The Energy Project energizes people and transforms companies, offering a detailed blueprint for fueling a fully engaged workforce. Drawing on the multidisciplinary science of high performance, we do this at three levels: We train people to perform sustainably at the highest levels by more skillfully managing their energy across four dimensions: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual to develop actionable strategies that help them to become more energized, focused and productive. We teach leaders to become Chief Energy Officers, who mobilize, inspire, focus, direct and regularly recharge the energy of those they lead. We partner with companies to help them better meet the core needs of their employees, so they’re freed, fueled and inspired to bring the best of themselves to work every day. Demand is exceeding our capacity. Time is the resource we’ve traditionally relied on to get more done. The problem with time is that it’s finite, and most of us no longer have additional hours left to invest at work. Energy, by contrast, can be expanded and regularly renewed. Drawing on the multidisciplinary science of high performance, The Energy Project has developed a set of simple principles and highly actionable practices for more effectively managing energy to drive higher levels of engagement, productivity, and innovation. Our clients range from companies such as Google, Coca Cola, Target, Sony, Ernst & Young, and Pfizer to organizations such as the Los Angeles Police Department, the Cleveland Clinic, Kipp Schools and many others.

AARP Uncertainty is the new normal. Americans age 50 and over face choices and pressures unlike those of any other age group — choices no one could have prepared for. Older workers suffer the largest increase in long-term unemployment, the longest spells of joblessness and the least likelihood of finding jobs. Many are living paycheck to paycheck, and one in four workers has burned through his or her savings. Having worked hard, paid taxes and served their country and communities, they find themselves in circumstances far beyond what they could have prepared for. Many of them are one step short of economic catastrophe. Those who are 50 and over and struggling need a voice and an advocate now more than ever. AARP Foundation — a charitable affiliate of AARP — serves that purpose. Building on AARP's reputation and expertise, AARP Foundation has the ability to support and work with local organizations and programs nationwide to coordinate, fill in the gaps and help effective initiatives grow. This multiplier effect ensures we don't duplicate resources or reinvent the wheel. By 2030, one in every five Americans will be age 65 or older. Let's not wait until poverty becomes a way of life they can never escape. Through the programs of AARP Foundation, we can give struggling Americans 50 and over a chance to recover their confidence, regain a foothold and stay on track. The more we do now, the less we'll have to do later.
