Choose the next step on your journey

Your PQ Coaching Grant Program has come to an end. But this may only be the start of something new. We've created three paths for you to continue your journey toward 100x-ing your impact as a coach.

Watch the PQ Coach Q&A Replay

I was so happy to answer your questions during our extended live session earlier. It is always exciting to hear from coaches all over the world!

100X Your Impact

Our world is at a critical fork in the road. The darker side of humanity threatens not only democratic institutions but even the survival of our Mother Earth. The stakes have never been higher.

As coaches, we hold a key. Together we can awaken and unleash the untapped good in the world to affect the outcome. We need to do it with millions of people, so we can reach a tipping point. Scale matters.

That’s why I offered you my coaching grant program as a gift to 100X your impact as a coach.

To 10X your impact on each of your clients. And to 10X your client base.

The feedback from previous recipients of my coaching grant has been consistent:

“We love what we’ve learned and we want more. Both on coach skill building and on business development. And we want an option for certification.”

We created something special to respond to that feedback.

PQ Coach: Coaching Re-Invented

Every industry is reinventing itself. Yet coaching has not changed in the past twenty years. PQ Coach is coaching re-invented to meet the needs of our time.

As a PQ Coach, you will:

  • Supplement your existing coaching skills with research-based mental fitness training, backed by best-in-class technology.
  • Differentiate yourself as a coach that converts insight into lasting new habits through mental muscle building.
  • Have far greater impact on any client, massively expanding your client base, and pioneering the future of coaching.

PQ Coach is the culmination of direct feedback we received from coaches just like you who took advantage of our million-dollar grant.

We recently asked our members to share how it’s working for them. Hopefully, their words will inspire you to join them.

Your PQ Coach membership Includes

  • Foundational training in PQ Coaching skills

    Become an expert in the theory and application of our mental fitness operating system. Use this knowledge as the foundation of your differentiated coaching practice. Zero in on your clients’ needs faster with Saboteurs and accelerate their progress with Sage and Self-Command. Enable your clients to convert insights from your coaching sessions into lasting new mental habits through mental muscle building.

  • Business development training tailored specifically for coaches

    Turn your passion into a thriving, profitable business. Refine your niche, create a new business model that aligns with the world’s new possibilities, define your ideal customer and create an irresistible offer for them, generate raving fans and land massively more clients. For internal coaches, get special sessions on contextualizing the business development training for the workplace.

  • 5-seat PQ Program license and Coach Dashboard

    Guide your clients or prospects through the same flagship PQ Program that we offer at $995 per person on our website, up to 5 at a time. They’ll receive the same weekly training videos, daily app-guided exercises, and community support — and you’ll monitor their progress and offer support through your private Coach Dashboard. As your clients complete their program, they release their seat for you to use with your next batch of clients or prospects.

  • Weekly, live Q&A sessions

    Whether you have a question, want to dive deeper in the material, or simply want to be a fly on the wall to learn from others, you have the option to attend the weekly, live Q&A sessions with me. We record these so you can refer back to them at any time and provide interactive transcripts so you can jump straight to the part that’s most relevant to you.

  • Field-tested marketing materials

    You’ll get access to the same marketing assets that I used to book $25,000 keynote speeches and land massive corporate accounts. I’ll tell you exactly how I used these, why they were successful, then you can swipe one or all to grow your own coaching business.

  • New PQ application modules

    You’ll apply the PQ operating system to situations like stress management, team leadership, performance management, work/life balance, health and dieting, relationships, conflict resolution, parenting and many more. We’ll spend full sessions on each of these applications. You’ll know exactly how to apply PQ techniques to the areas that matter most to your clients.

  • Ongoing personal development

    I’ll keep guiding you towards more advanced levels of each of the 5 Sage Powers and the use of the 3 Gifts Technique so you can convert all obstacles into gifts and opportunities. We’ll also continue to work on your Saboteurs, as we spend an entire hour session on each of the Saboteurs and cover specific techniques to counter that Saboteur within yourself and your clients.

  • Private PQ Coach channel within the PQ community

    You’ll have daily access to me, my team, and your fellow PQ Coaches daily in a private PQ community channel for inspiration, for practical advice, for accountability, and sometimes just fun! Many have found the community to be critical to keeping their spirits up and their momentum strong in these otherwise challenging times.

  • Access to hundreds of coaches in your niche

    Join our Communities of Practice, where coaches gather to apply the PQ principles to their exact community and niche. Be a part of our communities for parents, youth, DEI, and many others. Learn best practices from fellow coaches on how to communicate PQ to your clients, prospects and communities.

FAQ

PQ Coach is a membership program that’s designed to earn your subscription for years to come. If ever you’re unsatisfied, you can cancel any time with no lock-in.

You must have an active membership to take advantage of the membership benefits — ongoing PQ and business development training, access to the included PQ Program seats for your clients or prospects, the weekly live Q&A, community access, etc.

Your PQ Coach membership will renew monthly or annually until you cancel — which is as simple as emailing my Support team. There’s absolutely no lock-in or minimum length of membership.

The most cost-effective way to join PQ Coach is with the annual option. With a savings of $200/year over the monthly subscription, it’s ideal for coaches that want to focus on growing their coaching practice without worrying about monthly fees.

Your membership is valid for a full year and will renew annually until you cancel.

As with any Positive Intelligence product, you can cancel any time within the first 30 days for a full refund — which is as simple as emailing my Support team.

Anyone that joins PQ Coach before Tuesday, September 20th at 11:59pm Pacific Time will receive a special complimentary digital copy of my book as a sign of my gratitude. The book will be delivered to you by email on Wednesday, September 21st.

All of the PQ Coach training sessions are delivered as online video lessons, just like the training you completed. We release new training videos weekly, but you’re free to watch them whenever you like. We’ll alert you every time new sessions are released.

We also include supplementary materials like worksheets, customizable slide decks, and sample marketing materials that you can use in your coaching business. These are all available in your dedicated Learning Hub so you can find everything in one place.

In addition to the online video lessons, you can also attend a live Q&A session that I host each week with Bill Carmody.

In addition to the online video lessons, you can also attend live weekly Q&A sessions that I host with Bill Carmody. Attendance is optional, but it allows our program members direct access to us should they get stuck in the material or have questions.

To accommodate the widest range of time zones, these calls will be held every Tuesday at 10am Pacific Time (1pm Eastern). If you are unable to attend for any reason, the calls are recorded and searchable transcripts are made available for your convenience.

Each part of PQ Coach is optional and entirely entirely up to you. You can pick and choose which lessons to watch and which sessions to attend.

If you want everything that we offer – the PQ Coaching lessons, business development lessons and live Q&A, you should set aside 3 hours per week and some extra time for implementation.

One important thing: don’t worry about falling behind.

Active members have unlimited access to this training. If life gets in the way and you don’t have time for some of the training, that’s no problem — you can pick it back up any time you want. You can catch up on missed sessions in any order you choose, and you’ll even have the recordings of all live Q&A.

We have intentionally designed this to be flexible to accommodate everyone’s different schedules and time availability.

Yes, the PQ Coach training program is approved by ICF for Continuing Coaching Education units. The first 6 months of advanced training qualifies each PQ Coach with up to 73 CCE units:

  • Core Competency: 32 hours
  • Resource Development: 41 hours

As long as you’re watching the videos in the Learning Hub, completing the worksheets, and participating in our Q&A sessions (live or recorded), you are eligible to receive the full 73 CCE units.

If you are renewing your ICF credentials, you’re required to earn 40 CCE units over a three year period. PQ Coach will deliver this for you in your first six months.

When you join PQ Coach, there are 5 seats for the PQ Program included with your membership.

Use your seats to add your clients and prospects into the PQ Program, either as individuals or part of a Pod. Each active client uses up one of your seats.

Your clients have the same full access to the weekly training videos, daily app-guided exercises, and community support as someone who purchases the program directly from our website.

And, as their PQ Coach, you have access to a private Coach Dashboard where you monitor their progress and offer support throughout the program. Communicate with your clients individually, or send messages to their own private Pod channel, encouraging them and coaching them through tougher moments.

At the end of six weeks, your clients complete their program. You can continue coaching them as an active client, or release their seats, ready for you to use with your next clients or prospects.

When guiding your clients through the PQ Program, you are in the driver’s seat for how to package, position, and charge for what’s next.

We want you to have a life-long relationship with your clients, so by default your client will remain active and continue receiving new app content, interactive modules and exercises. You will have access to our library of modules and can pick and choose which ones are best for each your clients. You can set your own pricing for this ongoing coaching.

The second option is to remove them from the program, which will discontinue the daily exercises and content. They will still have access to the app content and training sessions they already received, free for one full year. This releases their seat, ready for you to use with your next clients or prospects.

Ultimately, you are in control.

Many of our coaches like to have multiple clients enrolled into the PQ Program beyond the 5 seats included with their PQ Coach membership.

For each seat over the first 5, we charge you $20 per client seat per month.

You can have up to 25 active clients in the PQ Program at one time.

One of the biggest obstacles to getting started as a new coach is providing material to your clients. By providing the PQ Program to your prospects, we take that burden away. You’ll have access to a very powerful tool, great material, and a brand name to support you. You can get practice by offering the PQ Program to your friends and family, while also learning the business development lessons which will attract your future clients.

Becoming a Certified Positive Intelligence Coach is an option to help you grow your business. There is no additional cost for this certification.

Becoming a Certified Positive Intelligence Coach requires mastery of PQ knowledge, competencies and experience. Below are the certification requirements:

  • Completion of 29 Certification Sessions
  • 10 clients participate in app-guided PQ Program (5 for coaches who work with non-English speaking clients)
  • 1-2 page Personal Mental Fitness Practice Reflection
  • 1-2 page Client Experience Reflection
  • Coaching session video / audio submission
  • Articulate your Niche video submission
  • Serve as a feedback provider for 3 other PQ coaches

Certification is completely optional. While there are benefits to becoming certified, you do not need to be certified in order to introduce Positive Intelligence to your clients and prospects.

The PQ Coach training sessions required for certification are delivered through weekly videos over the course of 6 months. If you follow along with the training as it’s released each week and complete all other requirements, you will be eligible for certification in a little more than 6 months.

However, there is no time constraint for completion. We promise to deliver the training in 6 months. You can complete it at your own pace.

Absolutely not. We have powerful and inspiring sharing in our community every week from coaches representing every niche; ranging from working with kids and teens, to parents, couples, educators, NGOs, teams, spiritual seekers, etc.

The power of the PQ operating system is its universal applicability.

We have coaches from every major coaching school and some schools of counseling and therapy. Some had initial concerns about incompatibility. For example, CTI coaches wondering if there was incompatibility between Process Coaching encouraging the client to stay with “negative” emotions versus us urging them to move on. Or Family System Therapy encouraging the client to welcome and incorporate all parts of oneself, versus our treatment of the Saboteurs.

In every instance, we’ve been able to show that the differences are either a matter of semantics, or a matter of beginner versus advanced application of the PQ techniques. For example, advanced PQ techniques do involve staying with a “negative” emotion under some very specific guidelines and techniques.

To date, not a single PQ Coach has determined an incompatibility forcing them to choose. On the contrary, PQ Coaches learn how to use the PQ tools in a way that leverages their previous coach training to produce far greater results.

Yes! Whether you’re an external consultant, or an internal Learning & Development coach, you can take advantage of our specific and unique B2B (business-to-business) platform to introduce Positive Intelligence to organizations of more than 25 people.

We’ll partner with you to offer Pod Leader facilitation training, a dedicated customer success manager and our whole Support team to make sure that running a program with hundreds of participants is as seamless as a Pod of five.

Teams represent a major application of this work. Just picture this: You’re the pod leader, taking an entire team, including the team leader, through the app-guided PQ Program. What happens when you facilitate everyone sharing about their Judge one week, their top Saboteurs the next, and heart-warming childhood pictures the next? In our experience, a profound and permanent shift in team culture and effectiveness takes place. You can then continue to coach the entire team, or individual members, to help them apply their learnings to day-to-day challenges.

One powerful way to use the free seats for business development is to pilot the program with entire teams, groups, or family units as a pod, so they discover not only great individual learning, but a powerful collective shift. Shifting a team, organization, or family culture is where the shared PQ operating system delivers profound results that would just not be possible otherwise.

With the seats included with your membership, you can coach teams of up to 5 people. And for $20 per client per month you can add additional team members, up to a maximum of 25 active seats.

Still have a burning question that wasn’t addressed in the video or FAQs above? Please contact us to ask your questions.

We are excited to partner with you and to change the world together.
