Get Ready to 100X Your Impact As a Coach

I’m going to show you how we can go from self-sabotage to self-mastery by using a simple framework that will change your clients’ lives in just one coaching session while helping you attract and retain more clients than ever before!

If you’re skeptical, I don’t blame you. There’s usually a catch but in this case, I promise there is none. I used to sell this program for $1,000 but I decided it was more important to share the Positive Intelligence operating system as my gift to the coaching community.

Why? Because I am very concerned about the rise of hate, racism, and sexism around the world and realized that we as coaches hold an important key to healing and saving our planet. So, I made my flagship program free to coaches so more could take it. And since then, over 40,000 people have transformed their coaching businesses through this amazing program.

Will you help me change the world?

Please watch this video and follow the simple steps outlined below to confirm your enrollment in becoming a high-impact coach.

Thank you,

Coach Shirzad

Step 1

  • Check Your Inbox

    • Make sure to keep an eye on your email for the necessary next steps before the start of the PQ Coaching Grant Program.
    • If you have questions about your eligibility or the requirements, make sure to read our Frequently Asked Questions further down on this page.

Step 2

  • Meet Your Pod

    Research proves you’re 500% more likely to succeed in our program when you partner with others who can offer accountability and support. That’s why every participant in the Positive Intelligence Program will be placed into a support and accountability group, called a Pod. 

    Make sure to reach out and introduce yourself to them after we send you your Pod details as they play a critical role in helping you get the most out of this transformational program. 

Step 3

  • Download the App

    After you’re placed into a Pod, you’ll be instructed to download and register the Positive Intelligence App.

    Available for both iOS and Android, the app supports your daily mental fitness exercises, coach challenges, and journal. You’re also able to watch the weekly video sessions when they’re released each weekend.

Weekly Video Sessions

In these highly engaging sessions, Coach Shirzad guides you through experiential exercises that deepen and personalize your understanding of the mental fitness tools. You leave inspired and energized for the week’s daily practices.

Daily Practice

Each day a different focus for daily practice is assigned through a personalized app (iOS and Android) available exclusively to program participants. This builds one small muscle at a time, laying down new neural pathways to form lasting positive habits in your mind.

Interactive PQ Gym

Innovative 10-second PQ Reps build up your Self-Command muscle. You learn to be clear-headed and calm even in the midst of great challenges, able to command your mind to shift from Saboteur to Sage response.

Community Support

Join a support and accountability group with your fellow coaches and Coach Shirzad. Research has shown this to be a critical success factor for establishing lasting new positive habits of the mind.

Weekly Live Q&A

Coach Shirzad will hold a special 55-minute live Q&A each Tuesday where you can ask any questions about what you have learned. These are fun and interactive sessions and a great way to get to know your fellow coaches.

What to Expect

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.

Program Curriculum

January 20 – March 12, 2024

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

    Boost Your Self-Command Muscle

    Through a breakthrough process called PQ Reps, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. 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

    Intercept the Judge

    Intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. You discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a key source of your stress and quite damaging to your performance.

  • Week 3

    Weaken Accomplice Saboteurs

    Expose your accomplice Saboteur’s hidden lies, limiting beliefs and negative patterns, identified through the Saboteur Assessment. Rewire your negative neural pathways by redirecting this Saboteur’s response.

  • Week 4

    Introduce Sage Powers

    Learn the vital importance of unconditional self-love through the Sage Power of Empathize. Expose your Saboteurs’ fear of this power as you discover your unchanging essence and practice empathy.

  • Week 5

    Explore the Sage Perspective

    Strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Practice the Sage Perspective, that every problem can be converted into a gift and opportunity, and experience the Sage Powers of Explore and Innovate.

  • Week 6

    Sage in Action

    Experience the power of Sage Activate and take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action. Leaning into this power creates ease and flow in everything you do. 

  • Week 7

    100X Your Coaching Impact

    Tap into your Sage Navigate Power and decide what outcomes and results are important to you. Begin to leverage the 5 Sage Powers to deliver 10X the impact on any individual client. Then, discover how the unique PQ operating system can 10X your number of clients.


Any active, professional coach is eligible to receive the coaching grant to participate in the PQ Program. This could mean you are running your own coaching business, coaching as a side hustle, or currently in a coaching role as an employee within your company.

Besides being an active, professional coach, there’s an additional requirement should you choose to apply for the coaching grant.

You are required to participate in the program with your own support & accountability group, called a “Pod”. A Pod should consist of 3-5 professional coaches, including you.

Research proves you’re 500% more likely to succeed in our program when you partner with people who can offer accountability and support. Any coach you select for your Pod will need to meet the same eligibility requirements and complete the application too.

Please only apply once. Should you apply multiple times under different emails, all of your applications may be rejected.

While many of our students are Master Certified Coaches, we do not require you to have ICF certification to participate. As long as you are actively receiving compensation for your coaching services, you may apply for the coaching grant.

This is the right program for you if:

  • you want to dramatically increase the number of clients you can serve,
  • you want to dramatically increase the impact you have on each client,
  • you are looking for a science-based and trusted system to make results for your clients stick, and
  • you are willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you.

You are also required to fully commit to the program throughout its duration. Once the program kicks off, we expect those who are participating to make this a priority. That means setting aside a couple of hours each week for the lessons and exercises. Here’s what you can expect in terms of time commitment:

  • Weekly video sessions (1 hour)
  • Daily app-guided mental exercises (15 minutes)
  • Weekly check-in meetings with your accountability Pod group (30 minutes)
  • Weekly Q&A session with Coach Shirzad (optional, 55 minutes)

The program is is self-paced and delivered entirely through the Positive Intelligence app. The weekly video sessions are divided into bite-sized chunks for you to watch when you have the time.

Videos are released each Saturday and we most people find the weekend is the most convenient time to watch.

The only live component is the weekly check-in meeting with your accountability group, or “Pod”. This is typically around 30 minutes long and held in any group video app (e.g. Zoom, WhatApp or FaceTime).

There is also a live optional weekly Q&A session with Coach Shirzad which is held over Zoom to answer any questions you might have with the application of the material. All calls are recorded in case you cannot attend.

Weekly Q&As are scheduled for Tuesdays at 8am Pacific Time (11am Eastern Time). The Q&A is optional and all calls are recorded and shared within 48 hours.

The minimum number of Pod members is three, including yourself. And the maximum is five.

As your Pod meeting should be roughly 5 minutes/person any more than this makes the meetings too lengthy.

We want every coach to have the opportunity to participate. As soon as you apply for the coaching grant, we’ll provide you with links and emails that make it easy to invite others to join you.

If you don’t have people in your immediate professional network that can join you, most coaches report being able to find buddies through posting on LinkedIn or Facebook, especially in professional groups that you might be a member of.

The earlier you apply, the more opportunity you have to find your Pod members, so don’t delay!

Yes. If you have 3 or 4 approved coaches already, including yourself, you should go ahead and complete your Pod details by following the link in your approval email. Once your Pod is created, you’ll be able to add any missing members.

Once you form your Pod, you are guaranteed your spot in my PQ Coaching Grant program. So it’s worth doing as soon as you are able.

You should split your group into two or more Pods.

Every participant in the PQ Coaching Grant Program is able to communicate with the whole group using our unique Community features. So even if your group is split into multiple Pods, there’s nothing preventing you from staying in touch and checking in with each other over the program’s duration.

No, we do not offer Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units for the coaching grant program.

We do not include certification as part of the coaching grant program. However, if you wish to become a Certified Positive Intelligence Coach in the future, your participation in the coaching grant program counts towards the pre-requisites.

Your daily practice is delivered via the exclusive PQ app, where participants can access their daily mental fitness exercises, coach challenges, reflections, and their PQ metrics dashboard.

The minimum requirements for the PQ app are a smartphone or device capable or running iOS 12.0 or Android 6.0 onwards.
