Anese teaching
The Contagious Culture Leadership Workshop is a half-day live training taught by Anese Cavanaugh: CEO of Active Choices, Inc. and founder of the IEP Method and the Positive Energy Workplace Initiative™.

If you are familiar with the IEP work and catalog of courses, this 1/2 day session is a blend of the IEP Fundamentals with components from IEP Advanced Relational Skills built in. (Note: This class qualifies for 1 CEU towards the Positive Energy Leadership Certification in the Positive Energy Workplace Initiative.)

In this session we will:

  • Work with the IEP Method (all three parts) to up-level your own Intentional Energetic Presence as a leader
  • Work with your/your organization’s Essential You to strengthen your leadership congruence and foundation
  • Explore “Relational” and “Team” IEP (business, family, partnership), your intentions and leadership in it, and what “good” looks and feels like
  • Identify the three core areas you must address in your cultural initiatives to help you strengthen culture, build customer trust, optimize performance, and create psychological safety in any dynamic
  • Create an IEP Personal Integration Plan and a Team/Relational Integration Plan that you can put into action immediately afterward

Two things today that are really going to stick with me beyond the anchoring of presence in my body, is that presence is impact. Everything that we bring to the world is impact through our conscious presence.

Emily Diaz


The most important thing that I took away from these last two days is really about taking control of – and responsibility for – the power you have. I think previously, I’ve sort of given myself a little story, and all Monday was, ‘I’m tired. I don’t have this much energy.’ What I realized is that there are ways to shift this… and then jump up the energy level. I think it’s pretty amazing that even that little change, has made me feel much more empowered to have control back of my energy level, and then be able to project that to the rest of the audience.
