[FREE] 100th Tool in the Positive Psychology Practitioner’s Toolkit!

Sailboat metaphor

Update January 2020: The sailboat metaphor discussed by Hugo in the video below has become our main coaching framework here at PositivePsychology.com.

This metaphor forms the backbone of our online masterclass series available here and, from the feedback we’ve heard, seems to be extremely helpful to practitioners and educators alike.

We are proud to announce the release of our 100th tool in the Positive Psychology Practitioner’s Toolkit! After introducing the toolkit about 4 years ago, we have continually updated it and have now created a total of 300+ tools. Many new tools have been planned for future updates, so we’ll continue to build our database and offer our users a premium selection of hands-on tools.

In order to celebrate this milestone, we would like to share the 100th tool with all visitors of PositivePsychology.com. This tool was developed to enhance the understanding of human complexity from a positive psychology perspective.

All the best,
