POWER UP: Strengthening Your Strengths

Do you know someone who feels depleted from the pace of daily life? Or someone curious about amping up their work or relationships? Is that person you?

POWER UP: Strengthening Your Strengths is a 1.5-hour character strengths debrief session tailored to help you tune into your unique blend of character strengths. You’ll explore the question: How can my strengths empower me to meet challenges or lead a more robust life?

Move in a new direction! Character strengths are inherently part of being human, 24 positive traits like curiosity and teamwork, scientifically shown to be pathways to human flourishing. We all have them. Many of us are familiar with them but don’t fully understand how they can enliven us, help us emerge from challenges stronger, and build our capacity for new endeavors.


Whether you’re facing a challenge or an opportunity, your character strengths can strengthen your capacity to meet life with energy and enthusiasm. Everyone can strengthen their strengths – the exhausted business professional, the college student finding his way, the person transitioning into a new role or life situation. Even people already familiar with their character strengths find new facets of themselves in this strengths-based session.


Some strengths assessments zero in on what you do well in work or life. Others hone in on talents you have. In POWER UP: Strengthening Your Strengths, you’ll tap into 24 positive traits that help define who you are and what you do when at your best, joining over 7 million others on a similar path.

You’ll work 1:1 with me, Jane S. Anderson, author of 30 Days of Character Strengths: A Guided Practice to Ignite Your Best and seasoned strengths practitioner. You can see me in action here, as I lead a debrief session with Rebecca Sparks, founder of The Daily Guru, a platform dedicated to the education and empowerment of women seeking more from life.

Your session will be tailored to your experiences, interests, and profile of strengths. During the session, you will:

  • Experience the difference between fixing weaknesses and building strengths
  • Become familiar with the science of character including what character strengths are, how they’re different from other types of strengths, and why they matter
  • Discover new insights about who you are, how you operate when at your best, and how to express your most authentic self more often, even when under stress
  • Understand how overusing and underusing your strengths can cause unintended negative consequences in relationships, and what to do about it
  • Decide how to take your strengths practice forward


Some of my clients describe living more fully into their strengths as “living out loud” or “living in the zone.” Even those who feel attuned to their strengths come away from this session with new insights about their best, most authentic qualities, how to deploy them intentionally, and which strengths help them feel happy and successful. For instance, a client who recently completed POWER UP: Strengthening Your Strengths noticed that:

For years I’ve viewed myself as being too driven for my own good, depleting myself while striving for more and better. It didn’t occur to me that I was overusing my #1 strength appreciation of beauty and excellence. I can now appreciate the high level of excellence I bring to work and focus more on being fair and kind to myself, not putting so much pressure on myself.
