A Personal look at what might be “Sabotaging” your Professional Career Goals.

This interactive workshop will introduce you to Positive Intelligence™, the foundation of principles that will help you achieve your true success and personal fulfillment. Written by best-selling author, Shirzad Chamine, Positive Intelligence™ or PQ for short, PQ is the self-discipline to change from being a Reactor (Saboteur behavior), move to Neutral, and then choose to Respond with Wisdom (Sage response). This is a calmer, more deliberate approach and will rewire your brain and create better interactions at work, career movement and yes, personal relationships at home. 

PQ builds mental strength in a 7-week program. But this program begins with identifying the SABOTEUR. Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions as you handle everyday challenges. They are automatic patterns in your mind for how you think, feel, and respond. Your Saboteurs cause all your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. There are 10 habitual thought patterns or Saboteurs.

During this one-hour session, we will be working in our Saboteur Groups to review how we might experience these negative emotions when we look at a Career Change either as applying for a new job or asking for a promotion.

The Question for the Group to work out:  Pretend that you want a promotion at your job or move to another department or you are applying for your dream job.  How might you potentially “Sabotage” your best efforts.

There are 10 Saboteurs:

Avoider, the Judge, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim 

• How might you “sabotage” your chances of getting a new promotion or new job?

• Think on the other person’s side, what verbal cues may be apparent regarding your Saboteur? 

• What mistakes might happen due to the Saboteur?

• What kind of person/manager/interviewer would make you uneasy with your type of Saboteur? How will they know you are uneasy?
