Getting to the Core of Your Mindsets
We all have unique ways that we perceive, understand and experience the world around us. If you’re wearing a heavy coat at a tropical beach, odds are you’re going to get sweaty and uncomfortable. If you didn’t realize you were wearing the coat, you might conclude that the beach is an uncomfortable and miserable place.
Once you recognize you’ve been wearing the heavy coat, you can then decide to take it off and suddenly have a very different experience of the beach. You could also decide that you like the coat just fine and would prefer to be in the mountains!
Much like the coat in this metaphor, our core beliefs, attitudes and mindsets greatly influence the way we “show up” in life. Ultimately, our attitudes either hinder us or help us. The good news is that attitudes and perceptions are not fixed and permanent. Just like the heavy coat, we can either choose to keep them, discard them or use them differently.
a mirror that reflects your world
The Energy Leadership™ Index is a one-of-a-kind assessment that brings together metrics and mindset. It illuminates the impact of your attitudes, perceptions and mindsets – without judgment – and invites you to explore what, if anything, you want to do next.
The E.L.I. serves as a meaningful baseline for coaching engagements, as it offers you and your coach a metric to gauge both where you are now and where you wish to go in the future. It also arms you and your coach with a shared vocabulary that can be useful in the coaching process.
an 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 an 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.
