Some feedback

  • Average effort put in (0 = no effort, 10 = max possible effort) = 5.4/10
  • Average impact on life (0 = none, 10 = a lot) = 5.7/10
  • Small sample, but seems to:
    • Increase strengths use and time using strengths
    • Increase happiness (from ‘mildly happy’ to ‘pretty happy’)
    • Increase present and future life satisfaction
    • Decrease depressed mood
    • No change in gratitude or grit?

Some feedback

  • “I found the strengths video amazing, even though most of us know we have these strengths they are often forgotten. Using the skills I learnt in the videos has strengthened my relationship with not only my partner, but also my children and friends”.
  • “I found the techniques excellent. I had a little difficulty staying on track, but got there in the end”.
  • “I thought they were good- what was interesting for me was that it made me focus on things I wouldn't normally. When your mind is full of positives you are less likely to focus on -ves. I learnt a lot!”
