Let's Talk While
 Your Life Improves

I help you Entertainers go from stage fright to bringing your performance to a completely new level!

Those who have stage fright won’t succeed

  • When you perform nervous it can lead to monotony causing the audience to lose interest.
  • You can’t gather yourself, structure thoughts, look awkward, feel ridiculous...
  • You don’t know what to do with your hands.
  • And when recording a video you make 10 duplicates, and don’t dare to publish it, because you hope maybe it will work without a video.

Imagine yourself able to remain calm, clear headed, stress-free, and positive even in the midst of handling work and life’s greatest challenges as a performer.

What becomes possible for you, in achievement, in peace of mind, wellness, in your relationships, and while entertaining?

Build Powerful Habits with PQ Training
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 our PQ Program empowers you to do

  • By committing yourself to this PQ program and PQ coaching sessions you will inevitable get rid of discomfort, eliminate this fear of the camera and public performing.
  • You will engage and get attention retention, and gain on vocal parameters.
  • You will be more able to structure and prepare a performance perfectively, sing more convincingly overall.
  • You will also response on uncomfortable and  provoketive audience, and become impervious to criticism.
  • Your fellow musicians will admire your entertainment skills.
  • Live broadcasts and performances will ultimately bring joy and attract new fans.


Take a step towards something innovative

See you in the PQ program, see you in the PQ coaching sessions.

How it works more

How It Works

Daily Practice
15 minutes/day 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.

Weekly Focus
Weekly hour-long video delivers 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.

Measurable Progress
You’ll feel motivated through instant feedback on exactly how much progress you’re making towards building the three core muscles of mental fitness. Brain rewiring may be visible in MRI imaging within eight weeks.

Community Support
We help you establish a support and accountability group with other program participants. Research has shown this to be a critical success factor for establishing lasting new positive habits of the mind.

Fight Stage Fright

Six-Week Foundation – Build your foundation of mental fitness by strengthening three critical mental muscles to shift the balance of power from your inner Saboteurs (your negative self) to your inner Sage (your positive self) - more

Week 1 - Self-Command Muscle
Through a breakthrough process called PQ Reps, you get to boost your Self-Command muscle. Each PQ Rep only takes 10 seconds and can be done with eyes open or closed. With each PQ Rep, you develop greater mastery over your own mind, quiet the negative, and activate the positive region of your brain.

Week 2-3 - Saboteur Interceptor Muscle
You get to intercept your top Saboteurs the moment they try to hijack your thoughts, feelings, and actions. In preparation for this practice, you get to expose the lies, limiting beliefs and damage of your Saboteurs, so they can no longer fool you into thinking they are helpful to you.

Week 4-6 - Sage Muscle
You get to practice the Sage Perspective that every problem or challenge can be converted into a gift and opportunity. And you get to generate the gift through the 5 Sage Powers of Empathize, Explore, Innovate, Navigate, and Activate.

FAQ more

Is this the right program for me?
This is the right program for you if you are:
a) committed to improving your performance and effectiveness dramatically while reducing stress,
b) looking for a science-based and trusted system to make it stick,
and c) willing to put in the initial effort to rewire years of mental habits that don’t serve you.

Aren't negative emotions sometimes helpful?
Some people believe that negative emotions are helpful. For example, they think stress gives them their performance edge, or beating themselves or others up is helpful for continual improvement.

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 which harm both performance and happiness.

In this program we learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert, and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm clarity, objectivity, and creativity to handle the challenge most effectively.

Who will lead the PQ Program?
Shirzad Chamine conducts each of the weekly video sessions. Shirzad will also participate daily in the exclusive online community of the program participants to answer questions, provide coaching, and cheer you on.

Shirzad is the New York Times bestselling author of Positive Intelligence, translated into 20 languages. He has been CEO of the largest coach training organization in the world and has trained faculty at Stanford and Yale business schools.

Shirzad lectures on Positive Intelligence at Stanford University and works with Stanford’s NCAA athletes. A preeminent C-suite advisor, Shirzad has coached hundreds of CEOs and their executive teams. His background includes graduate level studies in neuroscience in addition to a BA in psychology, an MS in electrical engineering, and an MBA from Stanford.

How much time and effort is required?
You’d be committing to watching a one-hour video once per week and doing a combined total of 15 minutes per day of practice guided by the Positive Intelligence app exclusively designed for this program.

This might sound like a lot of time. In fact, cumulatively, it constitutes less than 2% of your awake time for the duration of the program. Please consider that your Saboteurs are costing you far more than 2% of your time, effort, energy, and productivity. Consider how much more than 2% of time and productivity this six-weeks investment will save for years to come.

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.

Should we participate as a team?
Even though the focus of the program is individual development, team leaders often call this experience the best team building experience they have ever had. Going through this program together significantly deepens trust, helps clear the air related to recurrent team member conflicts since they’re mostly generated by Saboteurs, and gives the entire team a common framework for helping each other grow, making decisions, responding to setbacks, and managing conflicting styles and agendas.

What is included in the PQ Program?
Included  is:
Six weeks of app-guided practice, including Daily Focus & Coach Challenges
Accountability group made up of other PQ Program participants (optional)
Audiobook version of the Positive Intelligence, read by the author, Shirzad Chamine
Access to the PQ online community
Unlimited access to the PQ app for a full year

Do you offer corporate or group discounts?
Yes, we offer group discounts on the PQ Program to any group of 8 or larger. If you would like to purchase the program for your team, your employees, or any group of eight people and above, please contact us for more information.

Submit A Review

One of the best things I ever did to increase my clientele

During my first consultation with Mr.DeJong I immediately felt at ease and extremely confident in his ability to assist me in increasing my business growth at a speedy rate. After 3 months within the program I am thrilled to say sales have increased by 11%, and have exceeded a retention rate of 96%. I highly recommend anyone who has a business that has financially suffered due to covid and the economic state of the world should seriously consider using this organization. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Top recommendation!

I's so happy I found Fred!

I had a few problems with my business which I was stuck with.

Fred gave me simple and effective solutions to remedy them, so my business can continue to grow.

He's very experienced and knowledgeable for businesses ins and outs, "do's" and "don't do's".

Fred as a business coach will save you months and possible years and lots of money by catapulting you and your business where you need to be, instead of you spending your time and money on experimenting and trying to find the right solution.

He's easily worth 10x the money you will pay for his business coaching services and it will be one of best business investments you will make.

Thank you Fred so much!
