Vital Signs of Well-Being™ is a program for prevention of and recovery from burnout. It is based on research in positive psychology, which looks at what works, my experience working with and coaching others, as well as my own experiences moving toward well-being.
This is a program which asks people to recall a time when they were at their best and also to think about people they admire. Through sharing stories about themselves and the person they admire, individuals connect with what is important to them and their own strengths. A list of valued characteristics representing the person’s Best Self is generated. This list can be used in a variety of ways to inspire the person to be their best. Here are a few ideas, it can provide focus on a few areas to develop, help define priorities, and be used to evaluate best fit at work and beyond.
Calling forth these strengths and values at work and home enhances daily satisfaction, increases success in areas of life that matter to the individual and help the person to compensate for weaknesses. Leading from one’s best self promotes a greater chance of success in all areas of life.
Tapping into the strengths and values of each other enhances engagement and promotes a supportive culture in which people can bring their best selves.
Each of us has many aspects within us. The Inner Captain program allows individuals to identify internal voices and perspectives, and choose the one which is wise, compassionate and courageous. Connecting with this part of one’s self promotes the use of best judgment and collaboration.
Inner Captains are unique to each individual. When each person on a team is using their inner captain, wise cooperative work toward a common goal can be achieved.
