To be fully engaged in our lives, we must be physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused, and spiritually aligned with a purpose beyond our immediate self-interest.” – Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz, The Power of Full Engagement (2003)
Everyone talks about Resilience, Time Management, and Productivity but to be truly successful and a high performer it is imperative to be in tune to what gives you energy, what absorbs your energy and how to manage your energy cycles.
Some executives thrive under pressure, others wilt. There is an epidemic of stress and burnout in our personal and work lives. We pride ourselves on our ability to multi-task and use computer aids to organize the demands on our time; we become more efficient and take on more responsibilities, and with them, more stress.
Even when managing our time well, we still end up exhausted and stressed, unable to concentrate, stay focused, and be productive. That’s because the problem isn’t time management or resilience or productivity, it’s energy.
What leaders and businesses need for themselves and their teams is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure and rapid change, and that takes energy.
The tools for sustaining high performance are not taught in business schools. Leadership development courses rarely broach the issue of energy management, either individually or organizationally. Depleted energy may be one of the reasons more than two-thirds of employees feel less than fully engaged at work (Gallup Organization, 2004).
Some of the secrets of sustaining energy and high performance come from studying professional athletes. Professional athletes spend most of their time training and, at most, a few hours a day actually competing. Corporate executives, however, have almost no time for training and must perform at peak levels under intense scrutiny and competition for often 12 or 14 hours a day. Most professional sports have an offseason of several months. The typical executive has several weeks of vacation; even then, as many as 47 percent reports taking their laptops to answer e-mail during their breaks. The career of the athlete spans 7 years on average; that of a corporate executive may last 40 or 50 years.
Energy has four dimensions: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It is necessary to draw energy from each to maintain high levels of peak performance.
The skillful management of energy—both individually and organizationally—makes sustaining peak performance possible.
