ELI Assessment

Measure and transform your attitude

What is the ELI Assessment?

As an individual, you view the world through filters based on your experiences, values, and assumptions — they either limit what you see (like tunnel vision) or expand it (like a prism). You've most likely unconsciously developed these filters throughout your whole life, and they significantly impact how you perceive things. This ultimately affects how you show up in different situations and could even be holding you back from realizing the full potential in yourself, your life, and your career.

What if you could apply metrics to these filters and assess how they’re influencing the results you're achieving? That’s precisely what iPEC’s Energy Leadership™ Index assessment (ELI) accomplishes. It’s an attitudinal assessment, not a personality-based one, and it puts a numerical value to the types of energy a person experiences and expresses:


7 Levels of Energy

Level 7: Presence – Winning and losing are illusions. Non-judgment. Oneness.

Level 6: Flow state - Optimal state of consciousness where we feel and perform our best. Tap into Intuition.

Level 5: Global perspective – Rather than viewing life as a series of events you view life as an opportunity and are solution focused.

Level 4: Caring – Your focus turns completely around, and you show up for others and express compassion and service to others.

Level 3: Rationalizing – Recognizing that you cannot sustain yourself in victim and conflict mode long term. You Cope

Level 2: Conflict – Moving out of victim mode and fighting for yourself since no one else will.  Anger. Combativeness. Resisting or fighting energy.

Level 1: Victim-hood  - It feels like life is happening to you.  Feeling lost. Stuck. Lack of choice. I can’t. I have to. Fearful.

It’s normal for people to cycle up and down the energetic spectrum as they experience life but it’s also important to remember we are a mix of different energy levels, never just ONE single level. There is no "good" or "bad" energy per se, but each type has inherent advantages and disadvantages and can be consciously used to reach specific goals.  It uncovers how you show up to the world—under normal circumstances and when you’re under stress. The ELI provides a baseline of where your energy is showing up right now in your personal and professional roles, and how it is being harnessed to help you progress or hinder your performance. Overall, it helps with the challenge of increasing awareness to be a more effective person.  You can change your score and your likelihood of success because this is an attitudinal assessment, and your attitude is in your control.

Each online assessment takes less than 20 minutes and is later followed up by a debrief session aimed at discussing themes, learnings, and action plans for continued growth. 

ELI Research

Forbes Coaches Council published an article in May 2018 recommending the ELI as the third in their list of “11 Assessments Every Executive Should Take.” Research on the reliability and validity of the ELI Assessment. IPEC Coaching research shows your core energy determines your life potential.


4 benefits of the ELI assessment:

  • An overall increase in self-awareness and emotional intelligence

  • An increase in energy and resiliency

  • Better response to stress triggers and performance under pressure

  • Improved relationships and the ability to understand different perspectives


Attitude vs. Personality

Personality assessments like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram pinpoint set personality types and characteristics. These valuable tools help individuals understand their strengths, embrace their weaknesses, and discover how they can work to their full potential. They typically support a “work with what you have” approach to adapting behavior and pursuing success.

The ELI, on the other hand, is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. It is subjective and based on past experiences and beliefs; thus, it can shift over time. With the awareness and insights gained through the ELI debrief, clients have the opportunity to reshape their attitudes and transform who they are from the inside out.
