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 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 Fitness

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

    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

    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.

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 three-prong approach to improvement.

Treat the root-level cause of negative thought patterns, not the symptoms.

Provide a common operating system for personal and professional development to radically simplify coaching, training, and practice.
