Before You Begin

We will ask you, over the next two pages, to complete two assessments to help you discover and clarify some of your strengths and values. Even if you have taken these kind of assessments before we would really recommend that you take them again. At the very least it will affirm what you already know about your values, strengths and assessments. Or, it may bring up some new and very valuable information for you.

After taking the assessments in this unit you should have a page full of useful information about you - information that you can take forward to share with your team. Take time to share your interests, strengths and values, so that you can capitalize, build and learn from one another.

The VIA Survey of Character Strengths is a simple self-assessment that takes less than 15 minutes and provides a wealth of information to help you understand your core characteristics. Most personality tests focus on negative and neutral traits, but the VIA Survey focuses on your best qualities.

Created under the direction of Dr. Martin Seligman, the "father of Positive Psychology" and author of Authentic Happiness and Flourish, and Dr. Christopher Peterson, distinguished scientist at the University of Michigan and author of A Primer in Positive Psychology, and validated by Robert McGrath, Ph.D., the VIA Survey is regarded as a central tool of positive psychology and has been used in hundreds of research studies and taken by over 3 million people in over 190 countries resulting in better workplaces, schools, teams (Via Institute Website, 2017).
