Anese's IEP (Intentional Energetic Presence) methodology has been a secret weapon for leaders at some of the most innovative, creative organizations in the world, including IDEO, Zingermans and Cooper. I've had the privilege to attend one of Anese's workshops and seen firsthand how effective and pragmatic her work is - it made an immediate difference in my effectiveness as a CEO. Moreover, Anese is one of those rare human beings that truly walks her talk - she shows up with a grace, generosity and confidence that immediately transforms the environment she's in. Now, we can all learn to do the same by understanding the exact method she uses and has taught to many of the most innovative leaders in the world.
Every day when I walk out my door I actively work to “set my intention.” This book has provided me more tools in my toolbox to help carry myself in a professional, positive way. If I want others to be engaged, I need to lead by example. Pretty simple stuff yet often hard to recall as I go about my days and interact with colleagues, family and friends.
It doesn’t matter if you lead a large group or you manage projects – this book has something for everyone. I loved it so much and was inspired to a degree I’ve not felt in a long while. Taking the message to heart – be contagious with the culture you want to live in – I outfitted my business unit with copies of this book. It’s that good. I was inspired to share the author’s message to as many as I can.
This is one of those books that will be dog-eared and marked up with multiple readings over time. It’s a valuable and timeless message that hits home for wherever you are personally or professionally. Well done Anese Cavanaugh.
Even though I am not a leader of a large team or organization, this book has nevertheless spoken to me as a small biz owner and coach. I’ve enjoyed this deeper look at the ways I already am “contagious” to my small support staff, my clients, course participants, and, of course, my own self. Anese’s passion for this work comes clearly through these pages, and I found this book a profound, yet also smooth and easy, read.
First - it's compelling and fun to read... There are real people stories - people you can relate to, and want to follow.
Second - it's about so much more than "Culture." Culture is such a corporate buzzword, but the truth is any culture is made up by individual people. What we call a "culture" is just a byproduct of their attitudes & actions - how they show up, how they treat each other, what they bring to the table.
What you quickly discover from this book is the individual impact that YOU have - whether it's at work, in a classroom, or in your family - you have more impact than you know... Which means you can influence the outcome!
What Anese provides in this book are EASY ACTIONS you can take help you not only have more impact, but get more clear on ideal outcomes, and make the most of your personal IEP.
You owe it to yourself, your teams, your company, your family, and the causes you care about to get this book and expand your IEP. You'll be glad you did!
