Positive character strengths are something to lean into. Not ON. When you know your positive strengths, you can start to measure when you are putting yourself in a position to succeed; And positions which will require further study and complimentary team help.

Most personality tests focus on negative and neutral traits, but the VIA Survey focuses on your best qualities.
You can be an outwardly positive person, but not trustworthy. You can be trustworthy but not a positive person: having negative results when you express you negativity. When you trust your strengths you can also show appreciation for other’s strengths. We aren’t kicking the can down the road here, we are setting a chain reaction in place that builds you as you build your business!
