Your internal voice plays a significant role in helping you achieve your success or derail your progress. There are 10 saboteurs that can wreak havoc on your personal and professional life. Imagine what life could be like when you learn to move away from negative self-talk. After this class, you can, and you will.

Much like exercising your physical muscles, developing mental fitness enables us to handle life’s greatest challenges without mental stress and negativity. Positive Intelligence (PQ) measures how mentally fit you are and is the best predictor of your happiness and performance potential. Based on the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science, PQ is about performing better without working as hard, finding consistent peace and happiness, even in tough times, and handling conflict in ways that deepen trust and harmony.

In this interactive session, you will:

• Identify which of the 10 saboteurs prevent you from functioning at your highest level
• Learn the characteristics of each saboteur and how you can reframe them in a positive way
• Grow the three core mental muscles to thrive in challenging times
• Discover what holds you back when confronted with difficult situations
• Explore the benefits of practicing self-command
• Reorient how negative emotions can help shift your experience
• Develop strategies to lessen the saboteurs’ influence while implementing easy to learn tools that move you away from them

A link to an online assessment will be provided three days prior to the session for attendees to take. You will receive a nine-page report detailing your saboteurs in order from the most to the least. This will lay the foundation for the class work.
