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 Index assessment and debrief process alone will change the way you view your world.

Background: A Wholistic 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 a wholistic 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.

There are no limits as to the potential growth that you can achieve. Once you realize that your level of consciousness is directly related to your actions, you can move from functioning effectively, to functioning optimally.

What is Energy Leadership?

Energy Leadership refers to both a particular and unique form of leadership, and also, literally, to the process of leading energy, so that it works for you rather than against you. By learning and applying the principles and concepts of Energy Leadership, you can increase your ability to shift your own energy and the energy of those around you. When you do that, you will help inspire, motivate, engage yourself and others, feel a greater sense of purpose, get more done with much less effort and stress, and constantly attract positive and powerful people and success to you.

Studies prove that higher levels of energy are associated with higher levels of success in life, including success in finances, relationships, personal development, achievement, and more.

How does the Assessment work?

This assessment includes 84 questions and will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete. A copy of your results will be sent to you shortly before your debrief.

As part of the E.L.I. assessment and debrief process, you’ll learn about the 7 levels of leadership and how much energy you currently have in the catabolic-suppressing range and in the anabolic-inspirational range. You’ll be debriefed on the findings of the assessment, and coached on how to navigate yourself to higher performance.

If you proceed on to the Energy Leadership Development System, you’ll be coached on how to become your ideal image of who you need to be as a leader for your situation, division, team, and/or company.

At the time I took the assessment I had no idea what to expect and thought that it might assess my overall leadership skills. However, it was very different than a simple assessment of one’s present leadership strengths and weaknesses; it provided me a way to look at all the ways I perceive myself and how I react (energetically and with actions) to various situations and stimuli both in my personal life and here at work. It also gave me the tools to track not only my energy levels and reactions based on who I am today, but gave me context for some of those (surprising) reactive tendencies based on my life’s history. It was also very helpful to have the visuals and written assessment to follow-up with in our coaching and in my day-to-day world. After receiving this assessment and now using the tools provided by Joelle for several weeks, I feel that I am better able to monitor and handle my work-life integration and my actions/emotional reactions from a place of empowerment and knowledge and less from reaction and overwhelm by my myriad life & work tasks and responsibilities. I am also better able to monitor my energetic self-perception and reactions in a fast-passed environment and in meetings when I need to be on-my-toes, so to speak!
