Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment 

Energy Leadership is a coaching philosophy and approach developed by Bruce D. Schnieder, the founder of iPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. The robust, interdisciplinary methods pioneered and employed by iPEC are based on an “inside out” approach that transforms clients from the core, allowing for sustainable growth and transformation.


The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) is a one-of-a-kind assessment developed by iPEC that enables leaders (we are all leaders in our lives) to hold up mirrors to our perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall leadership capabilities. The ELI helps give you a baseline for your current performance, situation, and attitude. The ELI reveals the filters we see the world through, this includes how you see yourself and everyone around you. Great leaders are not only able to motivate, inspire, and bring out greatness in others, but also in themselves. The question isn’t whether or not you are a leader; the question is…how will you lead? 

Leadership is not confined to the boardroom, of course. Leading is the way we help move people into action, ourselves included our core energy determines our leadership ability. It effects how we communicate with others at work and home, how we develop supportive and sustaining relationships, and how we raise our children to pursue productive and satisfying lives. By learning to increase our core energy, we can maximize our effectiveness as leaders at home, in our careers and in our communities.

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 are designed to pinpoint certain personality types so that people can have more of an understanding about what their strengths and weaknesses are and how these play out in relationship to other people. By understanding your personality and how it relates to what you do, you can adapt your behavior to “work with what you have” in order to function effectively.

By contrast, the ELI is an attitudinal assessment, which is based on an energy/action model. This assessment differs from personality assessments in that it is not intended to label a person and have them function within that label. Instead, it measures your level of energy and engagement in your life at this moment based on your attitude, perceptions, and perspective on your world. Because attitude is subjective, it can be altered. By working with a coach using the ELI as a springboard, you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy, engagement, and effectiveness.

There are no limits as to the potential growth that you can achieve. Once you realize that your level of consciousness is directly related to your actions, you can move from functioning effectively to functioning optimally.

The ELI assessment itself is about 20-minute, completed online, it takes a snapshot of how you’re showing up in the world. After completing the assessment, you will receive a customized report, which we will work together to debrief and apply to your personal growth goals. As part of the ELI assessment and debrief process, you’ll learn about iPEC’s seven levels of energy – a simple, yet powerful way to think of the interplay between attitude, emotion, and behavior and how these play out in your life and navigation to higher performance.

If you proceed on to the Energy Leadership Development System, you’ll be coached on how to become your ideal image of who you need to be as a leader for your situation, division, team and/or company.
