Nine Ways We Self Sabotage

  • Based on Shirzad Chamine’s New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence  and Stanford University lectures.
  • The research included 500,000 participants, world-class athletes, and leaders from every Fortune 100 company. 
  • Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate stress and negative emotions in the way you handle work and life’s challenges. They sabotage your potential for both happiness and performance.
  • A key to Mental Fitness (performance and happiness) 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.

  • The nine Saboteurs are the Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, and Victim


"Experienced leaders know that most change initiatives fizzle because of our mental Saboteurs. Shirzad gives us the tools to conquer these Saboteurs and create positive change that lasts."

Dean Morton – former COO Hewlett Packard HP

“The Positive Intelligence (PQ) model is a brilliant breakthrough as it defines, measures, and improves your awareness of your own performance and happiness. It also helps solve the mystery of why so many smart people still fail to be successful.”

Jim Lanzone, Chief Digital Officer, CBS
