Mental Fitness Program

Imagine if… by engaging in 2-minute exercises just 3 times a day…

  • you were able to reduce your anxiety, stress & burnout
  • you were able to finally quiet your mind of negative self-talk and ditch living by your "shoulds..."
  • you were able to stop waking up at 3 am, lying awake with your mind racing
  • you had a program that is proven to boost all 18 Emotional Intelligence competencies
  • as a Leader, you found a program that significantly deepens employee trust, helps clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas


Mental Fitness is the X-Factor in Building your inner well of Resilience & Wellbeing!

If you are not physically fit, you’d feel physical stress as you climb a steep hill.  

If you are not mentally fit, you’d feel mental stress, such as anxiety, frustration, or unhappiness, as you handle work and relationship challenges.  

80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness.  

The great news? With recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and technology, you can now improve your mental fitness significantly within 6 weeks of practice. 

The results? Dramatically improved performance and productivity and a calm, clear and happier mind.


Measuring Mental Fitness (PQ)

Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur).  

Saboteurs react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, or worry.

Your Sage handles challenges through positive emotions like empathy, gratitude, curiosity, creativity, self-confidence, and calm, clear-headed, laser-focused action. 

The relative strength of your positive Sage versus negative Saboteurs is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient).  

PQ is the measure of your Mental Fitness. It's the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. 

You can boost your PQ significantly with practice. 


“A brilliant breakthrough.”

"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  


PQ is a synthesis of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science. 

Research included: 

  • hundreds of CEOs
  • sales, operations, and technology teams
  • Stanford students
  • elite athletes
  • 400,000 participants from 50 countries

This research is summarized in Shirzad Chamine's book Positive Intelligence, a New York Times bestseller, translated into 20 languages.  

The research reveals that:

  • Saboteurs and Sage live in entirely different regions of the brain.
  • You can cause a dramatic shift in brain activation to weaken Saboteurs and boost Sage.
  • 3 core muscles constitute mental fitness.


Introducing the PQ Program!

Designed like a mental fitness Bootcamp, the PQ Program gives you the insights, motivation, and structure to practice 15 minutes per day for 6 weeks. 

The program combines weekly video sessions with daily app-guided practices to boost your 3 core mental fitness muscles. 

Weekly 1-hour Video Sessions

In these highly engaging sessions, Shirzad guides you through experiential exercises that deepen and personalize your understanding of the mental fitness tools. You leave inspired and energized for the week's daily practices.

Exclusive App Guiding Your Daily Practice

Each day a different focus for daily practice is assigned through a personalized companion app available exclusively to program participants. 

This builds one small muscle at a time, laying down new neural pathways to form lasting positive habits of your mind. The cumulative impact by the program's end is substantial.

Interactive PQ Gym

Innovative 10-second PQ Reps build up your Self-Command muscle. You learn to be clear-headed and calm even in the midst of great challenges, able to command your mind to shift from Saboteur to Sage response.

Daily Progress Tracking

The app tracks your daily progress against minimum targets associated with new neural pathway (muscle) formation. Personalized daily coaching tips from Shirzad continue to both encourage and challenge you to keep going.

"Life-changing on so many levels"

"Most of the training 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

How You Self Sabotage

A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs who generate all your “negativity” in the way they respond to challenges. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness. Saboteurs include the Judge, Controller, Avoider, Victim, Stickler and 5 others.

Your “Sage” lives in an entirely different region of your brain and handles challenges in ways that produce positive emotions like curiosity, empathy, creativity, calm, and clear-headed laser-focused action. You’d perform better and feel happier.


"The most impactful training I ever experienced"

"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
