Help clients identify and develop their strengths and unique talents.
Enhance the client’s goal-setting and goal-striving abilities.
Build a sense of hope into the client’s perspective.
Cultivate the client’s sense of happiness and well-being.
Nurture a sense of gratitude in the client.
Help the client build and maintain healthy, positive relationships with others.
Encourage the client to maintain an optimistic outlook.
Help the client learn to savor every positive moment (Mentor Coach, n.d.; Peppercorn, 2014).
