The Positive Intelligence (PQ) program is a proven neuroscience-based approach to building mental fitness in individuals and across organizations. The program provides tools and training to cultivate a positive mindset that increases performance, engagement, wellbeing, and prevention and enables lasting change.

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 Positive Intelligence 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.

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.

  • Day 1_Boost Self-Command with Touch_cropped

How Positive Intelligence Works

hero 1b

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.
