Draw On Your Strengths

Ways to find and explore your best qualities

Everyone has strengths. They may not be the things you expect them to be, or the things society tells us we should be aiming for, like superficial beauty or academic prowess. But social scientists have identified 24 universal forms of virtue, from curiosity and perspective, to gratitude and zest, that help shape each of our characters.

The thing about character strengths is that they're often easy to notice in others, but maddeningly hard to recognise in ourselves. Research confirms that when we learn to appreciate our own gifts, we're able to live life more generously, joyfully and authentically.

NOW, WE'RE ON A MISSION TO HELP YOU IDENTIFY YOURS.


We're launching a unique set of pencils featuring all 24 character strengths, designed to help you discover and draw on your best qualities.

For the next three weeks we'll be sharing a wealth of ideas and interviews to help you explore and celebrate your hidden capacities.

Watch an introduction here, take the VIA survey, and use #drawonyourstrengths to join in the conversation. We'd love to hear what you discover about yourself.
