PERSONAL CHARACTER STRENGTHS COACHING

Description

Personal Character Strengths Coaching aims to help you reach a deeper understanding of yourself and to use that knowledge for optimal growth. You might be interested in boosting your happiness, managing a relationship conflict, setting up personal goals at work, handling a life stressor, or searching for deeper meaning in life. Character strengths knowledge, exploration, and use can play an important role in these types of personal development. This type of coaching is intended to be positive in focus, centered on you, empowering, energizing, and practical.

Two central elements of any coaching approach should involve character strengths (each person has 24 core strengths of character, centralized signature strengths, phasic strengths, and other types of strengths) and goal-setting (the coachee’s hopes, intentions, and specific life goals). This coaching bridges strengths, goals, and other key elements in the science of positive psychology to best help you.

It is common for your coach to incorporate discussion of one of your personalized reports in the coaching process.

PROFESSIONAL CHARACTER STRENGTHS COACHING

Description

Professional Character Strengths Coaching is intended to target, “you, the professional.” The focus is on leveraging character strengths to help you best serve your clients, students, or employees. This may involve case consultation in which the coach offers opinions and ideas regarding your work with a specific client (individual or group). It may involve question and answer in which you and your coach grapple with a variety of questions you have about applying character strengths (and other elements of positive psychology). Other common examples include discussing optimal character strengths interventions for a workshop or class you are planning to lead, being a strengths “sounding board” for a positive psychology consultation you are offering, or reviewing outlines and ideas of strengths projects you are working on. The goal is to help you not only understand optimal strengths applications but to enable you to thrive in doing so.
