The Journey to Energy Leadership™

As a Board-Certified Professional Empowerment Coach, Energy Leadership Master Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher and EFT/Tapping Practitioner, Energy Leadership™ concepts and Core Energy Coaching™ are at the heart of my coaching philosophy and approach.

The central construct is that your thoughts resonate at different energetic frequencies and form the lens through which you view your life, thereby creating your reality in each moment. Your capacity to choose your thoughts and energy mindfully—whatever your circumstances or companions—directly impacts your satisfaction in all areas of your life by shaping how you respond to the myriad opportunities and obstacles you perceive every day.

Living in alignment with the principles
of Energy Leadership is about
strengthening your ability
to lead your own energy and
inspire others to do so as well.

To support you in that endeavor, throughout this year I’ll post periodic deep dives into the mechanics and benefits of Energy Leadership. You’ll learn about a key predictor of your sense of personal and professional fulfillment and wellbeing—your E-Factor™—derived from completing the 20-minute Energy Leadership Index™ online assessment. And I’ll share breakthrough Energy Leadership insights and practical tools for reclaiming your power, recapturing your zest for living and stepping into your greatness.

The fastest way to gain traction in shifting your energy right now is to read Bruce D. Schneider’s ground-breaking book, Energy Leadership: Transforming Your Workplace and Your Life from the Core. Bruce is the Founder of iPEC—the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, one of the top ranked coach training firms in the world and the one through which I received basic and advanced coaching certifications. His book shares the secrets of Energy Leadership and the power of Core Energy Coaching. Written in fable form, this inspiring and thought-provoking book is a quick and fun read that imparts valuable and transformative lessons for helping you live life to the fullest.

"Energy Leadership" by Bruce D. Schneider

It explores the mindset of people who make success their reality—helping readers recognize and break through the limitations and blocks to achieving their goals and aspirations. It reveals seven levels of energy that we employ to accomplish or unintentionally thwart our aims. And how to more consciously harness those levels to support every interaction and endeavor.

Energy Leadership has the power
to transform your life by changing
the way you look at everything in your world.

It teaches leaders from all walks of life to develop their skills, sophistication and versatility. They learn to sharpen their awareness and expand their impact in the workplace, the home and the world at large. The bottom line? The most advantageous, effective and efficient way to lead is to enjoy the more enduring and substantive organic results of leveraging constructive energy rather than rely on the more fleeting and lackluster coerced outcomes of force.

Readers will learn how to:

  • Recognize the seven distinct energy levels that are the key to understanding why people think and act the way they do—personally and professionally.
  • Distinguish truly effective leaders from those who deplete the energy of the people around them.
  • Shift energy levels by applying established techniques that support peak performance in themselves and others.
  • Become powerful leaders who motivate themselves and inspire others to reach their full potential.
  • Identify the “Big Four Energy Blocks” and discover proven methods and strategies for recognizing and overcoming these and other obstacles to success.
  • Develop the ability to shift internal energy to meet any leadership challenge—arousing respect, confidence and loyalty in others.

"Energy Leadership" by Bruce D. Schneider

This is not your everyday leadership book—it’s a book about everyday leaders emboldening themselves and others with hope, possibilities and empowerment. Energy Leadership is focused on developing the leader within you, no matter who you are or what you do. Whenever you encourage yourself or another to get unstuck and take constructive action to begin moving forward, you are being a leader by demonstrating leadership. Energy Leadership helps people from all walks of life lead themselves and others to extraordinary and sustainable success. From parents and teachers, clergy and politicians, coaches and consultants, to managers, entrepreneurs and CEOs, the system helps create awareness of the types and levels of energy or consciousness we choose in each moment—demonstrating how to live at the cause, instead of the effect, of our lives.

What clients say about
the power of coaching with Deborah 

“I knew Deborah before she became a Professional Life Coach. I’ve been amazed at how she has changed her life. When I decided it was time to begin making decisions about the next phase of my life, I knew immediately that Deborah was the person I wanted to work with. Her personal and professional experiences help her guide clients through coaching in a way that is individualized and delightfully eye-opening. Her warmth and sensitivity are immediately apparent, even over the phone. With gentle encouragement and permission, she will guide you through an examination of your life, including difficult experiences. She will help you gain insight from your past choices and then explore possibilities for moving forward in less encumbered ways. When you work with Deborah, your life will take on new meaning and your potential will be limitless!” Chris

“The work I did with Deborah continues to change my life. While I have learned many valuable lessons from her, the greatest was the deep insight that is available to me when I listen to and learn from my own inner wisdom. Her intuition, discernment and encouragement have taught me to trust my own intuition—creating new paths and possibilities for my life. One of Deborah’s great gifts is helping others respect and connect with their inner guidance and through that connection, to form a deeper, more meaningful bond with the collective wisdom and energy of all.” Ryan

What readers say about
the impact of Deborah’s book

“With the same energy and determination she applied in the professional world, Deborah has taken her considerable expertise in human potential and has now set her sights on the largest co-op in the world, humanity. ‘Choose Your Energy, Change Your Life!’ tackles what I believe are the most important questions we each must ask: who am I, where did I come from, why am I here, and what’s love got to do with it (cue Tina Turner)? These are not trivial or philosophical questions for the answers change what we do, why we do it, who and what we love. I am grateful for the opportunity to walk with Deborah on this critical journey.” JD Messenger, Award Winning Author of “11 Days in May: The Conversation That Will Change Your Life”

“To me the great thing about Deborah’s book is how ‘accessible’ she makes the ideas. The Oxygen Mask is probably the single best example. As with so many of the ideas in the book, she explains the principle in such a simple way that it’s got universal application to virtually any reader. I can imagine people having multiple moments of ‘Oh….I get it!’ throughout the book. The stories from her own life as well as stories of her clients’ experiences become stories about all of us—stories about which the reader will think, ‘I am living my own version of this.’ Well done—bravo!” Joe Calloway, Author of “Be The Best At What Matters Most”

About djwlifecoach

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. 111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness. Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled. Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else. I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do. By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire. My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
