Wellbeing for All - Positive Intelligence

What is Positive Intelligence?

 

PQ stands for Positive Intelligence Quotient. It measures your capacity to tame your negative, reactive thoughts and emotions and instead, use the calm, rational and positive part of your brain to deal with the challenges that life throws at you. A high “PQ” reflects a brain that is mentally fit and responds to life’s challenges with positive rather than negative mindset.

PQ has a solid scientific foundation built on Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology and Performance Science as well as breakthroughs in technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you were in full control of your mind, I bet you would choose to not stress out over what you can’t control, push away self-doubts, recover from disappointments immediately, and spend little time in anger, regret, or blame. Unfortunately, no one is in full control of their mind.

 

The good news though is that you can build powerful new muscles (scientifically known as neural pathways) in your brain, strengthening your positive mental muscles versus the negative. 

 

Saboteurs (scientifically known as the limbic part of your brain) react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, or worry. They are different for every person, so it’s important to identify yours, which is part of the PQ training.

 

Your Sage (scientifically known as the prefrontal cortex part of your brain) handles challenges through positive emotions like empathy, gratitude, curiosity, creativity, self-confidence, and calm, clear-headed, laser-focused action.

 

 

 

 

Through daily PQ training, with systematic and coaching support, over an extended time period you essentially rewire your brain!

 

What are the benefits of boosting my PQ?

 

PQ training is often described as lifechanging! 500,000 participants from 50 countries - including hundreds of CEOs and their executive teams, Stanford students and world class athletes - shared the following results:

 

  • Performance - You perform better while working less hard.

  • Happiness - You feel less stressed, more peace, and consistent happiness, even in tough times.

  • Relationships - You improve relationships, and are able to handle conflicts in ways that deepen trust and harmony.

 

Why does PQ training work?

 

Our bad habits live in our minds in the form of neural pathways, or mental muscles, that automatically generate our old responses. To make real impactful change in your life, you need to fight muscle with muscle! By having systematic support for daily repetition of a new way, for an extended period of time, you create neural pathways/mental muscles that form the new habits. In other words, new mental muscles to fight the old. With the PQ system you rewire the brain and within 6-8 weeks you'd be able to see the results in MRI imaging:  

 

  • Increased grey matter in the prefrontal cortex region of your brain, where your Sage lives.

  • Decreased grey matter in the limbic region of your brain, where your Saboteurs live.

 

 

What does the training entail?

 

Combining weekly video lessons, an exclusive app and coaching sessions, you are guided step-by-step over a six-week period to boost the three core muscles of mental fitness;

  • Saboteurs Interceptor Muscle

  • Sage Muscle

  • Self-Command Muscle

The app is the portal to the program contents. It contains:

 

  • The Modules - where the weekly one-hour course video is uploaded and stored. You have Saturday, Sunday and Monday to watch the video.

  • The Daily Focus – You do this every day on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. It includes:

    • A two-minute audio clip introduces the focus of the day.

    • Three two-minute guided PQ exercises are released throughout the day.

    • A journal exercise with short reflection questions is released at the end of the day.

  • The PQ Gym - containing PQ exercises of different lengths and with different focuses for anyone who wishes to do additional training.

  • Your Dashboard - to track your own progress.

  • The Community - a chat function for participants to share with each other.

  • The Audio Book - The first eight chapters of the accompanying book in audio book format.

 

In addition, once a week, you have a one-hour meeting in a group/private session with me (your PQ Coach) to share and support you in your learning and progress.

In summary, how much time will this take out of my busy week?

 

  • 1 hour weekly class video

  • 1 hour weekly group/private coaching session

  • 2 minute practice, 5 times/day = 10 minutes/day. For 4 days = 40 minutes/week

 

Weekly time investment total: 2 hours and 40 minutes for 6 weeks at your own pace.

 

You can also do additional training in the PQ Gym, and listen to the accompanying audio book, which is part of the app.

 

Are you ready for dramatically improved performance and productivity and a calm, clear and happier mind?
