A strengths-based approach places the strengths of educators at the center of the helping process.
Intrinsic Motivation & Educator Flourishing
Autonomy: I feel "choice-full" in my work, and my work is congruent with my values.
Relatedness (Belonging): I feel cared for and connected. I also feel that I matter to others; I bring something of value to others.
Competence: I feel effective and have a sense of mastery in my work.
