Positive Intelligence Mental Fitness Program
When you’re not mentally fit, you feel mental stress — anxiety, frustration, or unhappiness — as you handle work and relationship challenges. The bad news is that 80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness.
The great news? With recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and technology, you can now improve your mental fitness significantly within 6 weeks of practice.
positive intelligence mental fitness program
The PQ Program is a mental fitness program that enables wellness, performance, and positive relationships. The seven-week program empowers you to create sustained change toward a more positive mind by laying down neural pathways to form new habits through consistent daily practice.
The PQ operating system provides the opportunity to identify and decrease negative thoughts, what we call Saboteurs, and work to increase positive thoughts, what we call Sage. You will complete a Saboteur assessment as you begin the PQ Program to help identify your top Saboteurs.
You will be guided through the seven-week program where you experience daily practice, a weekly focus, the PQ gym, and community. You can access the content using the PQ app and measure your progress. The PQ Program also includes a Pod facilitated by myself weekly. We meet for a 90 minute session on a Monday at a time convenient to everyone who signs up.
Build powerful habits for a positive mind. During the PQ Program, you get to build a foundation of mental fitness by strengthening three critical mental muscles to shift the balance of power from your inner Saboteurs to your inner Sage. With lifelong applications to work and life, the opportunity is yours to continue to grow.
EXPERIENCE A dramatic improvement in performance and happiness, in both work and personal life.

- PQ app – available on Apple and Android, as well as a desktop version
- Focus – weekly hour-long videos and daily 15-minute app-guided exercises

build powerful habits for a positive mind
Most attempts at positive change fail because we
stop at insight and don’t build habits. Sustained
change towards a more positive mind requires
laying down neural pathways to form new habits
through consistent daily practice. And that’s
what our program design empowers you to do.
Imagine yourself able to remain calm, clear headed, stress-free, and positive even in the midst of handling work and life’s greatest challenges. What becomes possible for you, in achievement, peace of mind and wellness, and in your relationships?

MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
NEXT ROUND: Program starts weekly. Choose your preferred date and lets get started!
15 minutes/day of app-guided practice enables you to establish mental muscles (neural pathways). These exercises are
bite-sized to fit your busy schedule and customized based on how you self-sabotage.
Weekly hour-long video delivers deep experiential exploration of the week’s focus. You’ll feel inspired and energized to
practice during the week in order to sustain the benefits experienced during the video sessions.
You’ll feel motivated through instant feedback on exactly how much progress you’re making towards building the 3 core
muscles of mental fitness. Brain rewiring may be visible in MRI imaging within 8 weeks.
We help you establish a support and accountability group with other program participants. Research has shown this to
be a critical success factor for establishing lasting new positive habits of the mind.
6-Week Foundation: You get to build a foundation of mental fitness by strengthening three critical mental muscles to shift the balance of power from your inner Saboteurs (your negative
self) to your inner Sage (your positive self).
Week 1: Self-Command Muscle
Through a breakthrough process called PQ Reps, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. Each PQ Rep only takes 10 seconds and can be done with eyes open or closed. With each PQ Rep, you develop greater mastery over your own mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive region of your brain.
Week 2-3: Saboteur Interceptor Muscle
You get to intercept your top Saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your thoughts, feelings, and actions. In preparation for this practice, you get to expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your Saboteurs, so they can no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.
Week 4-6: Sage Muscle
You get to practice the Sage Perspective that every problem or challenge can be converted into a gift and opportunity. And you get to generate the gift through the 5 Sage Powers of Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate.
Is this the right program for me?
This is the right program for you if you are a) committed to improving your performance and effectiveness dramatically while reducing stress, b) looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick, and c) willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you.
Aren't negative emotions sometimes helpful?
Some people believe that negative emotions are helpful. For example, they think stress gives them their performance edge, or beating themselves or others up is helpful for continual improvement.
Feeling pain for a split second when your hand touches a hot stove is indeed useful, delivering an important alert. But your Saboteurs keep your hand on the hot stove, continuing to feel negative emotions which harm both performance and happiness.
In this program we learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert, and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm clarity, objectivity, and creativity to handle the challenge most effectively.
How much time and effort is required?
You’d be committing to watching a 1-hour video once per week and doing a combined total of 15
minutes per day of practice guided by the Positive Intelligence app exclusively designed for this
This might sound like a lot of time. In fact, cumulatively, it constitutes less than 2% of your awake
time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your Saboteurs are costing you far more
than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and
productivity this six-weeks investment will save for years to come.
How is this different from reading the book?
You’d never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You’ll be asked to read the first 8
chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video session guides you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools to your own personality and needs. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily work and life challenges.
Should we participate as team?
Even though the focus of the program is individual development, team leaders often call this experience the best team building experience they have ever had. Going through this program together significantly deepens trust, helps clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts since they’re mostly generated by Saboteurs, and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agenda’s.
