In the first of this extended series of posts on the principles of Energy Leadership™, I promised to share more information on a key predictor of your sense of personal and professional fulfillment and wellbeing. Today I deliver on that commitment.
Each of us views the world through a personal lens based on our values, assumptions and experiences. That lens either limits our perspective, like tunnel vision, or expands it, like a prism. It impacts how we perceive ourselves and our circumstances, shaping our thoughts and how we choose to show up in every situation.
The Energy Leadership Index™ (ELI) online assessment reveals what specific lens you’ve developed and how it is influencing your results. There is incredible liberating power in understanding the unconscious lens you’ve formed throughout your life and how it may be holding you back from realizing your full potential for all that life offers.
What could your life look like if only _____? Fill in the blank, refine your lens, take the plunge and explore the possibilities. You’re worth the effort!
The Science of the ELI
The ELI online assessment is based on seven levels of energy or consciousness as described in the Energetic Self Perception Chart™ in Bruce D. Schneider’s insightful book Energy Leadership: Transforming Your Workplace and Your Life from the Core. The levels range from highly limiting or catabolic at level 1 to highly empowering or anabolic at level 7.
The results of this 20-minute assessment, explained in a one-on-one debrief coaching session, will reveal your E-Factor™—capturing how catabolic and anabolic energy are shaping your life personally and professionally. Even small amounts of catabolic energy produce substantial blocks that keep you from moving forward into the life you dream of.
The ELI demonstrates how the thoughts, emotions and behaviors you choose are affecting the energy you live with and the experiences you create in each moment.
An Attitude Assessment
There are two main types of assessments: personality and attitude. Personality-based assessments, such as Myers Briggs and DISC are very valuable tools that identify typical strengths and weaknesses associated with the particular personality type you were born with. By better understanding the preferences and proclivities of your personality type and how they affect your actions and influence your relationships, you can adapt your behavior to work as well as possible within the confines of your particular type. In this way, personality assessments start by labeling you and then teach you to function within the limits of your label.
The ELI is an attitude assessment based on an energy/action model. As such, it measures your level of energy based on your chosen attitude, your chosen perception and your chosen perspective on the world. Because attitude is highly subjective, it is also highly fluid and malleable. As a Board-Certified Empowerment Coach and ELI Master Practitioner, I help you apply the principles of Energy Leadership™ and your ELI results to reshape your attitude, expand your perspective, shift your mindset, increase your energy and strengthen your leadership effectiveness personally and professionally.
Once you realize how your chosen mindset directly affects your actions and results, you can move from functioning effectively, to functioning optimally by choosing your energy more consciously.
Energy Leadership is an issue every day from the moment you first open your eyes. Will YOU be the leader of your life today or live at the effect of everyone and everything that comes your way? How will YOU inspire YOU?

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”
