Why only 20% of Teams and Individuals Achieve Their True Potential and How You Can Achieve Yours
Greenleaf Book Group, 2012
Stop self-sabotage and tap your inner wisdom by using positive intelligence.
Merging theories from science, positive psychology and coaching, neuroscientist Shirzad Chamine defines your “Positive Intelligence Quotient” (PQ) as “the percentage of time your mind acts as your friend rather than as your enemy.” He explains how to increase your PQ to achieve higher performance, greater happiness and less stress. Your PQ score depends on which mental forces dominate – your “Saboteurs” or your “Sage.” Although many self-help books advocate the power of positive thinking, Chamine repackages the idea for practical application, even if he indulges in special jargon. getAbstract recommends his insights and guidance to those who wish to think more optimistically and to managers who need to turn around underperforming teams.
