Introduction by Dara Feldman, Co-Founder of Virtues Matter
The Five Strategies of The Virtues ProjectTM inspire individuals to live more authentic, joyful lives, families to raise children of compassion and integrity, educators to create safe, caring and high performing learning communities, and leaders to inspire excellence, ethics, and appreciation in the workplace.
Strategy 1: Speak the Language of the Virtues
Language has the power to inspire or to discourage. Using virtues to acknowledge, guide, correct and thank awakens the best within us.
What are your strength virtues? What are your growth virtues?
Strategy 2: Recognize Teachable Moments
Recognizing the virtues needed in daily challenges helps us to become lifelong learners open to the lessons of character.
What lessons are you learning at this time in your life?
Strategy 3: Set Clear Boundaries
Boundaries based on respect and restorative justice create a climate of peace, cooperation and safety in our homes, schools and communities.
What boundaries do you have? What boundaries do you need?
Strategy 4: Honor the Spirit
We sustain our vision and purpose by integrating virtues into our activities, surroundings, celebrations and the arts.
How do you honor your personal spirit and the spirit of your group?
Strategy 5: Offer Companioning
Being deeply present and listening with compassionate curiosity guides others to find clarity and to create their own solutions.
How well do you listen to yourself and to others? What really needs to be heard?
