WRK215H Identifying “Character Strengths” to Create Self-Awareness

[0–0, 0 cr.]

Discovering and understanding character strengths will have a great impact on people’s work and life. In 2004, psychologists Martin Seligman & Chris Peterson published key findings about Character Strengths, which are a constellation of character traits that make each human distinct or unique. Research reveals that people who know and use their character strengths every day are: more productive, 3 times more likely to report having an excellent quality of life, 6 times more likely to be engaged at work, and 15% less likely to quit their jobs. Workshop Objectives:

1. Participants will be introduced to their personal character strengths (through an assessment).
2. Participants will know how to use their character strengths for greater efficiencies.
3. Participants will know where they are special to help develop their self-esteem.
