A set of 24 graphite pencils and an illustrated guide to understanding and using the VIA Character Strengths model for personal development. This model is central to the positive Psychology movement and the work of Martin Seligman.
The leaflet includes ideas on how to put strengths into action that can be used individually or with a group. The model is described in the leaflet in full and a link included to a free and very robust questionnaire to discover your own character strengths. The categories are based on the work of the VIA (Values in Action) Institute, which represents the most significant effort in history to review, assemble, research and classify the best qualities in human beings.
Each pencil features one of the 24 strengths and a thoughtful reminder or words of inspiration, such as ‘Love – Speaks All Languages’, ‘Perspective – We See What We Look For’ and ‘Leadership – It’s About Passion Not Position’.
