How many of your values and beliefs are your own, and how many are imposed on you?
If your answer to the above is “I’m not sure”, maybe you can relate to some of these thoughts:
You’ve tried to live up to other people’s expectations your whole life
When you inevitably fall short (in their eyes), you blame yourself – and they do too
The people who are supposed to love you the most are sometimes the ones who trigger you the most and cause you to doubt yourself
You don’t know any other way to live because your family, your culture, your workplace, and society in general all reinforce that “this is just the way it is” and being different will hurt you
As a racialized woman (Indigenous, Black, Brown, Asian, Hispanic, Arab, Mixed Race, and anyone who doesn’t identify as white/Caucasian), you find yourself often wondering, “Is it just me? Am I crazy? Am I being ‘too sensitive’?”
As a result:
You don't feel like you can be your real self around other people.
It's like you've been trying to be what other people want you to be, instead of who you want to be.
If this sounds like you, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
I’ve had all those thoughts and more through most of my 40+ years of living. What’s even scarier is that the more I talk about it, the more women I meet who have too.
Hi. 👋🏼 I’m Rosie Yeung. I'm a Mindset Liberation Coach and JEDI Warrior (JEDI = Justice, Equity, Decolonization and Inclusion). I designed this small group coaching program to help racialized diaspora women find freedom by transforming instead of conforming. I've experienced this first hand, because I'm one of them! I’m a Hong Kong-born, Canadian-raised, cis-gendered single woman who’s spent my whole life trying to meet other people’s standards instead of figuring out what I want. I was liberated by mindset change and positive psychology, and now I’m offering this culturally relevant “mental detox” to help racialized women find theirs.
I’m also a Certified HR Leader, Chartered Professional Accountant, and Positive Intelligence Coach, with over 20 years of corporate executive experience. I leverage all my skills and experiences – my whole self – to help you Change Your Lens, Free Your Mind, and Transform Your Life.
What Will You Gain?
We apply a JEDI lens of decolonization, anti-racism and inclusion to the neuroscience and psychology of Positive Intelligence® ("PQ") to help you:
Identify the underlying fears and negative voices that keep you down (your "Saboteurs")
Recognize the Saboteur lies that limit your true strength and self-worth while convincing you they're helping you succeed and fit in
Develop new habits and grow your brain "muscles" to shift from Saboteur to "Sage" (your positive self)
Strengthen your resilience and mental fitness to tackle challenges, both personal, professional, and societal
You'll also benefit from:
A curated, intimate community of relatable women to encourage each other with confidential sharing and gentle accountability
Small group size: there will be no more than 5 people in the group, to ensure your voice is heard and discussion is meaningful
Access to the PQ App for a full year (even after the detox ends)
Empowerment through self-acceptance and recognition of your value and worth
A constant cheerleader who believes in you and supports you without judgment!
How Does it Work? What's the Time Commitment?
Over the 8-week mental detox, you will:
Receive live weekly group coaching from Rosie via Zoom every Monday from 12:00 - 12:55 EDT (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday)
Learn PQ techniques directly from the creator, Shirzad Chamine, through one-hour training videos which dive deep into the week's mental exercises
Accelerate your growth through daily practice of these exercises, just a few minutes at a time, dispersed throughout the day
Supplement your learning with free access to the New York Times bestselling book, "Positive Intelligence" by Shirzad Chamine
Debrief insights, share challenges, and receive support from fellow group members
The total time commitment for all of the above is about 4 hours a week, spread out during the week
Weekly videos are released each Saturday to be watched over the weekend
Everything except live group coaching can be done asynchronously (on your own time)
- To maintain safety and confidentiality of group coaching, sessions will not be recorded
Rosie’s group coaching program challenged me to reflect on how I respond when faced with personal and professional stressors. I was empowered to not only identify my patterns of self-sabotage, but also build my mental fitness to break these patterns. The weekly Pod discussions motivated me to be accountable to complete the program exercises. I valued that all members of my Pod group (as well as Rosie) were women of colour – this is something I’ve never had access to in other programs I’ve attended, and fostered a sense of community and safety when sharing personal struggles and accomplishments. I highly recommend this program!

Does It Really Help?
I can tell you that it has helped me a LOT. Besides my bi-cultural inner conflicts and internalized racism, I also have clinical depression and anxiety, have undergone psychotherapy and continue to use prescription medication to manage symptoms. I've also tried and trained in multiple coaching programs, and this is the only one I believe in and recommend. That's why I'm passionate about offering this to you, because:
a) I've seen it work for me and other racialized women; and
b) traditional "executive coaching" and even life coaching programs are based on methodologies created by white men, steeped in whiteness and ideologies I disagree with.
I asked some former coachees to share their experiences so you can hear directly from them:
