We're creating A Fun & Affordable Mental Fitness Gym for IT Leaders & their Teams

We help you recharge, refocus, and get stronger so that you can Lead your Team with Ease & Flow

We’ve been there – We get IT – We’ve got your back, even when others don’t.

We stand by you when things get tough when your goals seem out of reach when you need someone to talk to so that you can stand tall, calm, balanced, clear-headed, and confident in your power – in any leadership role & situation.

Founded by Ali Farahani, a former CIO/CTO & Leadership Coach, and Lucie Tesarova, a PQ Mental Fitness Trainer, our mission is to create a fun, affordable, science-based & technology-backed Mental Fitness Gym for IT leaders & their teams so that they can improve their performance, wellbeing, and relationship with ease & flow.

Victorious warriors win first in their minds, and then go to war. Defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win. 

Sun Tzu, Author of the Art of War (544 BCE - 496 BCE)
  • Does going to work feel like waging a daily war at times?
  • Feeling like the attacks are coming from all possible angles?
  • Do you wish that work instead of war would feel like a play?

If you are

  • Tired of being attacked – by your outer or inner enemies of judgments, doubts, and disempowering thoughts,
  • Feeling isolated, lacking support
  • Wishing for a more positive circle of peers & mentors
  • Ready and motivated to turn the war into a game with our support

… then join us! 

Allow yourself to be supported so that you can support and lead powerfully your teams and organization.

With us, you can become victorious. And turn the war into a play.

Start with your inner game first. 

  • We train you.
  • We guide you.
  • We support you.

So then you can go, and lead powerfully from within – no matter in what environment you happen to be.

With us, you are not in the fight alone. 

We have your back.

And we make you win and transform not just your inner game, but also the cultural game in your company.

Ready for your inner game training to begin? 


Webinar: CIO’s Inner Battles

3-Steps to Master Your Mind & Emerge Victorious

Webinar: CIO’s Inner Battles


Veteran CIO/CTO Ali Farahani will show you the ten hidden enemies of CIOs based on the Positive Intelligence® research of New York Times bestselling author and Stanford lecturer Shirzad Chamine. The research includes 500,000 participants from 50 countries.

There is a battle going on

As an IT leader, there is a constant battle going on in your mind. A war between the powers of the dark and forces of the light. A war that you, if not careful, will lose. And when you lose this war, it will cost you handsomely.

You can’t afford to lose iT!

  • If you lose this battle, you’ll lose your confidence, your influence.
  • If you lose this battle, say goodbye to your peak performance and well-being. 

Why are you losing this battle?

You are losing this war because your brilliant analytical mind constantly hijacks your awesomeness and sabotages you, and it does it in ten distinct ways.

Your enemies are closer than you think.

Who Is iT For?

This webinar is for CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, IT directors, and IT managers who want to elevate their leadership effectiveness and lead confidently.

Why Should You Attend

If you want to improve your performance, well-being, and influence, you need to attend this webinar.

In this exclusive CIO MindFittery Event by Veteran CIO/CTO Ali Farahani , you will learn how to move from self-sabotage towards self-actualization using neuroscience techniques of the Positive Intelligence®, a science-based and technology-backed operating system for mental fitness. These techniques are often described as life-changing.

What You Will Learn

Did you know that you have no weaknesses, just strengths?

Saboteurs are your strengths turned against you. They are the voices in your head that create self-doubt, anger, fear, frustration, anxiety, disconnect, stress, and unhappiness. These inner tendencies make you think, feel, say, and do things that are not aligned with who you really are. These thoughts stop you in your tracks. Know that they are not you. The old tendencies of our thinking, “Saboteurs”, tell you lies, big and small, about who you are and what you and others are capable of. They distort reality. They pretend to be your friends, but they are your true enemies.

You get stronger, more resilient, and happier when you weaken your Saboteurs.

In this unique CIO MindFittery Event, you will learn the neuroscience behind each of these saboteurs. Also, you will leave the webinar with an easy & applicable 3-Step mental fitness technique to master your mind and become victorious.

  • How your brain is creating stress, and how you can stay calm, clear-headed, and laser-focused, amid great challenges in just 3 potent steps.
  • The ten ways of self-sabotages and which way is yours.
  • The neuroscience of happiness, its relation to peak performance, and a 10-second powerful technique to activate your “right” mind & build your Emotional Intelligence and Mental Fitness muscles.
  • The “Three Gifts Technique” and how to use it to convert failures and setbacks into gifts and opportunities.
  • The mental muscle that gives great leaders their edge and how to grow them through a few minutes of daily practice.
  • How to help your team identify their saboteurs and ways to create a trusting and high performing team environment

Before You Attend

Before attending this highly impactful and life-changing webinar, we encourage you to take the following Free PQ Assessment. Our keynote speaker will reference this assessment during the event. It will generate more value for you.



IT and technology leaders have brilliant minds that can analyze and process vast quantities of complex data. No doubt about the high level of their IQ! 

However, what has made them successful technologists, is not helping them become great people leaders. A high EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is necessary for influencing and inspiring people, traits that make good leaders great. When you don’t nurture your EQ, it creates a lose-lose for everyone, as your brilliant ideas end up often misunderstood by others, your budgets and requests don’t get easily approved and your efforts end up not appreciated. 


With Positive Intelligence research based on neuroscience, cognitive behavior psychology, performance science, and positive psychology, combined with technology, you can now improve your mental fitness (and with it strengthen your Emotional Intelligence) significantly within 6 weeks of practice. 

98% of our Positive Intelligence® program participants experience EQ growth – and the changes are recognizable already within 6-8 weeks. 

Sign up today for the live webinar Zoom session, and launch your journey to the next level of your powerful iT leadership, peak performance, and happiness.
