VIA Character Strengths

Leveraging character strengths boosts performance, naturally

Research shows that when we apply our character strengths we perform better, experience more positive emotions, and are more successful.

The VIA Survey identifies our character strengths.

The VIA Inventory of Strengths, known as the " VIA Survey", is an assessment of 24 positive personality characteristics. Its primary focus is to highlight what is "right" about people. It turns out that leveraging our character strengths both feels good and enhances our performance.

What are character strengths?

Character strengths can be defined as the better parts of who we are as humans, those parts of our personality that positively impact how we think, feel, and behave in our private life and at work.

How does the VIA Survey work?

A psychometric tool, the VIA Survey measures and ranks the 24 character strengths from highest to lowest. It's available on-line as a free questionnaire.

Why the VIA Survey?

The 24 character strengths are universal. Applying to everyone, there are many areas of opportunity for individuals, leaders, and organizations:

○ Self-Awareness & Self-Management

○ Social Awareness & Relationship Management

○ Team-building

○ Diversity & Inclusion

○ Well-being

○ Engagement & Performance

○ Leadership
