Mental Fitness Coaching Program

Respond to Difficult Challenges with Positive Mindset

Improve Performance, Engage in Healthy Relationships, Have Peace of Mind

Mental Fitness Coaching Program 

Positive Intelligence (PQ) is a synthesis of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science validated by over half a million participants in 50 countries.


PQ is a measure of the strength of positive mental muscles (Sage) versus negative ones (Saboteur).  

Saboteurs react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, or worry.

The Sage handles challenges through positive emotions like empathy, gratitude, curiosity, creativity, self-confidence, and calm, clear-headed, laser-focused action. 

The relative strength of the positive Sage versus the negative Saboteurs is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient).  

PQ is a measure of mental fitness. It's a predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. 

Research shows that PQ significantly increases with practice and habits. 

This program dramatically improves performance and productivity and helps you respond to challenging life situations with a calm, clear, and happier mind.  

Get at the root causes that undermine your desired outcomes! As a leadership coach, I understand why only 20% of people achieve their true potential. I’m collaborating with Shirzad Chamine—a Stanford University Lecturer and the author of Positive Intelligence. I am working with Shirzod and leveraging his work from a comprehensive 500K global research study to bring the power of mental fitness to my clients! Boosting your mental fitness requires building powerful new muscles in your brain, not just insight. I can show you how to significantly increase your overall happiness and productivity, starting in just six weeks!

8-Week MASTER YOUR MIND  Mental Fitness Coaching Program 

8-week Positive Intelligence® PQ training program

Positive Intelligence® (PQ), developed by New York Times author and Stanford lecturer Shirzad Charmine, is a measure of mental fitness. Mental fitness is a person’s capacity to respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset, and impacts peak performance, clarity of mind and wellness, and healthy relationships.


Breakthrough research with 500,000 participants has shown PQ to be the best predictor of how happy a person is and how well they perform relative to their potential.


The work of Shirzad is a synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science. It has resulted in a powerful six-week training method that I am licensed to provide to my clients. 

The PQ mental fitness program combines weekly video sessions and an exclusive App that guides you step-by-step over six weeks to boost the three core muscles of mental fitness.


The increased grey matter in the “Sage” region of the brain is visible in MRI imaging within eight weeks, and the experience is often described as life-changing. I combine the power of this program with eight weekly coach-led small group sessions to amplify your results.

Achieve Mental Fitness.

Boost Your Self-Command Muscle.

Learn innovative 10-second PQ Reps that boost your self-command, putting you in charge of running your mind rather than being run by your Saboteur-hijacked brain! Self-command is key to intercepting unhelpful mental habits and rewiring your brain to respond more effectively.

“What is new and life changing is the ‘mind control,’ the ability to ‘let go’ when any negative feelings take over. This program has given me the ability to be in the driver seat of my life.” — Nathalie Brys, General Counsel, Philips

Intercept the Judge Saboteur.

Intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. Discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a crucial source of your stress and significantly damaging to your performance.


Most participants discover their Judge is far more prevalent and damaging than suspected. Learn to rewire your negative neural pathways by redirecting the Judge response.

Intercept Your Accomplice Saboteurs.

Using results from your Saboteur Assessment, intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your Judge Saboteur. The list of suspects includes Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim. Expose your accomplice Saboteur’s hidden lies, limiting beliefs and negative patterns and discover how to quickly intercept this Saboteur before it hijacks you.

This is the best ‘training’ I’ve done in my 37 years here…I personally have experienced a new sense of energy, engagement and possibility both at work and at home — and I’m actually getting full nights of sleep.”

—  Gale Beckett, VP, Quality Assurance, P&G

Boost the Sage Powers.

The Sage region of the brain enables five primary powers. Analogous to the three primary colors, these five powers recombine to form all of the emotional intelligence competencies considered crucial to professional success.

Practice three techniques to activate each power and know when to use which power—the right tool at the right time.

Shift From Saboteur to Sage.

After weakening your Saboteurs, it’s time to strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Your Sage lives in an entirely different part of your brain, generates all your positive emotions, and achieves peak performance through a calm and clear mind. When you shift from Saboteur to Sage, you replace draining self-judgment with energizing self-acceptance and empathy and boost your speed of recovery from failures and setbacks.


“I am much calmer and have a greater sense of happiness than I have felt in years. I feel physically lighter, and my energy is higher. Sage is now present all of the time. I sleep better, eat better, exercise better.” — Sandi Sandiland, Head of Global Sales P&D, Amazon

Take Clear-Headed, Laser-Focused Action.

Discover how to use your Sage’s Navigate and Activate powers to take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action that is aligned with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. Use your Sage’s Activate power to act without fear or emotional distractions even in the midst of great crises, and discover your Sage’s deep wisdom that far surpasses your analytical intelligence. In this space, your Sage generates your highest performance while enjoying every step “in the zone.”

All my life I thought my high achievements were impossible without feeling constant stress. I’ve now learned to achieve even more with a calm and clear mind. I’m now enjoying every day, not just the final accomplishments.” — Sharon Pinedo, Head of Sales (Workplace), Facebook
