How well do you manage your energy at work?
How well do you handle the transitions between work and home?
How much attention do you give to the skillful management of your leadership energy?
Energy is something we often fail to pay attention to. We may take our energy for granted or we may just bottom out when we are exhausted. Yet energy is an essential resource to achieve our objectives and to build and maintain our vital relationships. Energy comes in many forms: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and organizational.
If you are excited to get a head start on managing energy I highly recommend Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz’s – The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal.
Here is what Marcus Buckingham had to say about the book
Fantastic! At the heart of this book is a simple truth: the secret to lasting success — individually and organizationally — lies in how we manage our energy. This is a phenomenal insight that most of us ignore. Tony Schwartz and Jim Loehr provide a very practical map for marshaling our energy — physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually — to live much more productive and fulfilling lives.
Part of this strength-based leadership blog will be devoted to a closer examination of leadership energy and an outline of approaches and methods to work with our energy, enhance the energy of others, and build the energy of our organization.
