Mental Fitness - From self-sabotage to self-mastery
Today, leadership relies on our ability to adapt, regulate our emotions, deal with varying demands and sense emerging needs and opportunities. But, our brains are wired for a simpler world and we experience stress, overwhelm and frustration when we don’t have the mental muscles to handle the complexity, uncertainty and relentless pace of the 21st century.
More than ever, we need to be mentally fit so we can handle challenges with greater ease and flow, waste less time on conflict, drama and self-doubt and channel our energy into making a lasting, positive impact.
3 Core muscles constitute your mental fitness:
Saboteurs Interceptor Muscle
This muscle helps you become aware of your top saboteurs and become skilled at discrediting and intercepting them before they generate unhelpful thoughts, emotions and internal voices that stop you from reaching your potential.
This muscle handles challenges with a clear and calm mind. It has access to your 5 primary powers: Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate. For peak performance, you learn how and when to use each power skilfully.
This muscle is able to self-regulate your thoughts and feelings. Innovative 10-second exercises called PQ reps are used to build up this crucial muscle in the brain, just like doing reps in a gym build your biceps.
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
Improvements in these capacities lead to substantial results:
High PQ Leads to an almost 10-year increase in lifespan (based on historical data extrapolation by independent researchers)
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 greatest predictor of its achievementt
Project teams perform 31 percent better on key performance metric
Higher PQ results in enhanced immune system functioning, lower levels of stress-related hormones, lower blood pressure, less pain, fewer colds, better sleep, and a smaller likelihood of having hypertension, diabetes, or strokes
Employees take fewer sick days and are less likely to become burned out or quit
What People Say About The Positive Intelligence Programme
The Positive Intelligence (PQ) model is a brilliant breakthrough as it defines, measures, and improves your awareness of your own performance and happiness. It also helps solve the mystery of why so many smart people still fail to be successful.”
“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.”
“This has been the most impactful training I ever experienced. You develop powerful mental muscles to deal with challenges with much less stress and greater clarity, creativity, and resilience”
