Energy Leadership™ Index assessment (ELI)

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future. 

Personality vs. attitudinal Assessments

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, which are designed to help you better understand your personality traits and characteristics, but this is different. And transformational. 


The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration. 


With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Types of Energy

What is meant by energy is how people “show up” in their lives or at work.


Two forces are identified:

- Catabolic energy, the energy of stress. When facing a perceived danger, the hormonal system produces Cortisol, which is allows the body to respond trigger the Fight / Flight / Freeze response. It is a tearing down force that uses up the body resources.

- Anabolic energy, the energy of coherence, creation and collaboration. This is when the hormonal system produces DHEA and Oxyticin. It is when the body repairs and cares for itself.

When we spend too much time in catabolic energy, we are using up our resources and are straining ourselves. All of our attention is focused on the perceived danger and our ability to see the bigger picture is impaired.

The 7 levels of Awareness

What lens are you using to view the world in this moment? We use 7 levels of awareness to describe what attitude you might be experiencing:

- Level 1: "I lose"

Lack of Choice. Victim Energy

- Level 2: "You lose"

Anger, Resistance

- Level 3: "I win"

Rationalisation, Justification

- Level 4: "You win"

Care, Compassion, Service to others

- Level 5:"We all win or nobody plays"

Win-Win, Acceptance, Opportunities

- Level 6: "Everybody always wins"

Intuition, Wisdom

- Level 7: "There are no winners or losers"

Passion, Creation

No level is good or bad, all have a purpose, advantages and disadvantages. They also all come into play within us.  The idea is that by being aware of them, this gives you the opportunity to pause and reflect: “is this how i want to show up?”.

The ELI Assessment

The ELI assessment is done online and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Once you submit your assessment, we will schedule a date and time for a 90-minute debrief session to discuss your results. You will also receive a written report summarising your results.
