Core Strength # Developing Character Strengths and Living in Peace

Fiona Brennan in Conversation with Dr. Ryan Niemiec

“Character and personal force are the only investments that are worth anything.”

Walt Whitman

Ignite Your Positive Personality and Live In Peace

What would your life look like if you lived from your strengths and not your weaknesses?

Do you know what your top five signature strengths are?

International research teams from the world of positive psychology have now produced over five hundred scientific publications about the nature of character strengths.

Character is the part of your personality that other people tend to admire, it is also integral to your ability to thrive and build resilience.

Scientists have discovered 24 universal strengths that dwell within us all.

Every five seconds across the world someone takes the Values In Action – VIA Institute’s strengths test.

The six virtues of wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence are within you and are at the core of the 24 strengths.

It is time to nurture and maximise these qualities to help make the world a brighter place.

I am thrilled to have THE International expert in this area as my guest, Ryan M. Niemiec, PsyD, who is the author or co-author of nine books, an award-winning psychologist and a widely travelled international speaker. As Education Director of the global nonprofit, VIA Institute on Character, he’s a leading voice in the education, research, and practice of character strengths. He lives with his family, which includes three young and zestful children, near Cincinnati, Ohio.

In the interactive sixty-minute webcast we will help you to:


  • Identify your top five signature strengths from the 24 VIA Strengths test
  • Understand HOW to use your strengths to positively change your life and that of those around you
  • Learn about the most recent research into peace psychology*
  • Learn how to practically apply your strengths to improve your relationships, work and your community


Please make sure to take the VIA Character Strengths Test and bring a note of your five strengths to the live webcast on Weds 14th September

at 7.30 pm (GMT).

*Peace psychology does not just refer to ending the horrors and sufferings of war and violence but to the peace that you can create within yourself to help make the world a safer and more joyful place.

Unbelievably, peace has been almost entirely omitted in the field of positive psychology. Yet, the area of character strengths is ripe for research and applications across each of the many “levels of peace,” which include: relational peace, intragroup and intergroup peace and personal/inner peace.

N.B. Donations will go to support the non-profit Via Character Institute.
