If you're a leader who is a high-achiever you might be:
  • Feeling burnout, overwhelmed, and not performing as well as you would like
  • Tired of feeling stressed and frustrated
  • Drained by dealing with (difficult) people and situations
  • Unhappy and wanting to improve your relationships with the people who matter to you
  • Craving calm, ease, and fulfillment in your work and personal life

The truth is your brain is one of your greatest assets, but if you are not mentally fit, you’ll feel stress, anxiety, and unhappiness as you handle work and relationship challenges.

You can break free from old patterns and create a new reality by rewiring your brain and creating new neuropathways.

The PQ Foundation Mental Fitness Bootcamp for leaders is an app-guided program that will guide you step-by-step to build lasting new positive habits to respond to life’s challenges with a more positive mindset rather than a negative mindset.

Experience immediate and sustained improvements in both your well-being and leadership performance.

The foundation of this program is on four breakthrough areas of science:  

Neuroscience, Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Psychology, and Performance Science

Based on a curriculum developed by Professor Shirzad Chamine, the author of Positive Intelligence. Vimari Roman, your Certified Positive Intelligence & Mental Fitness Coach, will lead your group meetings and support you throughout the program to help you transform your performance, well-being, and relationships.

"I'm amazed at the growth and development that has taken place in my life. I'm able to catch and identify what triggers me promptly so that I can self-correct immediately."
Your brain is your greatest asset
But how do you Self Sabotage?

A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs who generate all your “negativity” in how they respond to challenges. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness.

Discover Your Inner Critic & What’s Holding You Back

Saboteurs are your inner critic, causing the voices in your head that generate stress and negative emotions in handling work and life’s challenges. They sabotage your potential for both happiness and performance.

Start increasing your Positive Intelligence by taking the free saboteur assessment. This assessment will tell you which of your saboteurs are most active for you.

"One of the most impactful programs I've been a part of. It helped me to identify and weaken my saboterus and improve my life dramatically" - Tom
"I always thought that there was something wrong with me. I could not get out of this cycle. Now I know those saboteurs will always be there but I know how I can focus in a different direction." - Alicia

PQ Foundation Bootcamp for Leaders
7 Weeks of Inspired Practice

Learn to boost your self-command muscle and run your brain rather than being run by your Saboteur-hijacked brain. Self-command is key to intercepting unhelpful mental habits and rewiring your brain to respond more effectively.

Learn how to intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. You discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a key source of your stress and damaging to your performance.

Learn to intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your Judge Saboteur, identified through the Saboteur Assessment from the following: Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim. Expose your accomplice Saboteur’s hidden lies, limiting beliefs and negative patterns.

After weakening your Saboteurs, it is now time to strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Your Sage lives in an entirely different part of your brain, generates all of your positive emotion and achieves peak performance through a calm and clear-headed mind.

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 Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate.

The Sage regions of the brain enable 5 primary powers. Analogous to the 3 primary colors, these 5 powers recombine to form all of the emotional intelligence (EQ) competencies considered crucial to professional success.

In this closing session, you’ll connect with a deep inner well of wisdom that can help you navigate toward your best solutions to large and small challenges. You’ll also discover how to continue using your PQ tools for a variety of work and life applications. Commit to maintaining your emphasis on the sage perspective and intercepting your saboteurs to sustain your new habits.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes your program different?

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build habits. 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 design empowers you to do.

Focus on Habit Formation

Most training results in short-lived improvements. We focus on building neural pathways that form lasting new habits for sustained results. That’s why we call this “mental fitness.”

Treat Root Cause, not Symptoms

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.

Develop all 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, Many Applications

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 Ongoing Growth

Similar to physical fitness, mental fitness is not short-term training. After the initial six-weeks foundation, our app ensures continued growth through a variety of work and life applications.

Research-Based, Measurable Results

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.

100% Risk-Free Guarantee

Maybe you’re skeptical. You need to experience this program to believe it. I understand. That’s why I offer an iron-clad 14-day guarantee.
At any time during the first 14 days of the program, simply send me an email requesting a refund. No explanation needed. No questions asked. Your payment will be refunded within 48 hours or less.

Is this the right program for me?

Crushing Mental Fitness is right for you if:

– You are committed to improving your performance and effectiveness dramatically while reducing stress
– You are looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick
– You are willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you

Who will lead the Crushing Mental Fitness Bootcamp?

Vimari Roman will personally facilitate each of the accountability group meetings and will be available to you at all times to answer questions.

Shirzad Chamine, author of Positive Intelligence, will conduct each of the weekly video sessions. Shirzad will also participate daily in the exclusive online community of the program participants to answer questions, provide coaching, and cheer you on.

How much time and effort is required?

You’d be committing to watching a 1-hour video once per week and doing a combined total of 15 minutes per day of practice guided by the Positive Intelligence app exclusively designed for this program. In addition, you’ll have a weekly accountability group meeting that will last no more than an hour.

This might sound like a lot of time. In fact, cumulatively, it constitutes less than 2% of your awake time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your Saboteurs are costing you far more than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and productivity this six-week investment will save for years to come.

How will I be able to measure my progress?

You’ll feel motivated through instant feedback via the mobile app on exactly how much progress you’re making towards building the 3 core muscles of mental fitness. We also have a PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient, or Positivity Quotient for short) Score assessment that measures the relative strength of your positive versus negative mental muscles. You can take the PQ Score assessment at the beginning of the program to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you and then take it again at the end of the program to measure the difference. Lastly, brain rewiring may be visible in MRI imaging within 8 weeks.

What research is PQ based on?

Positive Intelligence is based on research in Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, and Performance Science. Ongoing research for Positive Intelligence involves over 500,000 participants in 50 countries, including CEOs, Stanford students and elite athletes, and sales, operations, and technology teams. Multiple studies demonstrate that individuals with higher Positive Intelligence Quotient (PQ) outsell and perform those with lower PQ by 37%.

How is this different from reading the book?

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. 

How will I be able to measure my progress?

You’ll feel motivated through instant feedback via the mobile app on exactly how much progress you’re making towards building the 3 core muscles of mental fitness. We also have a PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient, or Positivity Quotient for short) Score assessment that measures the relative strength of your positive versus negative mental muscles. You can take the PQ Score assessment at the beginning of the program to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you and then take it again at the end of the program to measure the difference. Lastly, brain rewiring may be visible in MRI imaging within 8 weeks.

Do you have corporate or group discounts?

Yes, if you would like to purchase the Positive Intelligence® program for your employees, or any group of 8 people and above, please contact Vimari Roman at vimari@beproductivecoaching.com for more information. Even though the focus of the program is individual development, team leaders often call this experience the best team building experience they have ever had. Going through this program together significantly deepens trust, helps clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts since they’re mostly generated by Saboteurs, and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas.

What happens after I complete the program?

After the program is completed you have the opportunity to join the mental fitness membership and meet with Vimari Roman for 1-1 coaching sessions.
