Our previous post about catabolic profiles highlighted the negative effects that catabolic energy can cause if it’s allowed to cultivate in an organization. As catabolic energy can cause negative effects, a small change toward energy in the anabolic range can result in business gains, creating a positive impact on an organization’s bottom line.
While catabolic energy can cause a negative ripple effect throughout an organization, anabolic energy can create a strong tide that can deliver the inverse result. Anabolic energy promotes productivity and innovation, and leads to a decline in negative factors for an organization, such as absenteeism, turnover, and employee disengagement.
Focusing on the origin of an individual’s level of engagement is critical to making a change in one’s energy. Since engagement stems from core energy, one’s core energy must be shifted from catabolic to anabolic in order to make effective changes in the areas of productivity, life and work satisfaction, leadership ability — and more.
Extensive research has helped to develop iPEC’s Core Energy Coaching™ process, which is specifically designed to enable individuals to shift their energy from the catabolic range to the anabolic range. Coaching using the Core Energy Coaching™ process addresses individualized perspectives and intrinsic values, and then works on obtaining buy-in to shift one’s thoughts and behaviors, and therefore energy, accordingly.
To sustain the corresponding change in one’s energy, the process continues by helping individuals integrate their new perspectives and purpose with organizational culture and goals.
This sustainable change in energy has ripple effects that will more broadly move the needle for an organization. Saving jobs, improving culture, and increasing profits are just the beginning.
What would be the greatest impact on your organization by shifting energy?
