Thrive with Positive Intelligence

Do you want to improve your mental fitness in order to thrive instead of survive?

Imagine having the personal attention of one-to-one coaching, the energy of small-group training and the day-to-day accessibility of an online digital training into one program.

It is an impactful program for building the mental fitness you need to deal with the challenges of life. It not only teaches you how your brain works but it actually trains it to intercept and re-wire negative emotions into positive ones through the practice of 10 sec. mindfulness exercises(PQ reps). It is offered by Steliana van de Rijt-Economu, in partnership with Shirzad Chamine, Stanford lecturer and bestselling author. It leverages Steliana’s experience in coaching women leaders and Shirzad’s years of research in the fields of neuroscience, positive psychology and factor analysis.

By the end of this program you will have:
  • Understood your personal saboteurs & how to intercept them
  • Improved your mental self-command to quickly recover from any negative emotions such as, mother guilt or frustration, allowing your positive Sage brain to take over
  • Developed a personal strategy to help you move from the fight-flight-freeze reactions to leveraging your unique power to empathize, innovate, explore, navigate and activate.
The training was easy to combine with my fulltime job and as mother of two small kids. It gave me insight in how to increase my positive mindset in all kind of situations and due to the PQ app numerous of easy to use tools to activate this mindset. Steliana is a good listener and asks the right questions in a very pleasant way. This way I felt comfortable to have open and honest conversations with her on my practice. This has been very helpful. It was a true positive experience.I recommend Steliana as professional career coach and as trainer of the Thrive -Positive Intelligence 6 weeks program.

‘The program helped me grow professionally as well as helping me with matters in my personal life. I really liked the weekly conversations under the trusted guidance of Steliana. Steliana is a star in asking the right questions and leading the way by giving examples from her own journey. It felt very safe opening up to her and the group. It was definitely a training I would recommend and I will continue using the tools it gave me. I learned how to recognize my saboteurs and how to turn them around in something positive. Instead of seeing them as something I had to hide from, I gained strength from them.

Alice Sonne, Jurist at Cityhall Amsterdam, The Netherlands

“ The Thrive with PI program enabled me to better understand myself and to actively influence my thoughts and behaviours. The coaching conversations with Steliana were pleasant and impactful. She creates an open and safe space, and ask the right questions and the (PI) framework truly helps to turn your intent into action.”

Lydwine  Janssen, HR Manager  at NS, The Netherlands

“ The biggest insights I’ve gained are how much I’ve been able to harness my mind by using my body. This has opened up a new sense of calm within me and with others. Steliana is very professional and isn’t afraid to share her ideas and experiences – which have been very beneficial to me in my own journey.”

Peter Buijs, LNG Freight Trader at Shell Trading, England

‘I was happy and grateful to participate in the Positive Intelligence & Mental Fitness Coaching program Steliana offered. Both the group coaching sessions as well as the one on one sessions were excellent. Steliana is a great listener and she makes small, but very useful suggestions to make improvements in your daily habits or communication with others. The program and the app that comes with it provides you with insights and simple tools to use in the future when you feel stressed, overwhelmed or insecure. Practice through the app is easy and very intuitive. There are some great exercises and I liked the coaching sessions a lot. To discuss with and learn from an excellent coach and the other great participants was very worthwhile. I recommend both the program as well as coaching by Steliana.’

Inge Braspening, Process Engineering Team Lead at NESTE, The Netherlands

‘This program was built for results but mostly also for sustainable results. The combination of  a book, the app, a live coach plus the POD group helped both for accountability and inspiration.”

Elisabeth van Ebbenhorst Tengbergen, Senior Consultant at Acre, The Netherlands
