Positive Intelligence Coach Linda Mitchell
PQ Coaching for Breaking Destructive Patterns
The PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient) program reveals the top ways you sabotage your own success and happiness AND how to finally break away from those old destructive patterns. We all have an inner critic that judges us harshly and even speaks to us in ways we wouldn’t ever speak to our loved ones. Yes, our brains have a negative bias but when you learn how to turn that around, even in the most difficult situations, you stop sabotaging our own success, happiness and relationships.
All day, every day, we’re bombarded with challenges, decisions, commitments and relationships that can lead to stress, anxiety, worry and fear BUT we now have a proven solution that transforms your old habits and actually creates new empowering habits instead.
If you’d like to boot your mean inner critic out of the driver seat of your life and put your wise sage in control instead, PQ is for you. Finally stop the negative self-talk and instead learn how to remain positive, calm and focused where you never could before. Take the assessment below and learn your top saboteurs and how to defeat them daily. We’ll discuss what your results reveal in detail during a complementary PQ Coaching call.
Lifelong Applications of the PQ Program
Positive Intelligence is an operating system with many applications. In the first six weeks you develop your 3 core mental muscles. In subsequent weeks, modules in the app then enable you to use those muscles for a variety of work and life applications – many of which are shown below. You continue to grow and feel more ease and less stress and anxiety.

Testimonials for the PQ Coaching Program
What's in the Program?
Through a breakthrough process called PQ® Reps, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. Each PQ® Rep only takes 10 seconds and can be done with eyes open or closed. With each PQ® Rep, you develop greater mastery over your own mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive region of your brain.
Yes, it really does work!
Saboteur Interceptor Muscle
You get to intercept your top Saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your thoughts, feelings and actions. In preparation for this practice, you get to expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your Saboteurs, so they can no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.
You get to practice the Sage Perspective that every problem or challenge can be converted into a gift and opportunity. And you get to generate the gift through the 5 Sage Powers of:

Positive Intelligence impacts the 3 most important areas of life -
Your capacity to respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than a negative mindset.
- Peak performance
- Peace of mind/wellness
- Healthy relationships
After all, isn’t that what an enjoyable and fulfilling life is all about? Here’s your doorway to more peace of mind and wellness, stronger relationships and better performance both personally and professionally!
Your brain is either your best friend or your worst enemy!
If you are physically fit, you can climb steep hills without physical stress. Similarly, if you are mentally fit, you can handle life’s great challenges without mental stress, frustration, or other negative emotions.
PQ reveals your mental fitness level by measuring the strength of your positive mental muscles versus the negative.
Aren’t negative emotions useful?
If you touch a hot stove, it’s helpful to feel pain to alert yourself. Similarly, negative feelings are helpful to alert you to important things. However, if you stay in the negative emotions, you’re keeping your hands on the hot stove and sabotaging your ability to respond optimally.
A key to mental fitness is how quickly you can recover from negative to positive response.
TAKE YOUR HAND OFF THE STOVE!
Build powerful habits for a positive mind
Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build the habits necessary to support the change. Sustained change towards a more positive mind requires laying down neural pathways to form new habits through consistent daily practice.
And that’s what our program empowers you to do!
What Makes This Program Different?
Continual Focus on
Most trainings result in short-lived improvements. For sustained results, we focus on building neural pathways that form lasting new habits. That’s why we call this “mental fitness”.
Treat Root Cause,
Our factor analysis research has revealed the foundational root-level enablers and disablers of optimal performance and wellbeing. We rewire the brain at the root cause level.
Our research has included more than a million participants from around the globe. Our tools have been field-tested with thousands of tough-minded participants, ensuring their efficacy.
3 Core Muscles
Mental fitness requires 3 core muscles. Saboteur Interceptor, Self-Command, and Sage. Meditation only focuses on Self-Command, which is why it is not sustained by most.
One Operating System,
Through factor analysis, we’ve discovered the core operating system of the mind that can run a massive variety of work and life applications. One simple operating system, many applications
A Platform for
Similar to physical fitness, mental fitness is not a short-term training. After the initial six-weeks foundation, our app ensures continued growth through a variety of work and life applications.
Is there a book I can read instead?
You’d never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You’ll be asked to read the first 8 chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video session guides you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools to your own personality and needs. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily work and life challenges. You have a trained coach to lead you through the program.
Breakthrough Research that has been Validated by 500,000+ Participants.
This program is based on research with more than 500,000 individual participants from 50 countries, including CEOs, students, elite athletes, sales, operations, and technology teams.
The breakthrough contribution of Positive Intelligence research is through factor analysis to discover the core factors that impact both performance and wellbeing. This research revealed that there are only 10 negative response factors (10 Saboteurs) and only 5 positive response factors (5 Sage powers).
This PQ program is based on 4 areas of research:
Discovering these root-level factors of performance and wellbeing dramatically simplifies personal and professional development. Intercepting one’s Saboteur and activating one’s Sage automatically results in a wide array of impacts including stress management, relationship improvement, performance, selling and persuasion, creativity, leadership, resilience, and happiness.
This is because we are rewiring the brain at the root level rather than treating symptoms.
You have two very different regions in your brain: Thrive and Survive
Which do you prefer to live in?
Recent advances in functional MRI (fMRI), which measures how neural brain activity changes blood flow, have allowed scientists and psychologists to witness the real-time working of the brain for the very first time!
We are now able to pinpoint the regions of the brain involved in producing different thoughts or feelings and identify the neural functions involved with the activation of Saboteurs and the Sage parts of the brain.
The Survive Region =
Your Inner Saboteurs
Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions when you handle life’s challenges. They exist in the brainstem, limbic system and parts of the left brain. They produce much of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, anger, shame, guilt, frustration and mind chatter. These negative emotions are only helpful for a second as they alert you to dangers or issues. However, staying in these emotions hurts your ability to see clearly and choose the best or most impactful response.
The Thrive Region =
Your Inner Sage
Your Sage lives in an entirely different region of your brain, the middle prefrontal cortex. “empathy circuitry”, and parts of the right brain. It generates positive emotions while handling life’s challenges. These include empathy, compassion, gratitude, curiosity, joy of creativity, and calm, clear-headed laser-focused action. This region is wired for creative problem solving and big picture awareness of what is important and the best course of action. Activating this region results in release of endorphins that counter the negative impacts of the stress-induced hormone known as cortisol.
