Learn to be happy, healthy and improve your life experience.

With breakthroughs in neuroscience and technology, you can dramatically improve performance and experience less stress with a clear, focused mind and become a happier you.

Positive Intelligence is a term coined by executive coach and author Shirzad Chamine, who wrote a book by the same name. According to Chamine, Positive Intelligence is recognizing and shifting negative thoughts and behaviors and cultivating and maintaining positive states of mind.

It is based on the idea that our thoughts and emotions significantly impact our behavior and decision-making and that we can learn to control our thoughts and emotions to achieve better outcomes in our personal and professional lives.

The concept of Positive Intelligence is rooted in positive psychology, which is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living. Positive psychology focuses on the positive emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that contribute to well-being and flourishing, rather than on psychopathology or the treatment of mental illness.

Positive Intelligence involves cultivating a range of positive states of mind, such as gratitude, compassion, and forgiveness, and learning to recognize and shift negative thoughts and behaviors, such as self-doubt, perfectionism, and procrastination. Positive Intelligence aims to help individuals cultivate a more positive and fulfilling life by becoming more aware of their thoughts and emotions and learning to manage them effectively.


A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken your internal “Saboteurs” that infuse negativity in the way you respond to challenges and causing stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness. You may recognize these Saboteurs operating in your mind as voices of the Judge, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Avoider, Victim, Hyper-Vigilant, Stickler, Pleaser, Hyper-Rational, and Restless.

The voice of your inner wisdom or “Sage” lives in a 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. Wouldn’t you like to activate and strengthen your Sage muscles to perform better and feel happier?

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the right program for me?

This is the right program for you if you are...
1) committed to improving productivity & relationships while reducing stress
2) looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick
3) willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don't serve you. 

Isn't it true that negative emotions are 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 that 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 will personally conduct each of the weekly video sessions. Shirzad also participates in the exclusive online community of the program to answer questions, and cheer you on.

Connie Kadansky will provide weekly personal coaching check-ins either directly with you in one-on-one coaching sessions, or in a small group format. You choose the type of support you need! Connie is a Master Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation and currently working with Shirzad Chamine in bringing the PQ Program to a broad audience.

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 program also includes personal coaching support from Connie in weekly, 30-minue one-on-one sessions, or 45-minute small group “Pod” virtual zoom calls. All-in-all, about 2 hours per week is all that's needed.

This might sound like a lot of time. In fact, 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 than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and productivity this six-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 eight 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.  

PQ Flower

Can I participate with my team?

Even though the focus of the program is individual development, going through this program together significantly deepens trust and helps clear the air related to recurring conflicts since they're mostly generated by Saboteurs. It gives the entire group a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas.  

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 people or more, please contact me directly for more information at [email protected]
