Positive Energy Workplace Initiative™

Our Positive Energy Workplace Initiative™ (PEW-i) provides the framework and expertise your organization needs to develop and support real culture change.

Learn and Practice ACI’s Proprietary Methodology 

The IEP Method® is a 3-part methodology designed to create greater leadership, influence, and impact while honoring our own well-being, energy, and vitality. IEP stands for Intentional Energetic Presence®, and is at the core of our impact-driven training, coaching, and programs.

Foster a Positively Healthy and Contagious Workforce

When we take accountability for our own self-leadership and activate our intentions, energy, and presence for good, we create greater psychological safety, honest relationships, resilient  leaders, and a healthy contagious culture that attracts (and retains) top talent and creates positive impact in the world. 

Create Real Organizational Culture Change

Culture transformation is about people transformation. When 40% of the leaders in your organization transform their IEP at their core, your organizational culture transforms. Permanently. Want to become a Certified Positive Energy Workplace™? We’d love to have you join us.


At ACI, we’ve been co-designing organizational spaces for psychological safety, developing human-centered and positively contagious leadership teams, and creating Positive Energy Workplaces since 2002.

Are You Ready to Create Results in Your Organization?

As a Positive Energy Workplace, your organization can experience:

  • Greater psychological safety which leads to honest conversations, authentic leadership and relationships, stronger retention rates, and ultimately greater creativity and results.
  • People are healthier, happier, and connected to purpose which means less lost time, burnout, and expense, and more energy, vitality, and drive to focus on results and impact.
  • Time, energy, talent, conversations, and meetings are managed more intentionally, effectively, and efficiently.
  • Internal workforce trust and integrity creates external consumer and brand trust.
  • Leaders and managers show up with better behaviors and leadership presence making them more trustworthy, inspirational, and effective.
  • Training and development initiatives are embodied (vs. just “done” or “checking the box”) creating trustworthy skills, sustainable behavior change, and optimized ROI.
  • High-performance talent (and good customers) are retained, while new talent (and good customer) attraction increases.
  • Improved intentional present communication and collaboration means time, energy, money, resources, and credibility saved (while creativity and output are optimized).
  • People come to work because they WANT to vs. HAVE to. (It feels good and in integrity to work for you.) 
  • You have more impact (while feeling good vs. exhausted), AND you contribute to the future health of business and humans in the world.
