From the Back Cover:

Finding the best in people and inspiring them to focus on their strengths and live out their potential is one of the fundamental principles behind positive psychology. Written by respected researcher Robert Biswas—Diener and renowned coach Ben Dean-both established experts in positive psychology—Positive Psychology Coaching is an accessible new guide designed to help you learn how to put positive psychology into practice to motivate, manage, and empower others to set and meet their personal goals, and to live happier, more meaningful lives.

This empirically based book draws on the science and relevant psychological research behind positive psychology and teaches you how to assess, develop, and utilize clients' individual character strengths. Part One presents a foundation of positive psychology coaching: the definition, cultivation, maintenance, and benefits of happiness. Part two covers an additional pillar of positive psychology-the development and use of character strengths and virtues. Finally, Part Three applies positive psychology to the workplace, and discusses ways to use positive psychology to build your practice.

With the authors invaluable firsthand experiences informing the practical advice and wisdom within its pages, Positive Psychology Coaching is a visionary work that guides both he new and seasoned professional in helping clients lead happier, goal-oriented, and ultimately more fulfilling lives.
