Can Toxic Leaders Transform into High Energy Leaders?

“I can’t do this anymore.”

“It’s never going to change around here.”

“No one appreciates my hard work.”

Do any of these statements sound familiar?

Unfortunately, these are well-used expressions that find their way into all levels of management and in companies across the country. More importantly, they are symptoms of avoidance-seeking leaders that end up producing—at best—the bare minimum of what is required. This isn’t the kind of leadership these individuals are capable of and it certainly isn’t the kind you want operating your organization.

When leaders feel that they have no choices or are afraid to take risks, they cannot see their team’s and company’s choices clearly. Self-doubt will undercut your employees’ ability to make decisions, rob their team of effectiveness as a unit, and hinder their ability to implement change—thus obstructing the company’s vision for achievement and costing your company money.

You may also recognize:

“If I want something done right, I have to do it myself”


“But, my team is lazy—if I don’t stay on top of them they will totally slack off.”

For this leader, every interaction is a struggle and his or her goal becomes winning, as opposed to doing what is best for the company. This person doesn’t realize that there is a difference between being a “boss” and being a leader.

So what are your options when leadership has become problem-oriented rather than solution-focused?

Don’t let your leaders remain this short-sighted; Energy Leadership™ Development training will replace lackluster efforts (produced by employees who are quickly approaching burnout) with more satisfying and long-lasting results—including company loyalty and employee engagement.

The Energy Leadership™ Index (E.L.I.) is a one-of-a-kind assessment which includes a complete, clear, customized coaching program.The E.L.I. forms the initial launching point for the Energy Leadership™ Development System, helping give your employees a baseline for their current leadership performance and environment.

The Energy Leadership™ Development System utilizes the assessment to address normal human reactions to stress and how to develop better behaviors and attitudes in the face of those stressors. This system teaches powerful leadership tools, including awareness and trust which will allow your leaders to take more chances and create more opportunities for productivity and innovation—launching you into a more profitable space.

“I can’t.” will become “I can!” Your management will find themselves daring to be more curious, striving to inspire, and realizing their full potential as driving forces of improvement in the company. Moreover, stronger team relationships will encourage communication, cooperation and problem-solving.

By investing in your leaders, you invest in a more cohesive and profitable vision for your company.


Upon purchase of the Assessment Package for your team or organization and completion of the individual assessment (E.L.I.), each participant is eligible to view our 90-minute private coaching consultation in which we use the assessment findings to break down the most common attitudes and perspectives that prevent leaders from accessing their full potential.

The Energy Leadership™ Development System provides the accelerated training needed to master the 8 essential aspects of an effective leader, including (but not limited to): Problem Solving, Dynamic Communication, Influencing and Engaging Others, Productivity, Decision Making, and Time Management. We understand that teams take many types of people—and leaders come in all shapes and sizes; that is why we implement a variety of learning styles to encourage understanding and retention across the board. Furthermore, your management will be coached on how to become more effective leaders for their specific situation, division, and team in your company.

Often, we recommend leaders work with a coach for 3 to 6 months in which the client can work on developing the necessary tools for effective leadership—in a one-on-one setting. We also implement coaching groups that help teams function at their highest levels. Further leadership coaching sessions for employees may also be purchased after the larger scope of work has been established and a more productive and healthier environment has been created.

Stronger self-awareness and new mental strategies are a powerful catalyst for culture change, progress, and energetic work environments—choose to make this the hallmark of your company and leaders’ success. Don’t let the unknown become a roadblock for not taking the steps forward. The only way to ensure the future is to get clear about what it looks like. Coaching can take you there.
