‘You can tell the people who use their strengths.’
Kristen Truempy created a full day strengths seminar which was held at a coaching institute for German speaking coaches. The seminar was a mixture of input lectures, group work and reflected writing exercises all designed to provide the participants with a theoretical and practical knowledge of character strengths theory and how it relates to real life in different domains.
The VIA strengths survey, management of strengths, overcoming challenges using strengths and basic knowledge on how habits can be changed were covered in order to equip the participants with the necessary knowledge to identify strengths in themselves and others and to harness them for positive change. The course was accompanied by a custom made workbook that the participants used throughout the day.
The course received very good feedback from the participants. One participant was very grateful for the fact that even her therapy dog’s strengths had been brought to light and celebrated during the course (unfortunately he was unavailable for feedback).
