How do we interpret our characters strengths and in what way are they manifested in each of us? To what degree do we use them at work, at home and when we are with friends? When are they most noticeable, and how can we amplify them? Examine how different people use the same character strength in individual ways. Can we enhance our strengths by examining how others use it? What can we learn about our strengths from the way others use their strengths?
Unveil the answers to these questions and more as each player explores their personal character strengths through the positive eye of a friend, while progressing on the board to reach their positive self. Players will engage in in-depth investigation of one’s character strengths, spotting strengths in others and active reflection about the way these strengths are manifested at work and in the private lives of participants.
