Building Resilience Through Positive Intelligence  - How to stop self-sabotaging 

Do you ever feel like you are sabotaging yourself but don't know how or why? We all self-sabotage, and it can be so automatic that we don’t even realize it. When this destructive thinking continues, it causes us to struggle and draws us further into negativity and self-defeat.  

Shirzad Chamine, executive coach and author of Positive Intelligence (2012), identifies 10 voices in our heads (saboteurs) that generate negative emotions and negatively influence the way we deal with life's challenges. These saboteurs represent the patterns in the way we think, feel and behave. They promote stress, anxiety, frustration, unhappiness, and self-doubt and have a huge impact on our well-being.  Different people are affected by different types of saboteurs. The good news is that saboteurs are not fixed for life. They can be changed and weakened by boosting the positive muscles in our minds.  

Learn how to silence your inner saboteurs with positive thinking. In this workshop we will explore different tools and exercises you can do daily to strengthen your resilience and re-train your brains to strengthen positive thinking once again.
