Resilience (Mental) Fitness & Leadership Success

Resilience is the ability to cope with life’s adversities.  It is the capacity to accept life’s good and bad moments, to learn and grow stronger.

Mental Fitness is a measurement of the strength of the predisposition to respond with positivity, one’s sage versus negative reactions, one’s saboteur reaction. That measurement is referred to as the Positive Intelligence Quotient or PQ for short.

The research basis of PQ is a synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience, cognitive and positive psychology, and performance science.  Data collected from over 500,000 participants have shown PQ to be the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential.  Details of the research can be found in Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence and Standford lectures.

Leadership Success comes with mastery over one’s internal dialogue and effective (clear and respectful) conversation with colleagues, direct reports, and team members.

“Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness.”

The process to increasing your Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs that generate all your “negativity” in the way they respond to challenges. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness. Saboteurs include the Judge, Controller, Avoider, Victim, Stickler, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Restless and Pleaser

Your “Sage” lives in an entirely different region of your brain and handles challenges in ways that produce positive emotions like curiosity, empathy, creativity, calm, and clear-headed laser-focused action.  When you lead with these emotions and behaviours, you perform better and feel happier.

Happiness: You feel less stressed, more peace, and consistent happiness, even in tough times.

Relationships: You improve relationships, able to handle conflicts in ways that deepen trust and harmony.
