The New Leader’s Role: Chief Energy Officer

As demand in our lives outpaces our capacity, the fundamental responsibility of any leader is to mobilize, focus, inspire and sustain the energy of those they lead – and fuel sustainable high performance.  For the leader as Chief Energy Officer, ...

As demand in our lives outpaces our capacity, the fundamental responsibility of any leader is to mobilize, focus, inspire and sustain the energy of those they lead – and fuel sustainable high performance.  For the leader as Chief Energy Officer, the challenge ahead is not to get more out of people — but to systematically invest in better meeting their needs, so they’re freed, fueled and inspired to bring more of themselves to work every day.  We each have four energy needs — physical (sustainability); emotional (security); mental (self-expression) and spiritual (significance). When leaders begin by taking care of their own energy needs, and empower those they lead to do the same, the result is workforce that is healthier, happier, more focused, more motivated and higher performing.  Leaders at many of the world’s top companies have applied Tony Schwartz’s principles and practices — both in their own lives and across their organizations – and experienced extraordinary results.
Some key takeaways from this presentation:
•   A clear understanding of what it means to be a Chief Energy Officer.
•  How to meet the four core needs to increase engagement and capacity .
•  A 20 question Leader Audit assesses current rating as Chief Energy Officer.

•  Balance self-care with care for team – each serves the other and everyone benefits.

Sustainable High Performance: Building Capacity in a World of Relentless Demand

There’s a better way to work.  Human beings aren’t meant to operate in the same way that computers do: continuously, at high speed, for long periods of time, running multiple programs at the same time. Still, we try.  It’s a prescription for exhaustion.  Schwartz shows audiences a new path to achieve breakthrough and sustainable high performance – starting today.  We’re at our best when we move between periods of expending and intermittently renewing our four key sources of energy: physical (quantity), emotional (quality), mental (focus), and spiritual (purpose). This is something the world’s best athletes and trainers have known for years.  The more skillfully and systematically we learn to manage our energy, the more resilient, focused, engaged and sustainably productive we become.  The same is true for those you manage.

Some key takeaways from this presentation:

•  Learn how to build breakthrough sustainable high performance starting today.

•  Stop multi-tasking and start focusing to accomplish better results in less time.

•  Learn to manage the four energy states and build capacity that will change your life.

•  How to build in intermittent renewal – the counter-intuitive key to sustaining high performance.

•  Why the most fundamental role of a leader is to serve as the Chief Energy Officer.

“Tony Schwartz and his work at The Energy Project is revolutionizing our work at KIPP.  His basic idea, like all great ideas, is so elegantly simple – in order for people to be at their best they need to renew their energy levels. Since beginning our work with Tony, our team now focuses on how we build in time for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual renewal.  This year, KIPP is honored to serve over 50,000 kids and families across the United States.  Our students and their parents expect us to be at our best every single day.  Tony is teaching us how to do this.  He is a gifted speaker – whether presenting to several hundred principals and teachers or working in smaller groups, Tony has KIPP talking energy.  More than talking about it, he has us renewing energy regularly so we can deliver on the promises we’ve made.  Not only is Tony making KIPP more effective, he’s also making it more joyful and fulfilling.  Hiring Tony to speak to your team is one of the best decisions you will make this year.”

“Tony understands the forces — both internal and external — that have pushed so many of us into working lives defined by stress, overwork and burnout. His gifts as a speaker are only rivaled by his gifts as a listener, and his ability to help individuals and companies course-correct and operate with less stress and more productivity, creativity, and fulfillment.”
