Positive Intelligence: Why Only 20% of Teams and Individuals Achieve Their True Potential and How You Can Achieve Yours–Vistage Workshop

Are you interested in boosting your performance, reducing stress, & improving your relationships? Don’t miss the opportunity to be in this Vistage workshop on Positive Intelligence.

Why Mental Fitness?

If you’re physically fit, you can climb steep hills without physical stress. If you’re mentally fit, you can handle life’s great challenges without mental stress or other negative emotions. Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur). This measure of your Mental Fitness is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient).

Research with 500,000 participants has shown PQ to be the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. This work is a synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science.

The research is the basis of Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence, and Stanford lectures.

The Evidence Demonstrates Positive Results

This is evidence-based and proven to have the following results:

  • Salespeople sell 37 percent more
  • Project teams perform 31 percent better on key performance metrics
  • Negotiators are more likely to gain concessions and close deals
  • CEOs are more likely to lead happy teams who report their work climate to be conducive to high performance
  • A comparison of sixty teams showed that a team’s PQ was the most significant predictor of its achievement

  • Measure the Positive Intelligence® Score (PQ) for yourself or your team and increase it dramatically
  • Identify which of the ten “Saboteurs” are your hidden internal enemies: Judge, Controller, Victim, Stickler, Avoider, Pleaser, Restless, Hyper- Achiever, Hyper-Vigilant, or Hyper-Rational.
