Saboteurs and Sage woman

Activate and sustain Mental Fitness and Positive Intelligence: For Innovators, Creatives and Entrepreneurs

Are Your Inner Saboteurs Stifling Your Creative Genius?

Creativity and innovation take courage and perseverance— and when challenges arise, your mind can be your greatest ally or your worst enemy.

Are you ready to transform the way you respond to life’s challenges?

Imagine being able to handle transitions, blocks, and setbacks with ease and flow, replacing stress and anxiety with resilience, creativity, and innovation. Believe it or not, it’s entirely possible to train your brain to handle life’s greatest challenges without stress and negative emotions taking over. But it does take mental fitness training.

So, what exactly is mental fitness?

It’s all about your Positive Intelligence Quotient (PQ), which determines how often your mind works for you, not against you. The good news is that your PQ can be built and strengthened over time, just like any other muscle.

Imagine there are two voices constantly vying for your attention. The Saboteurs are those negative voices and limiting beliefs that hold you back from your full potential. They love to motivate you with fear, stress, anger, and insecurity. The most common Saboteur is the Judge, who constantly criticizes you and your circumstances.

On the flip side, there’s your Sage, your positive counterpart motivating you with curiosity, empathy, creativity, and calm. Strengthening your Sage is key to boosting your PQ and taking clear, focused action. The first step to mastering your mind is understanding the difference between your Sage and your Saboteurs and recognizing which one is in control.

Are you ready to transform the way you respond to life’s challenges?

Research* shows that an astounding 80% of individuals and teams score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness. While IQ and EQ are important, it’s your PQ that determines how much of your potential you actually achieve.

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build habits. Sustained change towards a more positive mind requires laying down neural pathways to form new habits through consistent daily practice. And that’s what our PQ Program empowers you to do.

Imagine being able to create and innovate with ease and flow, rather than being plagued by stress, anxiety, procrastination and perfectionism (all symptoms of fear caused by your inner judge).

 Awaken to Your Creative Genius with The PQ® Mental Fitness Program
Build Powerful Habits for a Positive Mind

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build habits. Sustained change towards a more positive mind requires laying down neural pathways to form new habits through consistent daily practice. And that’s what our PQ Program empowers you to do.

Through daily practice, the PQ®Program helps identify and decrease negative thoughts (your Saboteurs) and works to increase positive thoughts (your Sage).


While PQ®  benefits all aspects of your life—health, relationships, and performance— we will be paying particular attention to creativity, innovation, and leadership.

If you are a leader, a creative, or an innovator going through a transition, the PQ® program will change your life and livelihood for the better

Curious about the science behind PQ?

Research in neuroscience, organizational science, and positive psychology shows that higher PQ leads to greater success in work, health, and relationships. ??

An analysis of more than two hundred scientific studies, involving over 275,000 people, concluded that higher PQ leads to higher salaries and greater success in work, marriage, health, sociability, friendship, and creativity.

  • Salespeople with higher PQ sell 37% more than their lower-PQ counterparts.
  • Higher-PQ CEOs are more likely to lead happy teams who report a conducive work climate for high performance.
  • Project teams with higher-PQ managers perform 31% better on average when other factors are equal.

I’ve personally experienced the incredible impact of mental fitness, which I wrote about in my confessional recently. It has helped me overcome procrastination, conquer anxiety, and even alleviate insomnia. It’s also empowered my coaching. I’ve witnessed my coaching clients shifting from tears of frustration as they go through transitions, to smiles of clarity and hope within minutes. The power of this coaching is truly awe-inspiring.

I have been trained in PQ® Mental Fitness coaching by Shirzad Chamine, neuroscientist, CEO of Positive Intelligence, and author of the book by the same name. I am excited to introduce this program to you.
