One of the most powerful bodies of research to come out of the field of positive psychology, Strength Theory shifts the perspective from a “deficit model” to a “strength model.” As important as it is to work on our “areas of development,” we are now able to see that exponential gains can be made in engagement, productivity, creativity, and motivation when we are able to utilize our strengths and the strengths of others. This course introduces two important strength theories: the first of which focuses on character strengths, or our “way of being,” and the second of which focuses on strength talents, or our “way of doing.” Developing an understanding of your character and talent strengths will change the way you invest yourself as well as how you build the team that surrounds you; positively impacting your results, the resiliency of your team, and enhancing your ability to lead in a way that inspire admiration.
