The Energy Leadership Index (E.L.I.) is a one-of-a-kind attitudinal assessment that enables individuals and groups to hold up mirrors to their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall leadership capabilities.

Developed by psychologist and founder of the Institute for Professional Excellence Coaching (iPEC), Dr. Bruce Schneider, this assessment uncovers your behaviors and tendencies in both normal circumstances and when under stress.

This includes a 20-minute online assessment and 75-minute debrief of your results where you will find out exactly:

  • what beliefs are keeping you stuck with what’s not working thus impacting your success
  • what thoughts you have that are working against you – stealing your energy and enthusiasm
  • what pushes your buttons causing you to shut down or overreact
  • the energy that is available for you to tap into (yes, it’s there!)

While we debrief your results I will be sharing with you practices and perspectives that will help you rewrite your beliefs so they boost you rather than hold you back.

The insight provided helps you: 

  • identify the stress reactions that drain you so you can overcome them
  • see what unconscious thoughts hinder your success
  • lean into your normal tendencies, supporting you in being your best
  • transform how you perceive yourself and the world around you 
  • move forward and into action


Jodi was really fantastic! She approached our coaching session with a high level of energy and enthusiasm. Jodi walked me through my results: my current outlook, behaviors, and ways to make positive changes to increase my energy both at work and at home. Though Jodi and I did not know each other prior to our session, her understanding of my assessment results and the direction of our conversation gave her great insight into my personality, values and outlook. I found a great deal of meaning in the overview of my results and Jodi's recommendations. What's more, I am now reading the accompanying book, which reads like a case study and is hugely eye-opening. This new understanding has changed the way I think and respond in profound ways. Thank you so much, Jodi, for introducing me to exactly what I need at exactly the right time.

Never in my life has something been so eye-opening, both professionally and personally. Jodi identified the thoughts and beliefs that drive my decisions and actions. The VERY day I had the debriefing I was faced with a moment of decision and Jodi's words rang true in my ears. I made a decision that was informed, and aware. Not only was I able to change the beliefs I had surrounding a challenge, but I was able to act in a manner that was a win-win for everyone involved. Amazing!! The 'I Want My Damn Life Back' Index is one of the most effective tools I have ever encountered.
