Attitude for Altitude: Using energy leadership to achieve life changing attitude shifts
Wednesday, August 16th | 12:00pm  to 1:00pm (CST)

Coaches use a myriad of assessments and tools, all designed to assist clients to become more self-aware so that they can remove obstacles that get in the way of their success. Many of these tools are personality assessments, which inform the client about what they are best suited to do in life and their careers and how to achieve their goals by using information about their “type.” The Energy Leadership Index™ i(ELI) is an attitude assessment, which informs clients about their default attitudes when things are going well and when under stress. By understanding their default attitudes, the client can shift their attitudes so that they better serve them.
