VIA Character Strengths: Pathways to Engagement


This is a one-day workshop designed to help you gain a deeper understanding into how character strengths can play a key role in improving employee engagement. You will learn principles that are grounded in scientific research and have been shown to help employees find greater satisfaction in their work, enhance the company culture, and increase employee productivity. Research shows that employees who used four or more of their top character strengths at work had more positive work experiences and are more likely to experience their work “as a calling” than those employees who used less than four. Engaged employees are involved, enthusiastic and further their organization’s interests. This workshop uses the AAA (Aware-Align-Appreciate) Model as a framework to guide you through practical strategies on how employees can come to know their unique character strengths and use those strengths to make better progress on their goals and find greater fulfillment at work.

During this one-day workshop, participants will cover the following VIA content:

  • Engagement vs. Disengagement
  • What are Character Strengths?
  • The Science of Character Strengths
  • 24 Character Strengths
  • VIA Distinctions
  • Signature and Situational Strengths
