Beginning every project, program design, team meeting, volunteer onboarding, feedback process, article or speech by reviewing the associated strengths is a method known as taking an asset-based approach. When applied to social projects, this approach is referred to as Asset Based Community Development.
I once attended an introductory psychology lecture where the professor split the room into two. The left side of the room read a story about Jim, the right side read a story about Joe. Both were allowed to read their story only and then had to rate the character presented on a crude, subjective scale of 0-10 in terms of his ethical nature as a human being: 0 being the most unethical and 10 being the most ethical. While each story was longer than the ones below, I’ve found these abridged versions work with the same effect.
