Peak performance starts with Positive Intelligence

Work-related stress is at an all-time high for healthcare professionals — and the resulting burnout is causing an exodus from the profession. Work-related stress negatively impacts healthcare worker efficiency, quality of care, and overall quality of life. It affects the bottom line, too. The American Medical Association attributes nearly $1 billion in annual excess healthcare costs to physician turnover each year.

There’s no question that systemic changes are needed to reduce the burden on healthcare professionals in this post-pandemic world. But what can be done today to mitigate burnout and protect the wellbeing of healthcare professionals?

Welcome to Positive Intelligence, the leading mental fitness training program for the healthcare industry. The Positive Intelligence program is a proven neuroscience-based approach to mental fitness. It helps individuals and teams to intercept sabotaging thought patterns and generate a positive mindset. Positive Intelligence provides tools to help healthcare professionals and teams meet daily demands and improve wellbeing with applied mental fitness training.

Global Healthcare Professionals Face Critical Challenges

  • At least 25% of the global health workforce experiences anxiety, depression and burnout symptoms.1

  • 62% of U.S. physicians and 49% of European physicians are concerned about staffing shortages in their hospitals or clinics.2

  • One third of U.S. doctors and one fourth of European doctors have considered leaving the profession in the past year.3

  • Cross Icon

    63% of physicians are experiencing some sign of burnout. This increase is a marked jump up from 38% just one year earlier at the end of the first year of the pandemic.4

  • U.S. hospitals that implement burnout reduction programs report spending 30% less on burnout attributed turnover costs.4

    • Learn to apply the principles of a positive mindset across all areas of life to improve relationships, wellness, and performance.
    • Identify the root causes of resistance to change, resulting in sustained, positive change.
    • Invest a minimal amount of time each day; no need to miss work or deprioritize other commitments.
    • Use positive mindset practices to maximize the ROI of future training investments.
    • Share learnings with others at work and at home to help reinforce concepts. Family members have access to the app.

Positive Intelligence Is the Gateway to Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Discouraged healthcare professionals are vulnerable to adopting a negative mindset that actively sabotages their performance. Studies show that healthcare professionals with higher EQ are better able to moderate the impact of negative emotions, and as a result, are less vulnerable to burnout.

The Positive Intelligence program represents a breakthrough in the ability to raise 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.

    Burnout caused by long hours, excessive workloads, and inadequate breaks

  • Saboteur Origin

    Discouragement due to lack of support, absenteeism, and high turnover

  • Restless

    Decreased productivity due to high stress levels

The Neuroscience of Positive Intelligence

Positive Intelligence provides a neuroscience-based approach to mental fitness. Our factor analysis research has revealed the foundational root-level enablers and disablers of optimal performance and wellbeing.

The Staying Power of Positive Intelligence

Positive Intelligence is different from workshops, books, and other coaching programs that may inspire temporary, but not lasting change. While some of these resources and programs do provide short-term benefits, they don’t offer the depth and breadth of material, proven practices, and staying power to ensure organizational transformation. The Positive Intelligence program creates lasting change with its 3-prong approach to improvement:

  • Treat the root-level cause of negative thought patterns, not the symptoms.
  • Build mental muscles and establish a daily habit of mental fitness practice. 
  • Provide a common operating system for personal and professional development to radically simplify coaching, training, and practice.

How Positive Intelligence Works

Positive vs negative thoughts

Discover the Saboteurs that are hurting performance and wellbeing. Then build new positive neural pathways to stop them.

Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions and impact your the way you handle challenges. They represent automated patterns in your mind for how to think, feel, and respond. They cause all of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. They sabotage your performance, wellbeing, and relationships.

Saboteur Intro

The Three Muscles of Mental Finess

To conquer your Saboteurs, you need to build and exercise three mental muscles. 

  • Saboteur Interceptor Muscle


    If you’re in negative emotion for more than a few seconds, you’re in Saboteur mode. Label your thoughts and emotions in that moment as Saboteur and then let them go. Once you know your Saboteurs, you can begin to discredit their lies and limiting beliefs.

  • Self-Command Muscle

    Self-Command Muscle


    Performing 10-second PQ Reps is a powerful way to command your mind to quiet the region where your Saboteurs live. This activates the region where your Sage powers live. Every time you intercept your Saboteurs, do a few PQ Reps in order to pause and choose a Sage response.

  • Sage Muscle

    Sage Muscle


    Your Sage is the part of your brain that handles challenges with a clear and calm mind and positive emotions. It uses the five primary powers of Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate. Once you’ve activated your Sage brain through PQ Reps, you’ll have access to these powers.
