Positive Changes Consulting & Coaching

The Via Survey of Character Strengths has been taken by 8 MILLION PEOPLE! In nearly every country on earth!

The numbers continue to grow and add to the research. The more people who take it, the greater the evidence that the VIA Institute on Character is helping people around the world discover what connects us to the best of who we are: Our CHARACTER STRENGTHS.

“Character strengths are viewed as our positive personality in that they are our core capacities for thinking, feeling, and behaving in ways that can bring benefit to oneself and others. We express our character strengths universally across all domains – work, relationships, school, social, etc.”

I am proud to offer this online, scientifically validated survey of character strengths. It is based on work beginning in the year 2000 when scientists discovered that a common language of 24 character strengths make up what’s best about humans, what is the best about our personalities.

Everyone possesses all 24 character strengths in different degrees, so each person has a truly unique character profile. Each character strength falls under one of these six broad virtue categories, which are universal across cultures and nations. When you take the assessment you'll see the full list of 24 strengths in rank order for YOU

Research shows that knowing and applying our unique character strength profile increases our relationships, life satisfaction, workplace engagement and well-being.

The goal at the VIA Institute is to provide a simple and effective way for each of us to learn more about ourselves and our personalized pathways to happiness.

Developing your character strengths can have a significant impact on quality of your life as well as a positive effect on relationships, careers and personal growth.

VIA is committed to helping you through every step of your journey because ultimately, we believe that people who know their highest and best selves will contribute to a better society and humanity. Start your journey here; it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
