How does the PQ® program work?

Positive Intelligence® was developed by Shirzad Chamine, a Stanford University instructor and former CEO of Co-Active Training International (CTI).

He brought together the disciplines of positive psychology, performance psychology, cognitive behavior psychology, and neuroscience to create this framework for understanding how the mind works and how it can be exercised to build "mental muscles" that drive wellness, performance, and relationships.

You can read more about Positive Intelligence® in Shirzad's book, Positive Intelligence: Why Only 20% of Teams and Individuals Achieve Their True Potential and How You Can Achieve Yours.
