Strengthen your Mental Fitness in 8 Weeks • Go from Self-Sabotage to Self-Mastery • Tackle Today’s Leadership Challenges using Mental Fitness


I help high achieving professionals respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than a negative mindset!

Experience the IMPACT in your:

  • Peak Performance
  • Peace of Mind/Wellness
  • Healthy Relationships

  Which of these statements sound like you?

I am feeling increased stress and uncertainty

I find myself not moving forward as fast as I know I can

I procrastinate more than I should

I am not as happy as I used to be

I have moved from overloaded to overwhelmed

I would like to experience ease and flow in all areas of my life

I beat myself up for things that are outside of my control

I judge myself and others harshly

I take on the stress of others around me

I am ready for some guided help

If this sounds like you, then this program may be exactly the solution you’ve been looking for.

A key to Mental Fitness is to weaken the internal Saboteurs who generate all your “negativity” in the way they respond to challenges.
Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, regret, shame, guilt, and unhappiness.

Saboteurs include:

      • The Judge
      • The Controller
      • The Avoider
      • The Victim
      • The Stickler
      • and 5 Others

Start increasing your Positive Intelligence by taking the free saboteur assessment. This assessment will tell you which of your saboteurs are most active for you personally.

    * There is no obligation. The button below will also take you to our partner’s website for the assessment.

    80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness. 

    The great news? With recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and technology, you can now improve your mental fitness significantly within 6-8 weeks of practice. 

    The results? Dramatically improved performance and productivity and a calm, clear and happier mind.


    {At the beginning of this program, I did not know what was possible…All I knew was I needed to be intentional about growing my Sage muscles and diminish my saboteurs…I fully embraced and committed myself to do this during a very busy time in my life…Time and time again the videos and audio exercises….reminded me to be patient, understand I was building something within, empathy toward myself and others and, of course, becoming aware of my judge and other saboteurs. I still have work to do and have the resources to continue on this journey of building healthy relationships, bringing my best self to whatever I do and finding peace and harmony..

    {This has been the most impactful training I have ever experienced. You develop powerful mental muscles to deal with challenges with much less stress and greater clarity, creativity, and resilience. Every professional would benefit greatly from this.

    {Today I noticed myself stopping to enjoy moments that I'd normally have rushed through. Before starting PQ, I often found myself wishing for the next thing, whatever that was. The next meal, the next party, the next meeting, the next deadline. I never felt satisfied. Today, I truly felt happiness in small moments with my family...I am patiently looking forward to seeing the results at the end of our 8 weeks, but I'm in no hurry to get there.

    {I would highly encourage other professionals to look into the PQ program and coaching with Kathy. I feel like several of my coworkers and close friends struggle with similar issues (imposter syndrome, struggling to make sense of why we react so viscerally to specific people/actions, how to build better/meaningful relationships etc.) Kathy and the PQ program have helped me work though some of this and I feel more inspired to continue working on myself with the tools learned.

    {Kathy was a great executive coach at a time when the environment with COVID and remote working was taking the world to new places. Managing a team remotely brought about new challenges and the strategies and tools that Kathy shared helped me to best support my team, clients and business overall!

    Hi, I’m Kathy Pearce.

    For years I dreamed of a fulfilling career and took what I thought were the right steps to find it – “to ‘have it all’. I am a true Seattleite – born and raised. I am a wife, a mother, and have lived though, and overcome, many of the same life challenges as you. With over 30 years in corporate and small business, I just couldn’t do it anymore. It was time for real change – no more settling for the status quo.

    Now I’m a Professional Leadership & Mindset Coach helping people find deeper meaning, purpose, and fulfillment without compromising who they are and what matters most to them. One of the best strategies for success you can employ, is to partner with both a leadership and mental fitness coach. That’s where I come in. By focusing on building 3 core mental muscles, we are rewiring the brain at the root level rather than treating symptoms.

    The 8 Weeks Towards Positive Intelligence

    WEEK 1

    Welcome and program introduction:
    Get clear on your goals and desired outcomes for the program and recognize what might derail your practice and how you will manage with it. Meet your group and decide the working norms for the group.

    WEEK 2

    Establish a self-command practice:
    Master implementing innovative 10-second exercises called PQ Reps that boost your self-command skills. Self-command is key to intercepting unhelpful mental habits and building new neural pathways to respond rather than react.

    WEEK 3

    Intercept the judge saboteur:
    Learn how to intercept and weaken the most damaging saboteur, the judge. Discover how self-judgment and judging others and circumstances is a key source of stress and self-limiting performance.

    WEEK 4

    Intercept accomplice saboteurs:
    Take the saboteur assessment and learn to intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your judge saboteurs: avoider, controller, hyper-achiever, hyper-rational, hyper-vigilant, pleaser, restless, stickler, victim. Expose your accomplice saboteur’s hidden lies, limiting beliefs and negative patterns.

    WEEK 5

    Shift from saboteur to sage mindset:
    Strengthen your sage, the counterpart to your saboteurs. Your sage lives in an entirely different region of your brain, generates all your positive emotions, and achieves peak performance through a calm and clear mind.

    WEEK 6

    Strengthen the sage:
    Cultivate the five sage powers (empathy, exploration, innovation, navigation, and activation) that form the emotional intelligence competencies crucial to success. Learn how to shift your mindset to see any situation as an opportunity.

    WEEK 7

    Practice the sage powers:
    Use your sage’s navigation and activation powers to take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action aligned with meaning and purpose. Discover how your sage generates your highest performance while enjoying every step of the process.

    WEEK 8

    Sustain the Momentum:
    Learn to continue using your PQ tools for a variety of work and life applications to solidify peak performance, effective communication, stress management, conflict mitigation, and relationship building.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is this the right program for me?

    This is the right program for you if you are:
    a) committed to improving your performance and effectiveness dramatically while reducing stress,
    b) looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick, and
    c) willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you.

    Aren't negative emotions sometimes helpful?

    Some people believe that negative emotions are helpful. For example, they think stress gives them their performance edge, or beating themselves or others up is helpful for continual improvement.

    Feeling pain for a split second when your hand touches a hot stove is indeed useful, delivering an important alert. But your Saboteurs keep your hand on the hot stove, continuing to feel negative emotions which harm both performance and happiness.

    In this program we 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 the challenge most effectively.

    Who will lead the Positive Intelligence® Program?

    Kathy Pearce, CPC, PCC will personally facilitate each of the accountability group meetings and will be available to you at all times to answer questions.

    Shirzad Chamine, author of Positive Intelligence, will conduct each of the weekly video sessions. Shirzad will also participate daily in the exclusive online community of the program participants to answer questions, provide coaching, and cheer you on.

    How much time and effort is required?

    You’d be committing to watching a 1-hour video once per week and doing a combined total of 15 minutes per day of practice guided by the Positive Intelligence app exclusively designed for this program. In addition, you’ll have a weekly accountability group meeting that will last no more than an hour.

    This might sound like a lot of time. In fact, cumulatively, it constitutes less than 2% of your awake time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your Saboteurs are costing you far more than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and productivity this eight-weeks investment will save for years to come.

    How is this different from reading the book?

    You’d never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You’ll be asked to read the first 8 chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video session guides you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools to your own personality and needs. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily work and life challenges.


    What is the goal you want to achieve within the 8 week program?

    Your goal is your own. There is no right or wrong. The “why” is extremely important. Please consider what your goal is so you can share this with your accountability pod.


    Should we participate as a team?

    Even though the focus of the program is individual development, team leaders often call this experience the best team building experience they have ever had. Going through this program together significantly deepens trust, helps clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts since they’re mostly generated by Saboteurs, and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas. In most cases Leadership Teams choose to go through as an intact team due to these benefits.

    Do you have corporate or group discounts?

    Yes, if you would like to purchase the Positive Intelligence® program for your employees, or any group of 8 people and above, please schedule time with Kathy Pearce or email me at info@kathypearce.com

    Contact / Questions?

    For any questions, please schedule time with me or email me at info@kathypearce.com



    If you’re ready to dive into an 8-week program that will support your ability to react positively (rather than negatively) to any of life’s challenges, you’ve come to the right place.

    I’m grateful and excited for the opportunity to offer the flagship Positive Intelligence® program on Mental Fitness as part of my coaching practice.
