I stumbled across Shirzad in 2020 and I actually went through the programme myself. When I saw the positive changes it made I just had to bring this to my tribe. Which is why I am so excited about it. The way the whole App is put together is so clever and easy to use. For me it bought years of mindset training together in one easy learning solution. The Positive IQ reps are simple and effective. Once you become aware of your saboteurs and that they are not really you, you feel more confident and empowered. This really is a life changing programme. Personally I have been training in the enneagram for many years, which is the basis of the saboteurs. Shirzad has put over 500,000 people through this training and has excellent feedback and I can understand why. Why do I think this would benefit women in Menopause, because menopause it a time of change, it's a time to get your body back to feeling the best and this includes mindset! When we go through menopause we can find that anxiety, lack of confidence, anger and other emotions get even more prominent. Taking care of yourself not just on a physical aspect but on an mental emotional aspect too is so important.
7 weeks, every Saturday morning the new lesson will drop. Which takes 1 hour to complete. This lesson is cut up into bitesize videos and it is recommended you watch them over the weekend. Then you will receive daily prompts through the app to get working on your positive IQ muscle, the stronger your IQ muscle the less likely you are to get hijacked by self criticism (your judge or other top saboteurs)
The first week you learn innovative 10-second PQ Reps that boost your self-command. This enables you to run your brain rather than being run by your Saboteur-hijacked brain. Self-command is key to intercepting unhelpful mental habits and rewiring your brain to respond more effectively.
For this entire week, you'll intercept and weaken the most damaging Saboteur, the Judge. You discover how judging yourself, others, and circumstances is a key source of your stress and quite damaging to your performance. Most participants discover their Judge to be far more prevalent and damaging than they suspected.
This week you intercept and weaken the top accomplice to your Judge Saboteur, identified through the Saboteur Assessment from the following: Avoider, Controller, Hyper-Achiever, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Vigilant, Pleaser, Restless, Stickler, Victim.
Week 4: Shift From Saboteur to Sage
After weakening your Saboteurs, it is now time to strengthen your Sage, the counterpart to your Saboteurs. Your Sage lives in an entirely different part of your brain, generates all your positive emotions, and achieves peak performance through a calm and clear mind.
The Sage region of the brain enables 5 primary powers. Analogous to the 3 primary colors, these 5 powers recombine to form all of the emotional intelligence competencies considered crucial to professional success.
In our final week, you use your Sage's Navigate and Activate powers to take clear-headed, laser-focused, decisive action.
+++ LIVE integration sessions with Michelle Robinson. (Note these are not recorded. You are encouraged to join live)
The Live sessions take place at 12pm UK time on a Tuesday or 7PM UK time. Please select your preferred time on joining the course.
Ideally you want to aim for around 15 mins a day, this might sound a lot, but the way the prompts are set up are in 2 minute audios so it is really easy to do, whilst waiting for the kettle or on a loo break at work.
Our sabotaging behaviour is installed from an early age, so yes, it can help unravel things. But the purpose of this programme is not to go deep into the trauma but more to see how your mind sets up strategies because of it. Remember you are not broken, this programme helps you to reconnect to your inner sage. If you feel like you need deeper support through the programme then upgrade to VIP where you get 1-1 sessions with Michelle, where you can process and release anything that comes up for you during the course.
You will have the option to access your current app as is. with all the info on it that you have from the programme for a full 12 months. But if you want to move into the grow model there will be a monthly fee to do so. Which will be discussed at the end, when you have fully experienced the app and what it can do for you.
