As an individual, you view the world through filters based on your experiences, values, and assumptions – they either limit what you see (like tunnel vision) or expand it (like a prism). You’ve most likely unconsciously developed these filters throughout your whole life and they significantly impact how you perceive things. This ultimately affects how you show up in different situations and could even be holding you back from realizing the full potential in yourself, your life, and your career.

What if you could apply metrics to these filters and assess how they’re influencing the results you’re achieving? That precisely what iPEC’s Energy Leadership Index assessment (ELI) accomplishes. It’s an attitudinal assessment, not a personality-based one, and it puts a numeric value to the types of energy a person experiences and expresses:

  • Level 1: The Victim. Feeling lost. Stuck. Lack of choice. I can’t. I have to. Fearful.
  • Level 2: The Fighter. Anger. Combativeness. Resisting of fighting energy.
  • Level 3: The Rationalizer. Rationalizing. Fine. Coping.
  • Level 4: The Helper. Care. Compassion. Service to others.
  • Level 5: The Opportunist. Reconciliation. Win-win. Solution-focused.
  • Level 6: The Visionary. Intuition. Creative genius. Visionary.
  • Level 7: The Creator. Absolute Passion. Non-judgement. Oneness.

It’s normal for people to cycle up and down the energetic spectrum as they experience life but it’s also important to remember we are a mix of different energy levels, never just one single level. There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ energy per se but each type has inherent advantages and disadvantages and can be consciously used to reach specific goals. With the awareness and insights gained through ELI debriefs, one can reshape their attitudes and worldviews as well as transform who they are.


The ELI assessment gauges how a person approaches and reacts to different circumstances and experiences by producing a combined numerical value of spiritual, mental, emotional, and psychical energy. This single factor, the Average Resonating Level of Energy (A.R.L.), is a strong indicator of success in various aspects of work and life, representing the average of all your energy levels – under both normal and stressful conditions.  

Studies prove that higher average resonating levels of energy are associated with higher levels of satisfaction in life. During the debrief of the results, one uncovers insights on how they might be experiencing each level of energy in:

  • Finances
  • Leadership Ability
  • Working Relationships
  • Family Relationships
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Health & Wellness
  • Spiritual Connection
  • Communication Skills
  • Productivity

The Energy Leadership Index assessment can be given at the start of a coaching relationship and again after coaching for six months to a year as a follow-up to provide tangible, research-backed ROI data for any coaching engagement. It clearly highlights the value of the Core Energy Coaching and Energy Leadership methods over time. 

This information is provided through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching.


The ELI assessment is included for all of my clients before and after each coaching engagement (min of three months).
