PQ Coaching to for High-Empathy Project Managers to Beat Burnout and Overwhelm

Do you often:

    • Feel other people’s emotions strongly, even to the point of overwhelm?
    • Have a hard time turning off that empathy sometimes when rational approaches are needed?
    • Get told what a good listener you are when someone needs to talk through a challenge?
    • Often get compliments on your kindness, thoughtfulness, and/or compassion?
    • Have strong values of service and helping that make it hard to say “no”, even when you’re overloaded?
    • Find that you’re harder on yourself than others, or hold yourself to unrealistic expectations?


PQ coaching is available for individuals, teams, and custom groups (family, colleagues, etc.). Reach out today to learn more about how PQ can serve you!

The Good News:

You’re a high-empathy, heart-centered PM! Your capacity for building connections, relationships, and supporting people and teams is out of this world!

The Hard Part:

You run a high risk of (or may already be) giving so much to others you have nothing left for yourself. Your strengths, when unchecked, can leave you vulnerable to:

    • Exhaustion
    • Overwhelm
    • Burnout
    • Resentment
    • … and more

The Good News (Again):

We can work through burnout or overwhelm that you might be experiencing or, even better, prevent it from happening in the first place.

Combining groundbreaking research in neuroscience, positive and cognitive psychology, and performance science, Stanford lecturer Shirzad Charmine has created the:

Positive Intelligence® (PQ) Mental Fitness Program

Using factor analysis of over 500,000 people, PQ has identified:

    • 5 positive (Sage) mental “muscles” (i.e.: thoughts, habits, and behaviors) that help us navigate challenges
    • 10 challenging (Saboteur) mental muscles that hinder us and get us stuck in challenges

Mental fitness is a measure of the strength of your Sage versus Saboteur mental muscles. When you’re experiencing burnout the Saboteur is running wild, generating stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, and worry.

The great news is research has shown that 6 weeks of consistent practice of PQ behaviors can significantly increase your Mental Fitness by building your Sage muscles of empathy, gratitude, curiosity, creativity, self-confidence, and calm, clear-headed, laser-focused action!  

Increasing Mental Fitness has been shown to result in increased resilience, heightened emotional intelligence, improved performance, lower stress, and increased happiness. PQ is easily applied in a diverse array of professional and personal applications:


        • Team Leadership
        • Conflict Management
        • Time Management
        • Productivity
