Course ID - CTD0742i 

Short Title: Strengths & Virtues   

 Audience    All Employees 
Length of Workshop:        4 hours 

Across diverse cultures over time, similar virtues have been identified which are critical in developing character. Research suggests that optimal functioning depends more on building upon strengths than remediating weaknesses. Staff will have an opportunity to discover their signature strengths and apply approaches to improve these.

As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Identify their signature strengths and discover ways to enhance these
  •  Understand how other cultures build positive emotional states
  •  Recognize the need to balance justice with forgiveness in maintaining ongoing positive relationships in the workplace
  •  Utilize strategies to increase frustration tolerance and persistence in their pursuit of team and personal goals
