The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) is an important tool I use with clients who are experiencing transition and grief to assist them in gaining insight and clarity for navigating through this period of loss, pain, and disorientation. Does this sound like you? Do you wonder how it is possible to find the energy and motivation to move forward in creating your new life when you are still grieving the loss of your old life?
The ELI is a unique assessment that measures your attitudes and energy, both in your normal manner of functioning and in the ways you react to stress. And let's face it, transition and grief are just about the most stressful experiences that we will encounter in our lives.
One of the most common issues that my clients struggle with is low levels of energy. They feel that they don't have the energy to motivate or direct themselves as they deal with the upheaval, mental disorganization, and overwhelming emotions that make up the normal reaction to transition, loss, and grief. Often, clients share that they feel hopeless, disempowered, and unable to cope. Does this sound familiar to you? Do you feel like you have lost sight of who you are, what you want in life, and how to move forward to achieve it? If so, you are not alone.
The Energy Leadership Index Assessment (ELI) provides powerful insights, clarity, and motivation to raise your awareness so you can choose the attitudes and behaviors that best serve you in letting go of the past and embracing your future. As part of the Energy Leadership Index Assessment and debrief process, you will learn about the seven levels of energy and how much of your energy is within each level. You'll also learn strategies for shifting your energy from lower to higher levels in order to support yourself in successfully navigating through changes in your life with regard to career, finances, family and parenting, health and wellness, spiritual and personal development, and relationships.
The ELI is an empowerment tool based on the energy/action model conceived by Dr. Bruce D. Schneider. The concept is this: your attitudes and energy are subjective and can be altered through awareness. The next step is slowing down your reactions and examining your options so that you are able to make conscious choices that are in alignment with your values and goals. By working with me using the Energy Leadership Index Assessment, debrief session, and subsequent individual coaching (where we make use of the information from your individual Assessment Report) you can learn to observe your attitudes and perceptions, make a shift in your consciousness, choose your responses to the situations and circumstances of your life (instead of merely reacting to them) and increase your overall energy and engagement in life.
As an astoundingly accurate assessment, the Energy Leadership Index provides you with a roadmap to know where you are now, where you want to go - and why - and what the results will be when you reach your destination.
Once you realize that your level of consciousness is directly related to your thoughts, feelings, and actions, you can move from the lower energy levels of grief, hopelessness, despair, discouragement, apathy, and lethargy into the higher levels where you are experiencing yourself as a co-creator of your new life and fully and whole-heartedly engaged in living your life's next chapter.
It’s 9:30 pm. You got home at a reasonable time and rustled up a decent dinner. You’ve got the kids fed, teeth brushed, homework discussed, and they are tucked into bed. You climb into bed with your partner (who has that special look in their eye that you meet with that, “Don’t even go there” look of your own), you are balancing a glass of wine on one knee, your laptop on the other (answering work email), and the TV is on Real Housewives of Wherever.
This is what you call “me” time.
You congratulate yourself for checking all the important boxes for the day. Took care of the boss. Check. Handled the needs of your direct reports. Check. Kids. Check. Your partner. Check minus. Looming deadlines, client’s never-ending requests for “just one more thing,” responding supportively to your BFF's 17 text messages to rant about her divorce. Check. Check. Check. You’re awesome. You’ve got this.
And, as you are multitasking your way through the finish line of your day, you know you need this last hour to decompress before you lay your head down to sleep and get up tomorrow to do it over again. You’re doing an impressive job of fitting it all in.
You are so there for everyone and everything that is important to you.
