|Discover Your Character Strengths...
Psychology researcher Alex Linely, Ph.D. describes character strengths as "things that we are good at and that give us energy when we are doing them. Using our strengths helps us perform at our best and deliver results."
The VIA Institute on Character groups character strengths into 6 areas:
Wisdom - Aquiring & using information creatively
Courage - Exercising will in spite of obstacles
Humanity - Befriending others; loving & being loved
Justice - Treating others fairly
Temperance - Exercising forgiveness & mercy
Transcendence - Showing gratitude, being thankful
No one has strengths in all of these areas. However, each person has strengths within these areas. To identify your personal character strengths, consider actions you are more intrinsically motivated to do.
In areas where you are not as strong, delegate to others who exhibit those strengths. Aside from personal growth and career success, you will find a greater sense of happiness in your life and work.
