Created by Professor Ilona Boniwell

These cards are designed by leading positive psychology practitioner Professor Ilona Boniwell who describes them like this

'An essential resource for any practitioner of positive psychology, the Strengths Cards can be used in any coaching or training setting, in one-to-one or in group work. With innovative exercises suggested these Strengths Cards always leave participants excited and eager to learn more. Each and every one of the cards contains an innovative photo and the name of the strength on the front side as well as the questions that can be used to identify this strength, its descriptions and suggestions to both activate it and develop it further on the back. With 50 strengths in the pack, they cover the full scope of the current scientific knowledge about strengths, without being tied in to any one of the available (competing!) strengths inventories.'

Great product - not that great shipment

The cards are fantastic, we've actually been using them in the past and are very happy. The shipment to Poland though was a disaster, the tracking code I got was wrong and did not enable checking what's happening with the shipment. It also took a few days for the customer service team to respond to my inquiry about it. It took more than 3 weeks to deliver, during which we actually missed the training we wanted to use the cards at...

Sarah Setterfield
Fabulous materials!

These are great materials to support a strengths workshop. Thank you

Grainne Walsh coach

Thank you Sarah for such a simple yet effective tool. I�m so looking forward to using these in my next sessions. An original way of breaking the ice and getting through to executives, drawing out both their strengths and possible weak spots. Grateful for this tool and look forward to checking out more!
