Fine tune your trajectory with our scientific method and expertise and start your study journey equipped with a deeper knowledge about yourself, and the confidence that you’ve made the right choices.

Young Professional

Congratulations, you’ve graduated! Now what? Starting your professional life without insights on your strengths and weaknesses is like taking off on a journey without a map. Trial and error can cost you years in the wrong place doing the wrong thing. We can scientifically assess your profile using our five PQ elements, and determine which direction is the path to your professional happiness.

Experienced Professional

You’ve been a part of the corporate workforce for a while, and you’ve been wondering: do I just have to put up with the everyday frustrations of my work environment and the things that hold me back, or is it possible to find solutions, to build a happier, more successful and ultimately more satisfied life? Using scientific methods, we shed light on problem areas that are affecting your situation and offer deep-level guidance and insights to help you along the path to professional satisfaction and contentment.

We base our methods and procedures on 5 scientific and "to-the-point" main components. These are The Five Elements of PQ.

The Five Elements of PQ

The five elements of our PQ Model have different neurobiological and behavioral correlates which are dynamically applicable to professional conditions.

Professional Mentalizing

The ability to understand the mental processes of oneself and other people, and to be aware of and manage our own and others’ emotions, thoughts, and intentions, so that we can communicate and interact with those around us. It allows us to see the world from someone else’s point of view, understand that people can have different perceptions compared to ours, and anticipate their future feelings and behaviors.

Executive Functions

The ability to control and manage the brain itself, including planning and organizing its many activities. This administrating function takes place in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which helps with planning, organizing, controlling and synchronizing complex bits of information.

Mental Activity

Can be defined as the brain’s stability in performance. Our brains show some degree of fluctuation depending on internal and external factors – for example, we can maintain our focus for long hours one day whereas we can be easily distracted the next. Examples of some factors that contribute to fluctiations in professional performance may include medical factors such as thyroid problems or anemia, life style factors such as sleep or physical activity, eating habits, toxic behavior at work, effects of seasonal change, etc.

Neuroplasticity

Can be defined as mental flexibility. It allows us to learn new information or adapt to changing conditions. It’s the primary player when our jobs demand new solutions or we need to learn new things in order to continue performing well.

Professional Self

Refers to the existence of a person as a professional. Internal professional self is about a person’s career goals, values, principles, work ethic, and interests. External professional-self includes being a role model, creating a professional image in the eyes of others, and one’s professional network.
