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.
