Knowing Your Saboteur

Introducing a framework for developing mental fitness created by Shirzad Chamine. The Positive Intelligence programme grows your three core mental fitness muscles. The programme begins with getting to know your Saboteur exploring the results of your free PQ assessment.

Knowing Your Saboteur

After completing the free PQ assessment, participants will explore their own Judge Saboteur and its accomplice Saboteurs. Understanding the patterns of our learned behaviors helps us to begin to harness the strengths we can bring and also how they might negatively impact on others when overplayed. Developing this positive intelligence will have a transformational effect on how you perceive yourself and will also result in more conscious and positive exchanges and improved relationships with others.
