Looking after our mind is as important as looking after our body!

Your  mind is constantly sabotaging your potential for both performance and happiness. All your negative emotions, including stress, are the result of self-sabotage. All this is based on automatic and habitual mind patterns, each with its own voice, beliefs, and assumptions that we have learned and reinforced over time. These happen automatically, controlled by our sub-conscious. It doesn't mean we can't change them, but we have to start by recognising them before we have the choice of replacing them with something else.

Most attempts at positive change fail because we stop at insight and don’t build habits. Sustained change towards a more positive mind requires laying down neural pathways to form new habits through consistent daily practice. And that’s what the Mental Fitness Programme empowers you to do.

The programme is a mix of training, practice and coaching, it is supported by an App as well as weekly meetings. The core app-based element runs over 7 weeks. I usually provide an initial intro/coaching session before and close off with another coaching session.

The application of Mental Fitness is broad and foundational, and often it is compared to an 'operating system' - a few examples:

  • Leadership

  • Performance

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Stress

  • Conflict Management

  • Wellness

  • Career Planning

  • Relationships

  • Creativity

When we look at the impact on Teams - when levels of mental fitness are high, teams are better able to moderate the impact of negative emotions and, as a result, are less vulnerable to stress, disengagement, and burnout.

I have been working with the Positive Intelligence framework for years, achieving great results, insights and behavioural shifts - as individuals and within teams. Try it out!


Some questions answered

? - What does Mental Fitness mean?

Mental Fitness is your ability to cope with life's challenges with a more positive mindset and less stress by strengthening that part of the brain that serves you - away from self-sabotage towards emotional well-being and more intentional behaviour.

The Mental Fitness framework is a breakthrough, well researched and science based programme that combines training, practice and coaching with the help of an App and weekly meetings. It is the work of Shirzad Chamine and Positive Intelligence. To find out more, just book a call with me to explore,

? - What does a Mental Fitness Programme look like?

The programme is a mix of training, practice and coaching, it is supported by an App as well as weekly meetings. The core app-based element runs over 7 weeks. I usually provide an initial intro/coaching session before and close off with another coaching session.

The app-based element is made up of weekly focus sessions in video format, a deep experiential exploration of the week’s focus. You’ll feel inspired and energized to practice during the week in order to sustain the benefits experienced during the video sessions. Daily 15 minutes of app-guided practice enables you to build stronger mental muscles (neural pathways). These exercises are bite-sized to fit your busy schedule and customized based on how you self-sabotage. Once a week, we meet to discuss, explore and share the learned intertwined with coaching. This is either done 1 on 1 or within the team / group depending on what has been agreed.

? - What is the difference between doing this as an individual versus a team?

When you go through the Mental Fitness Programme as a Leader, the focus is on you. When a whole team goes through this, the focus is still on each individual but also brings in the impact on team dynamics and relationships. It builds a very strong trust and foundation.

What clients say about our Mental Fitness work together


I have had the pleasure of completing an eight-week intensive coaching program with Uschi, which has turned out to be a real game changer for me personally. Uschi always takes time to listen and consider, ensuring that coaching time is maximized and tailored to the needs of the moment. I would warmly recommend Uschi to anyone who is looking for personal coaching and the opportunity to improve their positive intelligence.

< Richard P. >


The programme provided unexpected deep introspection on myself and why I have those reactions / attitudes. It now greatly helps me everyday. Additionally, Uschi is really amazing, I loved my sessions with her, she provided real precious help when I needed it the most.

< Sylvain P. >


This programme hits the spot when it comes to developing a positive / successful attitude. Primarily because it positively impacts the roots on which you can build the version you want to become. Being able to understand the reason why I respond to a situation or a person or myself in a negative way in itself was priceless. To top it this program gave me super easy and practical tools which enables me to switch those negative emotions / reactions to positive outcomes. The operative words being "easy and practical".

< Jasbir V. >


This programme provides a fresh and to some extend spiritual approach to business engagement. it is exactly what you would want from leadership coaching. the impact it had on me was a reduction in stress, and to know more on how to get the best out of situations and people
