Supporting Positive Outcomes

Positive Intelligence

Using the Positive Intelligence Program in combination with our weekly coaching sessions, we help teams and individuals develop more positive approaches to support career and personal goals. As certified practitioners of the program, developed by Stanford lecturer, researcher and New York Times best-selling author Shirzad Chamine, we help identify the habits and attitudes that hold people back. By combining neuroscience, cognitive psychology and organizational behaviour concepts, participants cultivate a positive mindset that strengthens their resilience and quiets the negative mind. This 6-week program combines weekly video sessions with daily app-guided practice and weekly meetings to discuss learning and applications to your circumstances.
