When leaders need to be at the top of their game, yet seem to be missing the mark, Carol Kauffman relies on the VIA Survey. She gets to the heart of her client’s issue by taking a hard look at their top VIA strengths, often finding that they are in contrast to what the client is actually doing day to day. She probes the reasons the client is choosing not to use their strengths in a productive manner. Together, the two hammer out a strategy for positive change. The benefits of this direct approach is a ‘mirror’ effect where the client gains more awareness of what they do value and ideally want to happen, and how their current behavior may be hindering them. Carol has provided details for this application below.
