Grow Your Mental Fitness & Reduce Your Stress & Anxiety – 6 Week Positive Intelligence Program

What participants have said about the program…

“I have found the program helpful in improving relationships, working with difficult people, minimising stress, self-actualisation and being empathetic towards myself. I’m looking forward to continuing using the PQ app and re-engaging with the material.” Donna, Executive

“I recently participated in the PQ Program facilitated by Kelly. I was really surprised by how much it gave me and how much it is still giving to me even after it has finished. I learned a lot about myself and others, how to deal with certain aspects of my personality that sabotage my ability to move forward on things. At times there were ‘triggers’ but that was a great part of the process and moving forward for sure – being aware and knowing the tools to handle these ‘saboteurs’ as they crop up in your day to day. The great aspect of this program is the support Pod and the app which is a wonderful and easy to use tool – I keep referring to it now and it gives me the ‘kick’ I need with daily reminders too. Highly recommend this course to anyone who is open to learning more about themselves.” Nicole, Professional

“The PQ program has helped me to deal with challenging situations with a positive mindset. The program fast tracked new practices into my daily life and has improved my mindset during challenging times.” Rosemary, Manager

The past 2 years has proven mentally exhausting for even the most robust of us.

Like my clients, I am somewhat of a high achiever who likes to keep moving forward and to work and live with positivity and purpose. That is not always easy, particularly in a pandemic. Those negative thoughts, voices and the internal critic have been playing too loudly for many of us as work and life becomes more challenging with less certainty, more self- doubt and greater strains placed on our relationships at work and home.

How the Program Works

If you would like to join me as your Coach & Pod Leader, (for the pod of 5) for the 6 week Positive Intelligence Program in February 2022 all you need is a mobile phone to download the positive intelligence app and 15 minutes a day to do the exercises.

Simple Weekly Reflections to Refocus Your Career, Energy & Mindset

Reflection involves serious thought or consideration being given to experiences, which can be difficult to do given the busy lives we all lead. Many of us are stuck in a cycle of action &/or re-action with little time for reflection.  For more information see The Triangle of Responding to Change & Stress!  

Reflecting on our experiences is a way to understand and know ourselves better. While thinking is a cognitive activity, reflection involves the emotional and physical dimension which can be lost, particularly in our work. Exploring with curiosity issues from a different perspective can help challenge our assumptions and preconceptions, while encouraging the growth of new ideas and opinions.

*Give yourself permission to spend 10-15 minutes at the end of each work week to capture in a notebook your reflections.
Below are some grouped reflection prompter questions to start with. Focus on up to four questions each sitting.

How was my work week?

– Have I experienced any internal resistance at work?  What did it feel like?

How did I overcome this resistance?

– What strategies are working for me now at work?

The Triangle of Responding to Change & Stress! Where Do You Go First?

It is easy to get overwhelmed by all the models and theories around change, stress, emotional intelligence and so on.  Particularly during the current climate of uncertainty, heightened stress and endless challenges at home and work.  

I always find ‘The Response Scenario Triangle’ one of the most effective and useful models for understanding how we typically respond during times of stress, change or conflict.  It is such an accessible model for people, and one that can be applied quickly throughout the day when we find ourselves defaulting to unhelpful responses or behaviours.  It is also useful to gain greater insight into our bosses and colleague’s behaviours, especially when they are under stress!

Take 5 minutes to think about how you typically respond when your stressed?

Where do you go to first? Action, Emotion, Thinking?  

Example: Action, I like to be busy and feel as though I am dealing with the problem in a direct and tangible way. I just jump in.

Why do you go there?  

Example: It gives me a sense of control initially, forces me to not to dwell on how I am thinking or feeling about a situation. I like to be busy doing.  It is where I am most comfortable.

How long do you typically stay there for? What makes you leave that position and move into the next phase?

Example: often too long!  I will tend to go to the position of Thinking when what I am doing is not working or be bringing about the right results I desire as quickly as I want them.  Or, when it is pointed out to me that I have overlooked something. Then I will move to the Thinking phase.  I go to emotion last, and only if I have too!  I do not like to focus on how I am feeling and the emotions of others too much.  This is where I am least comfortable.

Having reflected on how you typically respond to change, conflict and/or stress, what have you observed? 

  • Do you miss any of the three phases?
  • What can you commit to doing to ensure you approach change and conflict in a more emotionally intelligent way?    
  • If you are not sure how you respond, ask friends, family members, and colleagues what they observe about your behaviours when under stress.

The purpose of this activity is to learn more about your default responses to stress, change and conflict and to put in place strategies to address those unhelpful responses or behaviours that impact us and those around us.
