energy leadership

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Thomas Jefferson

Energy, what is it?    Energy can be considered the ability to lead others or a quantity of a force that can be exerted to create a change.    Our thoughts could be considered energy, energy that is either creative or destructive.   The mental energy to create positive thoughts releases chemicals into the body that are building.  Thoughts that are negative release hormones into the body that are destructive.

Positive energy is considered anabolic energy or building energy that increases joy, happiness and success in life.   Anabolic energy shows up as a force for helping others, having compassion and wanting to serve in some capacity.    This building energy is the kind of energy that enables positive change to take place and the ability to take advantage of and create opportunities.

At the highest levels this anabolic energy allows one to synthesize information from multiple sources and create a unified view.   At high levels anabolic energy shows up  as confidence with a desire to create “everyone wins”  outcomes.    People who operate with a high level of anabolic energy are seen as mostly non-judgmental and willingly acknowledge others contributions.

People with high levels of what is called Level 4 (Compassion) and Level 5 (Opportunity) energy are strong leaders who are driven in a compassionate manner.     Considering that all people are leaders in some form or another it would seem that developing the capacity to increase anabolic energy would be a great benefit for improving leadership ability.

What level of energy are you operating at?
