Mental Fitness is your key to happiness & success

Do you find yourself getting in your way, sabotaging your career goals and happiness?


Do you wish you were more positive in challenging times?


We all do it. We all sabotage ourselves.
Our inner critic pipes up and stops us in our tracks or derails our plans.

But it doesn’t need to be that way.

In only eight weeks, you can learn how to stop sabotaging yourself and boost your mental fitness.

Through daily app-guided exercises and weekly group coaching, you will get better results, better relationships and a happier mind, fast.

This is for you if...


  • You doubt yourself and sabotage your progress and relationships

  • You tend to procrastinate or go round in circles

  • You feel overwhelmed and stressed under pressure

  • You have tried other courses and gained insight but have been unable to change

Over eight weeks of Mental Fitness coaching, you gain a toolbox of powerful strategies and simple, practical techniques to build your brain 'muscles'.

You become mentally stronger and form new, positive thinking habits to better handle all of life’s challenges.


The impact?

  • Less stress and self-doubt (less overthinking and self-judgment)

  • Dramatically improved performance and productivity (calm, focused action)

  • Healthier relationships (with colleagues, clients and at home)

What is Mental Fitness (PQ)?

You know it's good for you to be physically fit. Life is better and you feel happier. You know how to get fitter. And you know you can measure it.


But how about your mental fitness? You could be more productive at work, more successful, less stressed. Easier to live with, perhaps. But how do you improve your mental fitness? And how do you measure it?


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

Your Saboteurs react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, or worry. They come in different guises - Judge, Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim and they are not helping!

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

So who is in charge inside your head?

They are both at work, the Sage and the Saboteurs, and the balance of power between your negative Saboteurs and your positive Sage reflects your Positive Intelligence Quotient - your PQ, a measure of your mental fitness.


Your PQ score is the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform to your potential*.

You can increase your PQ significantly with practice. This programme helps you do that.

I am finally able to switch from inner critic to positive thinking

"I loved completing the Mental Fitness programme with Karen and have found it incredibly useful and life changing. After years of gaining insight and trying other courses, there have finally been actual changes in my mental health and ability to switch from inner critic to positive thinking. I feel confident and able to continue with this practice and use it with present and future challenges. Karen was a great coach, supporting us through the programme, encouraging us and advising when we were struggling with the exercises. Thank you!"

The 8-week PQ Mental Fitness Boot Camp


Build powerful habits for a positive and resilient mind

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don't build new habits. Sustained change towards a more positive mindset requires 'rewiring the brain' (= laying down neural pathways) to form new habits through consistent daily practice. And that's what this programme empowers you to do.


How it works

The Mental Fitness programme is designed like a boot camp and based on the latest research and insights from neuroscience, positive and cognitive psychology, and performance science for lasting change and optimal results.

It combines weekly video sessions and group coaching with daily app-guided practices to boost your mental fitness and stop self-sabotage in its tracks.


Weekly  Focus - 1-hour Video Sessions

Learn the underlying theory and be guided through experiential exercises that deepen and personalise your understanding of the mental fitness tools you'll be using each week.

Weekly Group Coaching Session + Closed Community Group

Seven weekly coach-led group coaching sessions for everyone to reflect, celebrate wins, discuss any challenges and answer any questions. In between sessions you will receive coach support, share and hold each other accountable in a closed group.

Exclusive App Guiding Your Daily Practice

Each day a different focus for your 15-min daily practice is assigned through the personalised Positive Intelligence® app available exclusively to programme participants. 


This builds one small mental muscle at a time, laying down new neural pathways to form lasting positive habits of your mind. The impact by the programme’s end is substantial. Even after the programme has finished – you still have access to all the tools and guidance on the app for twelve months.

Interactive PQ Gym

Innovative 10-second PQ Reps build 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 a negative to a positive response. 


Measurable Progress 

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

Positive Intelligence Book

By Shirzad Chamine, the founder of Positive Intelligence and leader of Mental Fitness PQ growth. The best-selling book is essential reading for the programme. You will receive a digital copy and the audio book.

8 Weeks of Impactful Practice


Week 1 - Boost your Self-Command Muscle

In the first week you learn innovative 10-second PQ Reps that boost your self-command. With each PQ rep, you develop greater control over your mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive region of your brain.

Week 2 & 3 - Intercept the Judge & Accomplice Saboteurs

You get to intercept your saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your thoughts, feelings, and actions. In preparation for this, you expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your judge and saboteurs, so they can no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.

In week 2, you'll intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. You discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a key source of your stress and damaging to your performance

Every villain has an accomplice! In week 3 you intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your Judge Saboteur, identified through a Saboteur Assessment from the following: Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim. 

Week 4 & 5 - Shift from Saboteur to Sage

After weakening your Saboteurs, it is now time to strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Your Sage lives in an entirely different part of your brain, generates all your positive emotions and helps you achieve peak performance through a calm and clear mind. 


You practice the Sage Perspective that every outcome or circumstance can be turned into a gift and opportunity and replace draining self-judgment with energizing self-acceptance and empathy. 

And you get to generate the gift through the five Sage powers (empathize, explore, innovate, navigate and activate). These 5 powers recombine to form all of the emotional intelligence competencies considered crucial to professional success. 

Week 6 - Take clear-headed, laser-focused action

Use your Sage's Navigate and Activate powers to take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action. Align your actions with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose and act without fear or emotional distractions even in the midst of great crises.

Week 7 & 8 - Sustain the Momentum

In the final two weeks, you discover how to continue using your Mental Fitness tools for a variety of work and life applications and continue building your mental fitness with personalised exercises targeted at your chosen saboteur or sage powers.

I’m now enjoying every day, not just the final accomplishments.

"All my life I thought my high achievements were impossible without feeling constant stress. I’ve now learned to achieve even more with a calm and clear mind. I’m now enjoying every day, not just the final accomplishments."

Sharon Pinedo, Head of Sales, Facebook

Life-changing on so many levels!

"Most of the trainings 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."
