The Importance of Social Awareness and Practicing Empathy

We can’t always expect to understand what people are thinking or experiencing, but it certainly helps to try. When you’re able to express greater levels of empathy, it cultivates a deeper sense of trust within your team. People are much more likely to engage with those they feel more comfortable with, and it leads to improved teamwork and collaboration.

Aside from that, empathy helps you form more well-rounded business strategies. You can’t expect to have any idea what kind of products or services to provide if you aren’t in touch with the needs of your customers. When you and your employees have a more united understanding of empathy and how to apply it in the workplace, everyone benefits from it.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. This program enables teams to maximize both performance and well-being simultaneously by focusing on the root-level muscles that impact both.

Improving Your Relationships Strengthens All Areas of Your Life

We all know how important communication is, so why don’t more people place that same level of importance on relationships? If you want to make a real impact, you need to do more than simply get a message across.

Understanding how to cultivate and maintain relationships within teams is crucial to the success of any business organization. So, it’s important that you give your employees the tools they need to show up as their best selves when they work for you. Improving relationships at work naturally puts people in a better position to succeed in other areas of their lives and often leads to heightened confidence and a stronger sense of self.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. In fact, 83% of participants reported improved self-confidence and 85% reported a significant increase in happiness.

How to Achieve Business Success by Harnessing Your Team’s Potential

You’ve probably heard of “self-sabotage” before, but have you ever thought about it in the context of a team or entire organization? If you want your business to succeed, you need to make sure your employees have the necessary tools to mitigate conflict, balance work responsibilities, and manage stress in a healthy way.

The more equipped your team is, the more space you give them to reach their potential. Instead of allowing friction in the workplace, it’s important that you foster a work environment that emphasizes communication, understanding, and teamwork. When everyone’s on the same page and working towards the same goal, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program, where they will learn how to maximize both performance and well-being simultaneously by focusing on the root-level muscles that impact both.

Improved Conflict Management Leads to Better Relationships

No workplace is free of conflict, but it’s how you and your team manage it that matters. Poor conflict management can lead to:

  • Decrease in productivity
  • Low company morale
  • Increase in employee turnover (decrease in employee retention)

On the other hand, when you invest in conflict management education and give your team the right tools, you remove several barriers to productivity. With a well-rounded approach to conflict management, you can expect:

  • Improved team productivity
  • Positive work environment
  • Open communication

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. In fact, 84% of participants reported that they felt significantly better at conflict management after starting the program, and 92% feel that they’re much better at teamwork and collaboration.

Imposter Syndrome: The Impact of Your Inner Voice

Sometimes we use our inner voice to guide us to make better decisions, sometimes intuition can be more valuable than facts. When it comes to something like impostor syndrome, you’re usually stuck dealing with a vicious cycle of anxiety, things turning out okay, and attributing that success to something other than your ability.

When you deal with constant bouts of anxiety and fear like this, it’s not uncommon for you to advance into depression. The reason why it’s so hard to get out of this cycle is that the more you accomplish, the stronger the “impostor” feeling becomes.

It might be hard for you to pinpoint exactly where impostor syndrome affects your current life, so here are some examples:

  • You’ve moved into a leadership role and feel uncomfortable when referred to by your newer title as if you didn’t earn it.
  • You might have a hard time promoting yourself or your business because you feel like those who do have more experience than you.
  • You often find yourself in a state of indecision because of your lack of confidence in your role.

While these feelings are difficult to navigate and hard to talk about, you don’t have to do it alone.

Registration is now open for the next 6-week Positive Intelligence® Mental Fitness Foundation program starting November 12, 2022. The program is based on Shirzad Chamine’s Positive Intelligence® work.

You will learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm, clarity, objectivity and creativity to handle life’s challenges more effectively.

Discover what’s holding you back: Identifying Imposter Syndrome in Female Leaders

According to a recent study, a whopping 90% of female employees struggle with impostor syndrome. What’s even more shocking? This happens to people regardless of their level of expertise, it’s a psychological pattern that often isn’t noticed until the symptoms start to become overwhelming. In fact, only about 25% of those surveyed are aware of their symptoms.

Females in leadership positions deal with enough pressure, so recognizing impostor syndrome can help you stay on track and focus on business goals. Impostor syndrome presents itself in different ways, some of the symptoms include:

  • Believing your success is based on luck.
  • You might think people will “discover” that you are somehow unqualified for your position, even though you are.
  • Self-doubt and thinking that you don’t deserve the praise you receive.
  • Constant fear that you are going to disappoint people.
  • Setting far-fetched goals and being hard on yourself when you (realistically) fall short.

The only way to grow as a leader is to face your mental challenges head-on, but it isn’t easy to do it alone.

Remove Your Hand From The Hot Stove

As you know, your ability to feel pain is very helpful. If you touch a hot stove it’s good to feel pain so you’re alerted to the danger to your body and quickly remove your hand.

Similarly, negative emotions like stress, fear, anger, disappointment, guilt and shame are extremely helpful to alert you that something needs your attention.  But once you have benefited from the alert, it’s harmful for you to stay in those negative emotions.

Staying stressed, afraid, disappointed, guilty, or ashamed makes it harder for you to think clearly or take the most effective action to deal with the problem.

Your sage (positive) mind is much more capable of being creative and insightful or taking calm, clear-headed, decisive action to deal with the challenge that lead to those negative emotions.

So, if you find yourself staying in the negative emotions for more than a second, your saboteurs are keeping your hand on the hot stove and complaining why life is so hard.   

Registration is now open for the next 6-week Positive Intelligence® Mental Fitness Foundation program starting January 21, 2023. The program is based on Shirzad Chamine’s Positive Intelligence® work.

Master Your Mind, Master Your Life

Imagine what would be possible if you could choose:

  • to not stress out over what you can’t control
  • push away self-doubts
  • recover from disappointments immediately and
  • spend little time in anger, regret, or blame.

This is absolutely possible with mental fitness training. In as little as 10 seconds, you can:

1. Develop greater mastery over your own mind
2. Quiet the negative and
3. Activate the positive region of your brain.

In fact, MRI research found that within 6-8 weeks of mental fitness training the brain’s grey matter:

  • increased in the Sage PQ brain region and
  • decreased in the Saboteur “survival brain” region
