Unlock your company’s—and your own—best leadership, culture, & creativity.
The IEP Method® (Intentional Energetic Presence®) is our proprietary methodology and impact model at the core of our leadership and collaboration programs. It’s based upon 20 years working in the trenches with business leaders, athletes, organizations, and human beings on human performance, influence, building resiliency, cultivating trust, and creating impact. It’s been used by leading innovators like IDEO, Cooper, GM Financial, Fitbit, Vistaprint, D-Ford, and more and in multiple industries including: design, education, law enforcement, government, hospitality, automotive, health care, tech, startups, real estate, sales, marketing, and finance.
IEP helps people be “at cause” in their life (vs. “at the effect of it”), work better together, show up more powerfully, create the impact they want—AND honor their well-being while doing so.
Studies have shown that up to 93% of our impact is in how we “show up”—while only 7% of our impact is in the words we actually say. They’ve also shown that people decide within 1/10th of second if they like us, trust us, and think we’re credible. Finally, the U.S. spends billions each year in lost productivity due to low engagement (which relates to burnout, lack of presence and leadership, and how people show up). Our ability to show up authentically, to make people feel seen and cared for, to serve, and to take care of ourselves is more essential than ever.
With IEP, we can intentionally direct our energy, presence, and actions, becoming the ’cause’ of impact — getting in front of the experience we want to create. Without IEP, we’re at the ‘effect’ of likely unintentional impact and external circumstances — often ‘reacting’ to the experience that’s been created. This we can do something about. When we own our IEP and leadership and do the work to make it what we want it to be, we create a different kind of leadership and culture.
Our proven impact model repeatedly creates results that organizations credit for:
- optimizing their ROI on other training initiatives,
- building trust and collaboration,
- saving millions of dollars in lost time and productivity,
- creating a culture of showing up and accountability,
- and simply creating more individual and organizational well-being and ease as we navigate today’s challenges.
After twenty years leading this work, we’ve found that if you can get 40% of your leaders to transform at their core, you can create permanent culture change. Learn more here.
With a few subtle shifts, IEP strengthens our ability to shift our connection and influence with others and amplify our own energetic states to create positive impact without burning out. By addressing the three parts of the IEP Leadership Trifecta: Self-Care, People, and Impact, we enhance clarity and integrity, build our energetic field and resiliency, lead and influence people more effectively, attract more congruent and powerful opportunities, inspire (vs. force) people to work with us, and ultimately create more positive, sustainable, and contagious impact.
IEP Method is a 3-part methodology, with depth and frameworks in each part, to support you in Showing Up more powerfully. At the highest level, the Method consists of 3 basic components:
- Reboot your presence in the moment
- Create intentional impact
- Build a strong energetic field and foundation
We’ve found that no matter who we work with (or what their intended results) the IEP Method strengthens impact and leaves people in a stronger relationship with themself. This relationship is core to “clean energy” and solid leadership. After twenty years of leading this work and seeing its impact on humans, organizations, and on our own team, we have created the Positive Energy Workplace™ Initiative for organizations who want to be a truly (authentically, not toxic) positively and usefully contagious culture. You can learn more about our work here as well. If you are interested in joining us, let’s talk about your organization and where IEP can support you in building a solid sustainable foundation for being a healthy, energized, and productive workplace.
IEP Method® Self-Study Programs
The IEP Fundamentals course teaches the core basics of the IEP Method. Normally a half to full day-session live, in light of remote working, a request for less time-bound ways to participate in this training, and an absolute commitment to making this work as easily accessible as possible, we’ve made this program available via two self-paced programs: our IEP-103 Course (IEP in 103 minutes + bonus content) and our IEP-W Fundamentals “Webinar-Workshop” (9.5 hours recorded over four 2-hour+ training segments). You can now learn the fundamentals (along with bonus content to support present day needs) at your own pace and with your team or partner. If you do want a live session (virtual or in-person) for your organization, led by Anese or one of our ACI Faculty, see our live program options (to your right).
IEP Impact Labs + Programs
If you want to bring the IEP work into your organization we’d be delighted to! We have two core flagship programs “IEP Fundamentals” and “IEP Leadership” which are delivered live (virtual or in-person as the environment allows) by Anese and/or our IEP/ACI Implementation Team. We offer custom solutions for organizations looking to increase organizational health, immunize their people against “toxic culturing” and “busyness,” build trust from the inside out, cultivate a culture of accountability and leadership, enhance their ROI on other internal training initiatives, and ultimately create better bottom line results throughout. You can learn more about our general programs here and more about our organizational enterprise-wide solutions here.
