Character Strengths and the Heart of Learning
Teachers’ motivation and energy are amplified when they name and explore their unique constellation of character strengths and learn how they can best leverage those strengths in practice. In this Workshop participants will identify their unique Character Strengths using a free online tool. They will then learn how to spot strengths in others including colleagues, students and parents. With this shifted perspective participants will maximize learning, collaboration and performance for all.
"The nature of relationships among the adults within a school has a greater influence on the character and quality of that school and on student accomplishment than anything else." Roland Barth
