Energy Leadership is a coaching theory and approach developed by Bruce D. Schnieder, the creator of iPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, and ranked by Forbes Magazine as one of the top assessments that all leaders should take. iPEC’s proven, interdisciplinary methodologies are founded on a “inside out” strategy that transforms customers from the inside out, enabling for long-term growth and transformation.
The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) is a one-of-a-kind evaluation designed by iPEC that allows leaders (of which we are all) to reflect on their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall leadership competencies. The ELI is a tool that can help you establish a baseline for your present performance, situation, and attitude. The ELI exposes the filters through which we perceive the world, including how we perceive ourselves and others. Great leaders can encourage, inspire, and bring out the best in others, as well as in themselves.
Of course, leadership isn’t limited to the boardroom. Leading is the process of assisting others in taking action, including ourselves. Our ability to lead is determined by our fundamental energy. It has an impact on how we communicate with others at work and at home, how we form supportive and long-lasting relationships, and how we teach our children to lead productive and fulfilling lives. We can improve our effectiveness as leaders at home, in our careers, and in our communities by learning to raise our core energy.
