Are you – and your team – achieving your true potential?
We all know that few of us achieve as much as we could in life – whether at work or in our personal lives. That’s why we’re so often amazed by those who do.
It’s not because we’re stupid. It’s nothing to do with IQ. And it’s not really about EQ (emotional intelligence) either, although there’s certainly a link. No, it’s about PQ – positive intelligence. We all have the potential for high achievement but we self-sabotage. We let our inner voices and bad habits, our ‘saboteurs’, hold us back. We don’t exercise enough self-command over them. We actually suppress positive thoughts and emotions.
And this has an impact on the people around as well. It’s why many teams and entire organisations struggle to perform as well as they could.
A full 80% of us score lower on mental fitness than we need to if we are to reach peak performance. (You can find out your PQ score, for free, in just two minutes, here).
So it’s good news that a hugely successful programme in the States has shown that we can do something about it. Especially since high achievers even live longer!
We all just need a bit of help to set us on the right path…
The workshop option
A one-day workshop (or two-part virtual session)
This programme explains the big idea behind Positive Intelligence ®.
It will help you understand your saboteurs – what they are, why we have them, how to deal with them.
And in the afternoon (or part two of the virtual session) it will explain how the ‘Sage’ part of your brain works and how to harness its powers in order to overcome your saboteurs, develop your Positive Intelligence ® (PQ) and start fulfilling your potential.
The coaching option
An hour a week – plus practice!
Spend an hour a week learning about your saboteurs, your ‘Sage’ and how to develop self-command.
And then watch the videos and follow the mental fitness ‘exercise regime’ to help put it all into practice. A really effective mix of training, one-to-one coaching and practice, practice, practice!
Works best in small groups (‘pods’) of five or six – great for teams!
The man behind the programme…
We didn’t come up with this ourselves.
It’s the brain-child of Shirzad Chamine, and his organisation, Positive Intelligence, based on his research at Stanford University.
Half a million users (and rising) can’t all be wrong!
She’s fully accredited as a certified Mental Fitness Coach by Positive Intelligence ® to run this programme and gets great feedback for it, as you can see from the testimonials.
Shirzad Chamine’s work – and this programme in particular – has had some great feedback:
‘I attended the Positive Intelligence ® course with Rosanne as my coach. It is important for you to have an authentic and trustworthy coach for this program; Rosanne was both of those for me. In terms of the course, it was eye opening to me and helped me understand behaviors that have impacted me and I probably pressed onto others my entire life. After the course, it is easier for me to understand that I just want to be happy, and I can only control myself. It helped me grow as a professional, but immensely as a person.’
Shannon Bisping, Senior Learning and Development Consultant, D&I Partner
‘I did the 6 week course with Rosanne in September last year amidst one of the busiest times of year for me! Rosanne was incredibly supportive, flexible, friendly and challenging (in a good way!) all at the same time. She supported myself and the pod on a very special journey where we had to become vulnerable in order to build our PQ, and I felt safe and assured in her guidance. I really enjoyed the course and have felt incredible benefits in my work and personal life. The structure of the course is really easy to follow, manageable and real. And Rosanne provided fantastic support, guidance and encouragement. This is truly a lifeskill that is helping me manage my demons and build my self confidence.’
Krista Cooper, Careers Advisor
‘The Positive Intelligence ® (PQ) model is a brilliant breakthrough as it defines, measures, and improves your awareness of your own performance and happiness. It also helps solve the mystery of why so many smart people still fail to be successful.’
Jim Lanzone, Chief Digital Officer, CBS
‘Most of the trainings I’ve done fizzle out very quickly. I started this program a year ago and its impact on me keeps growing. It has been life changing on so many levels. I’m so much more effective and have so much less stress in every area of my life — from blowing past revenue targets at work, to far more fulfilling relationships at home.’
Bruce Zali, VP of Sales & Marketing, Promise Technology
‘This has been the most impactful training I ever experienced. You develop powerful mental muscles to deal with challenges with much less stress and greater clarity, creativity, and resilience. Every sales professional would benefit greatly from this.’
Adam McGraw, Sales VP & GM, American Express
‘What is new and life changing is the ‘mind control,’ the ability to ‘let go’ when any negative feelings take over. This program has given me the ability to be in the driver seat of my life.’
Nathalie Brys, General Counsel, Philips
‘This is the best ‘training’ I’ve done in my 37 years here… I personally have experienced a new sense of energy, engagement and possibility both at work and at home — and I am actually getting full nights of sleep!’
Gale Beckett, Former VP, Quality Assurance, P&G
‘I am much calmer and have a greater sense of happiness than I have felt in years. I feel physically lighter, and my energy is higher. Sage is now present all of the time. I sleep better, eat better, exercise better.’
Sandi Sandiland, Head of Global Sales P&D, Amazon
‘All my life I thought my high achievements were impossible without feeling constant stress. I’ve now learned to achieve even more with a calm and clear mind. I’m now enjoying every day, not just the final accomplishments. At the end of the quarter, I don’t feel the need for a long vacation any more.’
Sharon Pinedo, Head of Sales (Workplace), Facebook
‘I have found this to be one of the very top experiences I’ve had in the past 34 years with my company. The impact on me personally has been profound, and the business impact is evident.’
Bonnie Curtis, Former VP, Product Supply, P&G
‘This has been an extraordinary gift for my team. The concepts are phenomenal — a true revelation in the way to think and handle work and life’s challenges. Besides the lasting impact on myself, I’ve loved hearing how many people this has touched in my company.’
Jessica Herrin, CEO, Stella & Dot
‘This workshop changed my life. I’m working half as hard and generating twice the results. It’s amazing what’s possible when you use these powerful tools.’
‘This has been a profound growth experience. I now consistently feel joy and calm in the middle of handling the many challenges of running my company. Almost a feeling of ‘Throw it at me… I can handle it’ — like I want more challenges now, as if nothing is too much.’
Becky Sharpe, CEO, Collegiate Sports Data
