Energy Leadership is a process that develops a personally effective leadership style. And leadership matters in positively influencing individuals and organizations.
Leadership is how you interact with everyone, including yourself. Leaders are part of every organization, whether small or large. We tend to think of them as business owners, CEOs, and managers at various levels. Traditionally we also think of leadership in terms of politics and other global affairs. However, parents, therapists, health care providers, solopreneurs, sports coaches, consultants, mentors, partners in relationship, teachers, authors, and anybody who interacts with others on a regular basis are all leaders. In fact, everyone is a leader, either by choice or default.
And organizations are not just limited to business. All the groups, teams, and people around you are organizations. It’s the colleagues you work with and the family you go home to. Your organizations include everybody grouped within your many circles of influence. Each of us is a part of many organizations.
During a typical workday, most people spend a great deal of time focusing on what’s wrong: with their families, their jobs, their projects, their colleagues, their relationships, and their lives. Studies show that more than 50% of the people in the U.S. workforce would choose, if they could, to quit their jobs.
If you don’t think of yourself as a leader, you are limiting your thinking. Leading is the way we help move people, including ourselves, into action. The question is not whether or not we are leaders, but how well we lead.
