We are all works in progress and we all have character strengths and values that we bring to the work we do and the life we live. This month you can learn more about your character strengths and how to leverage and develop them as the Essex Chapter takes part in the #CultivatingCharacter event that is happening around the world.
In order to get maximum value from the conversation, please take a few minutes to complete the FREE VIA Assessment from the VIA Institute on Character and be sure to bring your results with you.
We will be watching a quick video on character strengths and then sharing in some sure-to-be-engaging dialogue around strengths development and what it means for your business and life.
We are hosting this event to coincide with the 5th Annual Global Character Day (happening the next day).
Character Day is a free day-long global initiative where school districts, individual classrooms, companies, organizations, and families -- groups of all sizes -- screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into free printed discussion materials catered to different ages, and join an online global Q&A conversation featuring prominent leaders discussing the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)--all rooted in evidence-based research. Character Day is one day. The resources are available year-round. Feel free to watch the 1 minute trailer to learn more about Character Day.
