"Transformational change is... 20% Insight, 80% Muscle"

We often know what we need to do to be effective, but we sabotage ourselves. We must build mental fitness – Positive Intelligence, or PQ – by weakening our mental “Saboteurs” and strengthening our mental “Sage”. Leaders with high PQ develop new brain "muscles" and access 5 untapped “Sage” powers: Explore, Empathize, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate. These mental Sage powers enable leaders to be grounded and agile in any situation and to create a thriving team environment.


Discover Your Saboteurs: Take the Assessment

Is your mind serving you or sabotaging you?

With Positive Intelligence (PQ), you discover how to identify and conquer your top mental Saboteurs, including the Judge, Controller, Avoider, Stickler, Pleaser, etc.

These Saboteurs can override our good intentions, subconsciously triggering a defensive reaction and undermining our effectiveness – in meetings, in relationships, and our daily decisions and actions. The first step to conquering your Saboteurs is to identify them and expose their lies and limitations.

This Episode Brought to You by Culture First LIVE Event

Christy interviewed Shirzad for a LIVE event with Culture First, a movement of people who believe a better world of work is possible and are willing to take action to make it real. Culture First is a global community with 100+ chapters worldwide, so listening in were people around the globe, from Denver to Dubai & Michigan to Melbourne.

As an active member of the Culture First Community and Leader of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter, Christy saw what kindred spirits the Culture First and Positive Intelligence communities are and was delighted to bring them together.
