The Strengths Cards can be used to work with individuals or teams to enhance their performance.
Some simplify character as “grit” or “self-control,” we know that character is more than simply individual achievement or a person’s behavior. It is a broad and complex family of thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Character is the sum total of who we are; it’s our unique DNA; who we are at our best.
The set comprises twenty-four specific strengths represented on double sided printed card, with beautiful, glossy photographs on one side and Character Strengths by Christopher Peterson & Martin E. Seligman on the other. Peterson and Seligman conducted systematic classification and measurement of widely valued positive traits. They approached good character in terms of separate strengths-authenticity, persistence, kindness, gratitude, hope, humour, and so on; each of which exists in degrees. The cards come in a protective plastic wallet.
