Energy Leadership™ Index Assessment (ELI): 

A Mirror That Reflects Your World

The ELI is a one-of-a-kind assessment that takes a hard look at the way you react in specific situations — the amount you worry about things, your relationship with confrontation, and your view of the world on a good day. That is, whether you have on “rose-colored glasses,” or if you are somewhat of a Debbie Downer. And either one is okay.

Overall, this ELI enables you to hold up a mirror to your current perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall capabilities in leading yourself to the life you want to live.

The online assessment takes about 30 minutes to complete, and a report summary of your results will be emailed. Professional analysis of your answers determine where your current attitude falls within the 7 levels of energy scale (see chart below).

A 90-minute debrief follows the findings of the assessment, combined with coaching and guidance, available only through an iPEC Certified ELI Master Practitioner Coach. That’s me!


“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.”

– Einstein


Being coached by Marcie was such a smooth experience. From the first onboarding conversation I felt I had a lot of wisdom, curiosity and life experience in my corner. A dozen sessions with her resulted in growth of my self-confidence, ability to tune in with my intuition and add pages to my personal user manual. She challenged me to celebrate the little miracles of life more often. I’m grateful for her visual thinking and amazing reflections of my process. I was able to do hard work and have fun.

Background: 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 ELI, however, 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 ELI you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy and leadership effectiveness.

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 was rated #3 by Forbes on the List of Top Assessments for Executives. Click here to read more.
