SMARTER Coaching Services

Positive Coach Approach:

Designing an exciting and inspiring future should be Fun!

We provide coaching solutions using the framework of positive psychology.  Positive psychology coaching is  strengths-based with a focus on positive emotions. Positive psychology was first explored by Abraham Maslow in 1954 with an emphasis on humanity’s potential, and the coining of the phrase .In 1998, Martin Seligman recognized again that psychological research had focused mostly on human weaknesses.  Martin launched positive psychology into the mainstream, and he is known as the “grandfather of positive psychology”.  He has devoted his career to explore human potential, believing people are destined to be resourceful, creative, emotionally connected and motivated to evolve.
