Develop collaborative leaders, transcend organizational boundaries, and build bridges with the power of mental fitness training

Public sector employees have unique opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. They also face unique challenges. Limited resources, heavy workloads, multiple layers of oversight, and a constantly changing environment make it difficult to innovate. In today’s public sector, solving big problems means leading across organizational boundaries. Fostering a culture of collaborative leaders who can build bridges between organizations, including partners in the private sector, is critical to mission success.

Positive Intelligence helps build and support a culture of collaborative leaders. The PQ Program represents a breakthrough in the ability to raise Emotional Intelligence (EQ) across an organization. Our factor analysis research dramatically simplifies the process of building EQ by identifying the root-level building blocks of EQ. In the Positive Intelligence program, 17 out of 18 EQ competencies are automatically developed through intercepting negative thought patterns and activating the self-command center of the brain.

Strengthening these habit-forming muscles leads to lasting positive change for program participants*

The PQ Program harnesses EQ competencies to help government organizations:
