The 7-Week Mental Fitness Program

             So, why take the program?

    As a certified Life Coach, I have further trained to become a PQ  Coach and part of the Positive Intelligence® Program founded by Shirzad Chamine, author of the New York Times best-selling book, Positive Intelligence, and a Stanford lecturer. I  have completed their 7- week App program myself and found it so valuable that I have taken further training to be able to share this program with others. 

    Every single day you are actively sabotaging your effectiveness on performance, wellness, and relationships.  Only 20% of individuals and teams reach their full potential. Based on research, neuroscience, positive psychology, and performance science while using factor analysis, this program provides the understanding and tools to boost your mental fitness (Positive Intelligence Quotient known as PQ). It's the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. The program provides tools to create new neural pathways, to learn to become more resilient, and make lasting changes in how you face life's challenges 








    Here is what you'll find in the App

    Weekly Video Instruction   

    Independently, you watch a 1-hour weekly video (recommended you view it on the weekend or Monday). Each video contains an experiential exercise so you can experience the concepts more viscerally and personally and not just analytically.

    Daily Coach Challenges

    You spend 15 minutes/day on Tuesdays through Fridays doing Coach Challenges. There are three 2-minute guided audios spaced 3 hours apart. Taking a 2-minute break every few hours is critical as it allows you to stop and center yourself in a wiser part of your brain. Your Saboteurs will try to convince you otherwise, but you do have the time!

    The PQ Gym 

    Here you are provided guided PQ 2- 5- and 12-minute rep resiliency practices. The goal is to do 36 reps a day (1 minute = 3 reps). Many of the reps you also get from the coach challenges.

    The Positive Intelligence Book in Audio Format.

    Chapters 1 through 8 are available in the app in an audio format and a pdf version is also provided. Try to read 1-2 chapters a week.

    In Addition, Weekly Pod Meetings

    You are welcome to take the program individually with Marla or to join a pod that I lead. A pod would consist of yourself and 1-5 others participating in the program. We meet weekly for 7 weeks via a live Zoom call. The first session is 45 minutes and the others are 30 minutes in length. It is an opportunity to enhance your practice and learning and be supported by others. We also create a pod text group to share thoughts and check in as desired during the week. Research indicates a 500% increased likelihood of establishing positive new habits when supported by accountability partners.  

    Overview of the weekly topics:

    Week 1: Self-Command Muscle-

     Through PQ Reps, resiliency exercises ranging from 10 seconds to 12 minutes, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. You learn to quiet your Judge and activate the positive Sage region of your brain.

    Weeks 2-3: Saboteur Interceptor Muscle – You uncover your top Saboteurs by taking a free online assessment. You learn to expose the lies and limiting beliefs of your Saboteurs and intercept them when they attempt to hijack you. 

    Weeks 4–7:  Sage Muscle  You learn about the five Sage powers and the Sage perspective that any challenge or problem can be turned into a gift or opportunity. When in Sage, you can handle challenges with a clear and calm mind, positive emotions, and laser-focused action. All positive and healthy interpersonal skills and behaviors come from the Sage brain.

The operating system did a great job reminding me daily to perform the required steps, and helped ensure it built particular habits for the future.”
