What Makes the PQ Program Different

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build habits. A positive mind requires laying down neural pathways through consistent daily practice. And that’s what the PQ Program does.

  • Focus on Positive Habit Formation

    The PQ Program’s three-prong approach focuses on building neural pathways that form lasting positive habits.

  • Treat Root Cause, Not Symptoms

    Positive Intelligence’s factor analysis research reveals the foundational root-level enablers and disablers of optimal performance and wellbeing.

  • Develop All Three Core Muscles

    In the PQ Program, you’ll develop your Saboteur Interceptor, Self-Command, and Sage muscles.

  • One Operating System, Many Applications

    The PQ Program provides an operating system for your mind, with many work and life applications.

  • A Platform for Ongoing Growth

    After the initial seven-week foundation, the PQ App ensures continued growth.

  • Research-Based, Measurable Results

    Positive Intelligence’s research has included more than a million participants from around the globe.

You’ll be committing to watching one hour of video once per week. The weekly video sessions are divided into micro-learnings for you to watch when you have time.

You’ll also invest 15 minutes per day in practice guided by the PQ App.

Cumulatively, this constitutes less than 2% of your awake time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your negative thought patterns are costing you far more than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity.

You’d never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You’ll be asked to listen to the first eight chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video sessions guide you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily challenges.

The program is guided by a coach and also delivered through the PQ App. The weekly video sessions are divided into micro-learnings for you to watch when you have time. Videos are released each Saturday, and most people find the weekend is the most convenient time to watch.

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

The minimum requirements for the PQ App are a smartphone or device capable or running iOS 13.0 or Android 8.1 onward. There is also a desktop version.

For any other questions, email Leily Zarian, Account Director.
