Positive Psychology Coaching
The PPC framework has four characteristics:
1. It focuses on opportunity rather than a problem.
2. It is approach-motivation based. Motivational research shows that it is more effective and sustainable to help people achieve what they want (approach motivation) rather than what they want to avoid (avoid motivation).
3. It focuses on growth. Neuroscience teaches us that people can increase their capacities for change with a growth mindset. A growth mindset is a belief that we can develop our abilities through intentional practices, which leads to a desire to learn and therefore a tendency to embrace challenges, persist in setbacks, and see effort as the path to success.
4. It focuses on a collaborative working alliance, i.e. a positive working relationship between a client and coach.

A strengths-based approach focuses on strengths as assets to build upon, rather than focusing on weaknesses as the main areas of development. It asserts that we cannot grow to be anything we like, but we can grow to be more of who we are. We each have natural talents and personality traits that are developable into strengths so that we can become shining examples of ourselves, which in turn, benefits the people around us and our circle of influence.
Strengths are our personality predispositions and natural talents, which are developed through deliberate practice or other life experiences into generalised aspects of our character and capabilities, and expressed through our positive thoughts, feelings and actions. In other words, strengths are something we are good at, enjoy doing, and aligned with who we are. When we are using our strengths, we feel energised, engaged and authentic. Research has found that people who use their strengths are happier, healthier, experience faster growth and development, more engaged in their work, feel more satisfied, confident and experience more meaning in their work.
