This workshop draws upon the foundations of Positive Psychology and Appreciative Inquiry. Positive psychology is the study of what makes life most worth living, by emphasizing the positive emotions, thought patterns, and relationships that contribute to human flourishing. Appreciative Inquiry asks questions about what we value and want more of in ourselves, in our relationships and in our communities. Join leading-edge practitioners and consultants to explore the theory and practice of this cutting edge approach to organizational change, professional and personal development. This workshop uses the VIA Survey to help you assess and appreciate your character strengths and explore how they can enrich your personal and professional life. When your strengths are acknowledged, you will feel more connected, enlivened and competent.
This workshop is approved by the International Coach Federation for 13 CCEU’s
This workshop fulfills an elective requirement for the CPC Appreciative Inquiry and Practice of Positive Change Certificate Program.
WANT US TO COME TO YOU?
This 3-hour seminar introduces participants to a dialogical process for the identification and cultivation of character strengths. Participants reflect, appreciate, and practice the cultivation of character strengths in their professional and personal lives. A strength-based assessment provides a useful a way to begin the reflective dialogue about strengths and relational resources (Reflect). The next step (Appreciate) involves telling the story of your strengths and insofar as we include the audience in the process, your narrative becomes a performed text, active and alive as you “put your experience into circulation”. Next, you will learn how to put your strengths into practice as you move forward with new projects and leadership goals (Practice).
