The second pillar of Positive Psychology focuses on how we
use our most natural strengths to achieve our greatest and
most gratifying successes in life. Most people focus their
life on simply building skills to accomplish their jobs. The
best leaders know this approach is incomplete. They focus instead
on bringing out their top strengths, developing them, and maximizing
their use in support of the outcomes they are determined to
achieve. Then these leaders turn to skill building to complement
their natural power. They start with strength, and then add
Level II Program: ADAPT Strengths Model™
of Leadership Development
The Level II Program takes leaders through the ADAPT Strengths Model™
of Leadership Development. The intention of this program is
to help leaders become more aware of their strengths, develop
them, apply them to their work, partner with others to amplify
their strengths, work around their lesser strengths, and then
implement this same methodology with the teams they lead.
Level II blends scientific research with practical experience,
hands-on exercises, and engaging and memorable lessons. Level
II also includes one personal coaching session during or immediately
following the program.

Level II Program: Positive Psychology Momentum Development
You experience Momentum when opportunities related to your
passion in life appear faster than you could have imagined.
You catch yourself saying, “This is the most fun I’ve
The challenge is how do you keep this momentum and live your
best possible life.
Many people cannot handle Momentum. They are wildly excited
about the new abundance in their life, but are afraid of
this new level of performance. They feel as if they are on
a wonderful amusement park ride, but they are overwhelmed
with an urge to jump off before it does something
they are not expecting. Before they know it,
they've hopped off the ride in order
to return to solid, familiar ground.
Most of the time they are not even aware that they chose
to leave the ride. They just wake up months or years later
saying, “What happened? I was on such a roll.” Most
of us have experienced this at some point in our lives.
The good news is that for that small percentage of people
who truly want to live their best possible life, maintaining
momentum is possible. The power of positive momentum allows
you to achieve your goals more efficiently, in less time, with
less effort, and without negative stress. You are challenged,
but not stressed. You have people and processes set up around
you to help keep you securely on the great ride you are on.
When you have the right support and focus, momentum will carry
you to achieve your dreams.
Leaders go through “THE KEY TEST™” of Momentum
Model during this program. They learn more about the components
of momentum building and maintenance, their momentum level
at work is assessed, and they go through personal exercises
to build their momentum plan. Positive Psychology research
underpins the power of this program.

12 Month Follow-Up Programs
Leaders know that effective self-development continues after
a workshop ends.
We must commit to the follow-up of a program in order to achieve
the behavior change we seek. The question is do we go it alone,
or do we partner with someone to help us successfully navigate
our new path? Most world class professionals seek additional
coaching and support. They do not go it alone.
We provide both coaching and commitment support through our
12 month follow-up development and accountability programs.
Each program has three participation options:
- Group Accountability and Development conference calls,
comprised of leaders from numerous organizations.
- Same Company and/or Same Team conference calls.
- Individual Calls with a Momentum Project Coach.
Positive Psychology Applications Follow-Up Program
The research continues to pour in about the importance of
increasing positive emotion in our lives, engaging our strengths,
and discovering meaning in our work. The twelve-month follow
up program is designed to help people deepen their knowledge
of Positive Psychology and its tested applications in business
and in life. The focus is on helping people apply cutting-edge
research to their lives in business and at home.
Strengths-Based Development Follow-Up Program
Each month we provide a Positive Psychology-based Strengths
Development learning module for leaders in business. Each module
includes a powerful exercise focused on helping leaders further
develop and apply their strengths in their career. The target
of each module alternates monthly between self-development
leadership exercises, and team-based applications of strengths-based
Momentum Development Follow-Up Program
We also run the monthly Positive Psychology Momentum Development
follow-up program. Each module helps leaders further build
and sustain their momentum. The focus of each module deepens

KEY TEST™” of Momentum Model.
