Why VIA Character Strengths?

Character strengths are a scientifically-validated pathway to help individuals improve their lives, work and relationships. The free VIA Survey, translated into over 40 languages, is the premier tool in the field of positive psychology that assesses an individual's character strengths. When you know your clients' or employees' strengths, you can guide them more effectively and authentically.

It’s through your pro site that you can easily manage everyone’s survey results in one central place, free of charge. For a deeper dive, you can also purchase in-depth character strengths profile reports in bulk–at a discount–for your clients, employees or students.
