Applying Strengths and Positive Psychology Research.
Lisa Jacobson holds a Master’s in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied under the movement’s founder, Martin Seligman. Her training is deeply seeded in strengths and positive psychology research. These findings indicate that when people apply their strengths in new and different ways, they create the greatest potential to flourish and excel. Emphasis is on the intersection of strengths and interests. Ample time is invested in revealing and understanding personality traits that are career indicators: character strengths, virtues, talent, intrinsic motivation, perseverance, curiosity and passions. These traits determine your best career path and options. The method is thorough, thoughtful, and creative. It’s not for everyone. It is for people who value careful, critical, and creative analysis.
