Build Positive 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. That’s what our program design empowers you to do.

Daily Practice

15 minutes/day of app-guided practice

enables you to establish mental muscles

(neural pathways). These exercises are

bite-sized to fit your busy schedule and

customized based on how you self-


Weekly Focus

Weekly hour-long video delivers deep

experiential exploration of the week’s

focus. You’ll feel inspired and energized to

practice during the week in order to

sustain the benefits experienced during

the video sessions.

Measurable Progress

You’ll feel motivated through instant

feedback on exactly how much progress

you’re making towards building the 3 core

muscles of mental fitness. Brain rewiring

may be visible in MRI imaging within 8


Community Support

We help you establish a support and

accountability group with other program

participants. Research has shown this to

be a critical success factor for establishing

lasting new positive habits of the mind.

8-Week Foundation

You get to build a foundation of mental fitness by strengthening three critical mental muscles to shift the balance of power from your inner Saboteurs (your negative self) to your inner Sage (your positive self).

Week 1 Get Ready

Meet and greet party! Get access to the app and Positive Intelligence book..

Set your goals for the next eight weeks

Week 2 Self Command Muscle

Through a breakthrough process called PQ Reps, you get to boost your

Self-Command muscle. Each PQ Rep only takes 10 seconds and can be

done with eyes open or closed. With each PQ Rep, you develop greater

mastery over your own mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive

region of your brain.

Week 3-4 Saboteur Interceptor Muscle

You get to intercept your top Saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your

thoughts, feelings, and actions. In preparation for this practice, you get to

expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your Saboteurs, so they can

no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.

Week 5-7 Sage Muscle

You get to practice the Sage Perspective that every problem or challenge

can be converted into a gift and opportunity. And you get to generate the

gift through the 5 Sage Powers of Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate,

and Activate.

Week 8 Celebration, reflection, and what's next

You get a one on one PQ operating system session in the last week.

We will celebrate your success and your Positive Intelligence Coach

will guide you through the PQ operating system to show you how

to put all the pieces together to take on any

challenge big or small.

What Makes Our Program Different

Focus on Habit Formation

Most trainings result in short-lived improvements. For sustained results, we focus on building neural pathways that form

lasting new habits. That’s why we call this “mental fitness”.

Develop all 3 Core Muscles

Mental fitness requires 3 core muscles. Saboteur Interceptor, Self-Command, and Sage. Meditation only focuses on Self-Command, which is why it is not sustained by most.

Treat Root Cause, not Symptoms

Our factor analysis research has revealed the foundational root-level enablers and disablers of optimal performance and wellbeing. We rewire the brain at the root cause level.

One Operating System, Many Applications

Through factor analysis, we’ve discovered the core operating system of the mind that can run a massive variety of

work and life applications. One simple operating system, many applications.

A Platform for Ongoing Growth

Similar to physical fitness, mental fitness is not a short-term training. After the initial six-weeks foundation,

our app ensures continued growth through a variety of work and life applications.

Research-Based, Measurable Results

Our research has included more than a million participants from around the globe. Our tools have been field-tested

with thousands of tough-minded participants, ensuring their efficacy.

Is this the right program for me?

This is the right program for you if you are a) committed to improving your performance and effectiveness dramatically while reducing stress, b) looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick, and c) willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you.

Aren't negative emotions sometimes helpful?

Some people believe that negative emotions are helpful. For example, they think stress gives them their performance edge, or beating themselves or others up is helpful for continual improvement. Feeling pain for a split second when your hand touches a hot stove is indeed useful, delivering an important alert. But your Saboteurs keep your hand on the hot stove, continuing to feel negative emotions which harm both performance and happiness. In this program we learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert, and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm clarity, objectivity, and creativity to handle the challenge most effectively.

Who will lead the Positive Intelligence Program?

Shirzad Chamine conducts each of the weekly video sessions. Shirzad will also participate daily in the exclusive online community of the program participants to answer questions, provide coaching, and cheer you on.

Heidi Aderman, a Positive Intelligence Coach will lead the weekly Pod meetings and will participate in the online community to answer questions, provide coaching, and cheer you on.

How much time and effort is required?

You'd be committing to watching a 1-hour video once per week and doing a combined total of 15 minutes per day of practice guided by the Positive Intelligence app exclusively designed for this program.

This might sound like a lot of time. In face, cumulatively, it constitutes less than 2% of your awake time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your Saboteurs are costing you far more than2% of your time, effort, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and productivity this eight-weeks investment will save for years to come.

How is this different from reading the book?

You'd never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You'll be asked to read the first 8 chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video session guides you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools to your own personality and needs. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily work and life challenges.

Should we participate as a team?

Even though the focus of the program is individual development, team leaders often call this experience the best team building experience they have ever had. Going through this program together significantly deepens trust, help clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts since they're mostly generated by Saboteurs, and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agenda

Do you have corporate/group discounts?

Yes, if you would like to purchase the Positive Intelligence Program for your employees, or any group of 8 and above, please book an appointment for more information.
