About the event
Join us for this interactive class created by The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute. You can attend the single class or sign up for the whole six-week lecture series How Success Thinks.
LESSON 3: SIGNATURE STRENGTHS
Perfect people don't exist, and most individuals tend to excel in certain areas over others. Martin Seligman, and Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton argue that while it is important to develop and strengthen character weaknesses, to maximize the chances of success, goals should be approached from individual signature strengths.
This lesson explores these theories and also integrates the Jewish mystical tradition of sefirot to analyze the basic traits and patterns that form an individual's character and personality.
While definitions of success vary by society and culture, and from individual to individual, most people are driven to succeed: to perform well and accomplish their personal and professional goals.
Countless books, subject matter experts, seminars, and workshops promise to reveal the secret to success. The recent development of the Positive Psychology movement responds to the need for the empirical, scientific study of how to cultivate a satisfactory and fulfilling life, rather than focusing solely on mental illness.
How Success Thinks, a new six-week course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, draws on the findings of Positive Psychology and other social science research, as well as classic Jewish thought, to offer personal insights and strategies for success.
