Review:

I ve worked closely with Shirzad and experienced him walking the PQ walk. Most change initiatives fizzle because of our mental Saboteurs. Shirzad gives us the tools to conquer them and create positive change that lasts. This is a must-read for any individual or team serious about unleashing peak performance.
--Dean Morton, former COO, Hewlett-Packard (HP) (04/01/2012)"

Working with Shirzad has had a profound impact on me. His tools and techniques for raising PQ are simple, concrete, pragmatic, and incredibly effective. They help me remain focused on what truly matters and grounded amidst the swirl of daily life. This book is a gift. Make sure you share it.
--Jim Lanzone, President, CBS Interactive (CBS Corporation) (04/01/2012)"

I have worked with Shirzad personally and seen him work with many other presidents and CEOs. His impact is often gamechanging for a team, and life changing for the individuals. When a coach raises a team's PQ, it can quickly shift every player from good to extraordinary. The player's skills are the same, but he has learned to command those voices in his head to his advantage. That makes all the difference in performance. Positive Intelligence is a must-have for anyone who leads or coaches a team.
--Jed York, President and CEO, San Francisco 49ers (04/01/2012)

Developing a personal leadership model is one of the most practical, energy-saving, and stress-reducing things that anyone can do for themselves. Positive Intelligence makes that job easier by focusing on mastering the two most critical voices in everyone's heads - Saboteur, and Sage. The best news is that leaders at every level can use its approach to get, and stay, on a more "winning" trajectory. Thank you, Shirzad, for writing such a usable, lively, and compelling book.

Positive Intelligence has the potential to change your life and transform your business. A Real Game Changer.
--James D. White, Chairman, President and CEO, Jamba Juice (04/01/2012)

Positive Intelligence ranks in the top 3 most influential business books I have ever read. If I could give only one book to the thousands of team members in my organization to enhance their performance, it would be this book.
Positive Intelligence has had a lasting and transformative impact on me and others in my organization. It is a powerful framework for bringing out the best in everyone and quieting the worst. When you increase someone's PQ, they will not only perform much better but also feel a whole lot more personal fulfillment and less stress along the way.
--Lisa Stevens, Region President, Wells Fargo Bank (04/01/2012)

This is a very innovative and important application of original psychological thinking to the business field. The Positive Intelligence model can provide a solid basis for bringing meaning and significant change to one's life. The strategies for identifying and dealing with Saboteur and Sage while harnessing untapped powers of the mind have proved highly effective in the business setting, and might well be applied elsewhere. Read this book if you want to create major positive change in yourself, your loved ones, or your team.
--Crittenden E. Brookes, M.D. Ph.D., Stanford University. Distinguished Life Fell (04/01/2012)

Shirzad delivers a simple, do-able, groundbreaking set of exercises that can help you develop your "performance" muscles, increase your PQ score, and gain access to previously untapped mental resources. Working out was never so rewarding or so much fun! So if you're ready to get even better, get this new book - today.
--Marshall Goldsmith - million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers, M (04/01/2012)
