Do you often feel overwhelmed or isolated? Are you anxious of showing that you do not have all the answers? Do you struggle to manage yourself, people and situations the way you wish to?
When we are under stress: no learning occurs, and we cannot access our inner wisdom or use our inner powers, which makes our leadership tasks even more challenging.
You are stronger than you think. Show your brain who is in charge.
Imagine... What the right MasterMind could do for your personal & business growth
What does it take to live from a place of worthiness?*
How do we embrace imperfection?
How do we cultivate what we need?
How do we let go of things that are holding us back?

We focus on Mental Fitness Mastery Strengthen your inner powers for your wellbeing & success Mind | Body | Soul & Culture
PQ | Mental Fitness is your capacity to respond to life's challenges with a positive mindset, without ignoring the negative - for your wellbeing, healthy relationships, and peak performance.
In our sessions...
We dig deep
We practice empathy
We give you the tools to thrive
Are you ready to challenge the status-quo?
The unexamined life is not worth living
Know Yourself To Lead Yourself
A lack of intentional growth, reflection, and self-improvement leads to an “accidental life.” One in which we settle for lesser versions of our best selves because we fail to put in the time and focus to mold our character and our life into the best it can be.
Similarly, one could say that the “unexamined leader is not worth following”. In other words, leaders who fail to regularly and intentionally take time to better understand themselves and others are not the leaders who will bring out the best in themselves or their teams.*1
After all, if we don’t know our values and own strengths, what drives us, and our tendencies under pressure when interacting with others, how can we expect to avoid the pitfalls that sabotage our relational and leadership efforts?
In our Mastermind we give you the tools to "dig deep" so you get to know and understand yourself better, therefore be the leader you want to be.

MasterMind with a PQ+ Distinction
A MasterMind is one of the most powerful ways for leaders to accelerate success. Positive Intelligence | Mental Fitness takes our MasterMind to a whole new level. With our science-based Bootcamp you lay the foundation for lifelong wellbeing & happiness. A group of 5 - 7 leaders, we meet regularly to learn, share, challenges and give, receive feedback. The likelihood of reaching your goals increases to 500% when you’re supported by accountability partners.
Based on PQ (Positive Intelligence | Mental Fitness*) we target the root causes of our daily challenges related to wellbeing, relationships, and performance. You learn how to stop self-sabotaging, change your attitude towards stress and how it affects you, and learn to capitalise on your natural strengths and talents. We use a new format: learning, coaching, technology, and homework. Fun. Simple. Effective.

peace of mind
In our sessions we explore how and encourage each other to use our inner powers to master daily challenges. We inspire the best in each other and ignite hidden talents.
We’ll establish a mutual agreement – confidentiality & trust – so that members can discuss sensitive issues (new ventures, employees issues, customer challenges, and a plethora of topics not usually discussed). We navigate the quandaries through our collective intelligence.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I was quite amazed by the power of PQ.
Discovering my personal Saboteurs and how to limit their impact on my daily life has definitively helped me to keep distance with bad habits leading to stress. I very much appreciated Barbara's and Susanne's guidance as our team coaches. We shared our experience and supported each other when facing difficulties and shared good practices. I recommend this program for professionals feeling overexposed to stress and willing to find tools to explore new positive outcomes."
