Energy Leadership

What Is Energy Leadership?

Before we explore the rest of what Energy Leadership may have to offer you, let’s define the two key underlined terms above.

Leadership:  Leadership is how you interact with everyone, including yourself.  Leaders are quite visible within small and large businesses. We tend to think of them as business owners and CEO’s and managers at various levels. Traditionally, leadership also extends into politics and other global affairs.  However, parents, therapists and health care providers, solopreneurs, sports coaches, consultants, mentors, partners in relationship, teachers, authors, and others who interact with people on a regular basis are all leaders.

EVERYONE is a leader either by choice or default.

Organization: Organizations are not limited to business.  All of the groups, teams, and people around you are organizations, too. It’s the colleagues you work with and the family you go home to.  Your organization includes all those who are grouped within your many circles of influence.

Each of us is a part of many organizations.

There are 2 Streams. Which One Do You Swim In?

A relentlessly damaging stream is flowing through America. This stream is not created by water, but by fear. It is the Stream of Unconsciousness.

Its constructive counterpart, the Stream of Consciousness, flows through only a few of the world’s homes and organizations and is fed by creative and positive thinking that produces questions like “What’s right,” “What’s the opportunity here,” and “How can we make this work?” In contrast, the Stream of Unconsciousness is based on only one question: “What’s wrong?” This stream is the one most of us have been trained to see, listen to, drink from, and bathe in since birth.

What will it take to shift the pressure and negativity that surrounds not only corporate America but our personal lives and the state of our communities?

What will help employees to be productive, content, and have a positive view of both the organizations they work for and the people they work with?

 

It will take a powerful leader who is skilled, highly sophisticated, and versatile, and one who understands the power of energy.

 

My leadership coaching platform includes concepts and strategies that support developing the leader within you and also developing leaders around you.

Being intentional about our leadership is essential. We must always have their best interest and an end goal in mind when we have conversations with our team members. Knowing how to navigate crucial conversations and create a culture of high-support and high challenge is a must if we want to be an effective leader.

Using the concept of High-Support and High Challenge and backed up with tools from transformational coaching, you will understand how to help others cultivate the leader within them and also duplicate that to others on your team or in your department.

Catabolic and Anabolic Energy: The 2 Forces That Create Your World--Every Minute of Every Day

More than a hundred years ago, Albert Einstein addressed the scientific community, passionately presenting the idea that everything we see, hear, taste, touch, and smell is not matter, but energy.

Everything that “matters” is energy.

On an energetic and cellular level, catabolism usually refers to a breakdown of complex molecules, while anabolism is the opposite.  When you hear about a person’s catabolic or anabolic energy, however, it’s a broader statement about destructive and constructive forces in an entire person, who is made up not only of individual cells but also of anabolic and catabolic thoughts and beliefs. 

Anabolic and Catabolic energy are predominant in organizations as well as people.  Many organizations experience catabolic energy by constantly reacting to their circumstances with worry, fear, doubt, anger, and guilt.  And thoughts are indeed contagious.  When even a few people in an organization have negative feelings, it can spread like a virus. “Group think” sets in, and their thoughts become group “fact.”  Once that occurs, the company can implode energetically in a swirl of gossip, negativity, conflict and contempt.

Anabolic leaders have the ability to motivate and inspire themselves and others to do extraordinary things.  They have the ability to make energetic shifts in all levels of the organization.  The most successful organizations are those that are filled with powerful, positive, anabolic leaders, and that means everyone in the organization, not just the “ones at the top.”

No matter how effective or ineffective you currently are in your role, you can transform yourself and others, as well as your organization, into a thriving, inspired, positive, productive, and successful entity. And, thus begins your journey to become the Ideal Leader.

Watch the two videos below for an introduction on how to create a healthy work/team environment.

Energy Leadership™ Index Assessment: A Mirror That Reflects Your World

The Energy Leadership™ Index (E.L.I.) is a one-of-a-kind assessment that enables leaders to hold up mirrors to their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall leadership capabilities.  The E.L.I. forms the initial launching point for the Energy Leadership Development System, helping give you a baseline for your current performance and situation.  Whether you proceed through the full system or not, the realizations that you’ll gain from the Energy Leadership assessment and debrief process alone will change the way you view your world.

Background: An Attitudinal Assessment

There are two main types of assessments: Personality and Attitudinal. Personality based assessments, such as Myers Briggs and D.I.S.C. are very valuable tools that pinpoint certain personality types so that people can have more of an understanding about what their strengths and weaknesses are. By understanding your personality and how it relates to what you do, you can adapt your behavior to “work with what you have,” to function effectively.

The E.L.I. is an attitudinal assessment, which is based on an energy/action model. This assessment differs from personality assessments as it is not intended to label a person and have them work well within that label. Instead, it measures your level of energy based on your attitude, or perception and perspective of your world. Because attitude is subjective, it can be altered.

By working with a coach using the E.L.I., you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy and leadership effectiveness.

I reached out to Martin a few months back as I was struggling with personal issues that were affecting my life and business negatively daily. I felt stuck and couldn’t seem to get out of my way to move on.

Martin was ready to jump into our session right from the start, naturally met me where I was, and took me to the next level of success during our 1st session. He offered clear and specific ideas, resources, and action steps that I have already started implementing. I am now reconnecting with myself, learning to live life with intention and gaining positive energy daily. If your looking to become a more effective leader, growing your business to next level or just want to reestablish clarity and purpose in your life I highly recommend Martin. Its clear to me that he sincerely cares and enjoys helping others succeed, and I look forward to working with Martin to further my growth!
