Inspirational Moment

We recently completed a Discover You™ training and received this lovely image and message from a participant:


So this happened today. I remember the day my boss asked me to complete this training. I had to commit to 2 days a week – 2 hours a day for 6-8 weeks. During that time I was transitioning in my own life. So while learning this I was able to take a step back and focus on how to do a few things differently while navigating what it meant to be living alone for the first time in my life. I met a lady there that I think we will become good friends as I figure out how to get more involved with this program.

Thank you.”

VIA Character Strengths


The VIA Institute on Character identifies 24 character strengths that make up what’s best about our personality. Everyone possesses all 24 character strengths in different degrees, so each person has a truly unique character strengths profile. Each character strength falls under one of these six broad virtue categories, which are universal across cultures and nations.

Social and Emotional Learning in Real-time

Sitting in the oral surgeon’s office for my son’s wisdom teeth extraction I have many examples of my social and emotional learning. First, I am very self-aware of anxiety and concern for him, first time in sedation, the procedure, the recovery, and standard mom emotion. Self-management is helpful as I calm myself with some deep breathes and give him information and make jokes (had to sign that we would not sell the pain medicine being issued, darn, that was our spring break fund). Because I know him (social awareness), I know asking him ten times if he is okay does not help. It helps me, (self-awareness and self-management), but irritates him (social awareness). We have a fun and understanding relationship so humor, information, and details help us both. And although he did not see the point of getting his wisdom teeth out we were able to make this responsible decision together.


Social and emotional learning is happening all the time. We are likely using SEL skills regularly without even realizing it. Some skills come naturally and others we need to practice and plan for. Yet, SEL is not a new concept, it is a way of being with ourselves and relating to others. In a recent webinar poll 47% of participants were moderately aware of SEL yet by the end of the session 100% of participants acknowledged they use SEL skills already and more often than they realized.


Take a moment and pause, consider, how am I self-aware, managing self, socially aware, skillful in relationships, and making responsible decisions…? See, you too are socially and emotionally learning in real time.
