In these times of social distancing, your Character Strengths are superpowers that will connect you to the best parts of yourself and others. Immersive exercises will be led by Lisa Buksbaum, CEO & Founder, Soaringwords and special guest expert Dr. Ryan Niemiec, Education Dir. VIA Institute on Character. You’ll learn you how to strengths-spot in others; amplify your signature strengths; and create a SoaringSuperhero based on your strengths to donate to a hospitalized child.
Everyone has strengths, but often, it’s easy to discount our strengths when they are such an integral part of our lives, because we don’t notice them. Prior to the workshop, each participant will take a free, confidential online VIA Character Strengths Assessment and bring their individual report to the workshop. Participants will walk away feeling energized, in touch with their strengths, and excited to put them to good use. Participants will also be able to recognize the strengths of others and use this skill for better communication and teamwork in their personal and work lives.
This workshop features videos with Lisa Buksbaum and Dr. Ryan Niemec, Education Director of the VIA Institute. These videos will teach participants the art and science of Strength-Spotting in themselves and others, Strength-Alignment, and Strength-Deployment. These are all essential skills for thriving in personal and professional situations.
The workshop culminates with a pro-social team-building activity where each participant makes a SoaringSuperhero® message and artwork based on his or her top strengths to donate to a hospitalized child. Each participant will receive a SOARING into Strength: Character Strengths workbook.
