Positive Intelligence and the PQ Program are 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 was 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.

Within 6-8 weeks of mental fitness training you'd be able to see the results in MRI imaging:  

  • Increased grey matter in the PQ Brain region, where your Sage lives 

  • Decreased grey matter in the Survivor Brain region, where your Saboteurs live

Breakthrough Research

The PQ Mental Fitness Program

The Positive Quotient measures the relative strength of your positive mental resilience. PQ is the most widely used measure of mental fitness. Independent researchers have validated this measure to be the greatest predictor of how happy you are, and how well you perform against your potential.

What is PQ (Positive Quotient)?

Designed like a mental fitness bootcamp, the 7-week PQ Program provides the insights, motivation, and structure to to build positive habits that transform neural pathways. The program combines weekly video sessions with daily app-guided practices to boost your 3 core mental fitness muscles.
