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.Learn What Makes the VIA Survey Unique
Uncover what's strong, instead of what's wrong.
