Only 20% of teams and individuals achieve their full potential, and they don’t really know what’s holding them back. People purposefully carve out time in their day to go to the gym to lift weights or to run or ride the Peloton to be physically fit. Very few, however, are carving out any time to develop their mental fitness. It’s life’s greatest challenges at work and home that cause mental stress and drive negative emotions, and we act upon those emotions. Are we making the best decisions for our business? Are we making the best decisions in our personal lives? Are we losing productivity because we are taking too much time to make those decisions? 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.
