balance and motivation.

BENEFITS
* Identifying and applying personal strengths
* Wellbeing and mood boost
* Enhanced motivation
* Self-confidence boost

BEFORE THE WORKSHOP
Find your signature strengths! Before attending the workshop, to identify your character strengths, take the online test available on the VIA website, which takes about 30 minutes. After taking the test, you will get the ranking of your 24 strengths. We will touch base on this during the workshop, so please print it out if you can and keep track of your top 4 strengths.

Note: Talent Courtyard is not affiliated with the VIA website, but doing the survey on their website allows you to access the survey easily and for free, plus it allows researchers to study further how character strengths work.

About the data collection: Filling out surveys on the VIA website are fully voluntary and your responses will be used anonymously in ongoing research by The VIA Institute on Character. More information regarding what information is collected, how it is used, and how it is shared can be found on the VIA’s Privacy Policy. Alternatively, if you do not feel comfortable sharing your details, you can read the descriptions of the 24 Character Strengths and self-identify your top strengths.
