David J. Pollay, AIESEC International Hall of Fame member and President of The Momentum Project, is leading the International Leadership Strengths Research Project in conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania. The mission of this research project is to help leaders become more aware of their strengths, and to encourage these leaders to fully develop their strengths in support of their goals. More than 1,000 leaders from nearly 100 countries are involved in this research project.
An analysis is being conducted to determine if leaders in an organization have a distinct strengths profile compared to others of a similar age and education. We are using the VIA Signature Strengths Survey to measure the strengths of leaders. Click here for an overview of the VIA Signature Strengths Survey.
Mr. Pollay presented the results of the first phase of this research at the International Positive Psychology Summit in Washington, D.C. in October, 2006. His paper was titled, "Strengths Profiles of Leaders in Organizations."
