The VIA character strengths test can give you an insight into your key strengths

We believe that your greatest potential for growth and improvement comes from developing your strengths.

The VIA strengths test has been taken by over 1.3 million people worldwide and is available in 17 languages. It will provide a scientifically-validated overview of your key character strengths.

Just follow this link to the VIA website. You will need to register, but registration, the basic test and results are all free.

The free version of the report can be used during coaching sessions or other development initiatives, or simply as a tool to prompt your own reflection on your abilities and how you can be the best possible version of yourself.

The test takes about 40 minutes to complete, and while your confidentiality is protected, the data from your results will be used in the organisation's ongoing research.
