Health and Happiness in university – Crafting a strengths based life

prof. dr. L.E. van Zyl

Have you ever wanted to know what really makes you happy, how you can really be the BEST you that you can possibly be and how to really live up to your fullest potential?  The answer is relatively simple: In order to achieve and maintain lasting happiness and to be the best possible you that you can be, you need to identify, understand, employ and leverage those talents and abilities which you are naturally good at or what we like to call ‘your psychological strengths’.


The purpose of this workshop is to create a platform for you to not only identify and explore your unique signature strengths, but also aid you in developing a personal strategy for its application within your daily lives. Through an experiential journey we will introduce you to the theory of psychological strengths, help you to identify your own (and that of others), and to aid you in crafting your own personal strengths-based development strategy in order for you to grow and develop.

Health and Happiness at workplace - Job Crafting

dr. M. van Vuuren

In this workshop, we will do two things. First of all, we will explore the dynamics of job crafting (the reasons for it, and the ways in which they do it). Second, you will visualize your own responsibilities and/or work in order to explore the possibilities of crafting this. Note that this workshop does not promise you your dream job! Reality is way too stubborn for that. But we will look for ways of redesigning your tasks just a bit  in a realistic direction, leading to a (bit) more satisfying life.
