PQ Coaching: Rewire Your Brain for Success

Positive Intelligence Coaching (PQ Coaching) is a branch of Executive Coaching that focuses on developing mental resilience and performance by leveraging the principles of Positive Psychology. It’s a systematic approach that helps individuals and organizations cultivate positive emotions, focus on strengths, and overcome challenges more effectively.

Key principles of PQ Coaching:

  1. The Three Core Mental Muscles: PQ Coaching identifies three key mental muscles that are essential for personal and professional growth:
    • Self-Command: Self-command is the ability to control your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It is the capacity to manage your inner world and make choices that are aligned with your goals and values. Self-command allows you to stay focused on your tasks, even in the face of distractions and challenges. It also enables you to manage your emotions effectively, preventing them from derailing your progress.
    • Resilience: Resilience is the ability to bounce back from setbacks and maintain focus in the face of adversity. It is the ability to learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward, even when things don’t go your way. Resilience is essential for success in any endeavor, as there will always be challenges and obstacles along the way.
    • Optimism: Optimism is the belief that you can succeed and the ability to maintain a positive outlook even in difficult times. Optimists tend to be more resilient, have better problem-solving skills, and are more likely to achieve their goals. They also tend to be happier and healthier overall.
  2. The PQ Program: PQ Coaching utilizes a structured program designed to strengthen these three core mental muscles. The program incorporates a variety of techniques, including:
    • Strengths-Based Development: Identifying and leveraging your natural strengths to enhance performance. Our strengths are the things we do best and enjoy most. By identifying and using our strengths, we can achieve greater levels of success and fulfillment.
    • Gratitude Practice: Regularly expressing gratitude for positive experiences. Gratitude is the practice of appreciating the good things in your life. It has been shown to increase happiness, optimism, and resilience.
    • Mindfulness and Meditation: Practicing mindfulness to manage stress and improve focus. Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. It is a powerful tool for managing stress, improving focus, and increasing self-awareness.
  3. PQ Reps: The PQ Program employs a unique concept called “PQ Reps” to reinforce positive behaviors and strengthen the mental muscles. PQ Reps involve engaging in specific actions or repeating positive affirmations to solidify positive patterns.
