Positive Intelligence (PQ)  

I find that PQ is a great tool to create/empower reflective space as we navigate our journeys.  PQ basics include understanding that each of our brains are muscles.  These muscles include a judge fed by our saboteurs and a sage.  

Strengthening the Sage is the work of PQ 

Saboteurs include: people pleaser, hyper achiever, restless, controller, avoider, victim, stickler, hyper rational and hyper vigilant.

We also have sage parts of our brain.  

Sage powers are empathize, navigate, innovate, explore and activate.

Can you believe that the part of our brains that is most active becomes dominate?   


When the Sage part of our brains are the strongest, we are equipped for things like seeing Jesus more clearly, joining Jesus more powerfully on the journey and building healthy relationship.  

Do you suppose there is a need for more Sage in your world today?


In the next few articles, I will share more about how PQ is making a difference in people’s lives, relationships and with teams.

For now:  Pay extra attention.  How is your judge impacting your relationships and teams?  How is your sage impacting your relationships and teams?

Blessings in all you do.
