Isn’t it true that negative emotions are sometimes helpful?
Feeling pain for a split second when your hand touches a hot stove is indeed useful, delivering an important alert. But your Saboteurs keep your hand on the hot stove, continuing to feel negative emotions that harm both performance and happiness.

How much time and effort is required?
How is this different from reading the book?
You’d never learn to ride a bicycle by reading a book about it. You’ll be asked to read the first eight chapters of the book while participating in the program. The book provides the research foundation and introduces the tools. The video session guides you through experiential exercises that help you personalize the tools to your own personality and needs. And the app coaches you to practice one tool at a time in the context of your own daily work and life challenges.
Can I participate with my team?
Even though the focus of the program is individual development, going through this program together significantly deepens trust and helps clear the air related to recurring conflicts since they’re mostly generated by Saboteurs. It gives the entire group a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas.
