Leadership Energy

As a business and executive coach, I meet with clients weekly to help them with decisions/strategy, or employee or personal situations that come up. To that end, the first few minutes of our meeting usually sets the tone for what is to come. The energy of the leader is generally a good barometer to how the week has gone. Lower energy normally indicates a less than optimistic or positive conversation and high energy does the opposite.

Positive leadership energy is an important trait of good leadership. Simply put, it refers to the enthusiasm, vitality, and positive attitude that a leader brings to the table. Good leadership fuels, inspires, and motivates teams to do their best. Energetic leaders create a positive work environment, enhance collaboration, and promote innovation and achievement.

Energy sets the tone for the work environment. When a leader brings positive energy to the table, it helps create a work environment that encourages employees to be optimistic, work hard, and contribute to the team’s success. On the other hand, if a leader lacks positive energy or enthusiasm, it can quickly lead to a toxic environment that can harm morale and productivity.

Leadership energy is also important for promoting collaboration and teamwork. When a leader brings energy to the table, they inspire and motivate their team to work together effectively. This leads to better communication, enhanced problem-solving, and more innovation.

It is also important to point out that how the leader acts so does the team. Meaning, the mindset and energy that the leader brings to the team is what they emulate. Positivity and high energy breed that kind of environment and the team will act into it. The same holds true for negative and low energy leaders.

In conclusion, positive energy is vital for good leadership. It sets the tone for the work environment, promotes collaboration and teamwork, and helps achieve specific goals. It is essential for any leader to have high levels of energy, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude to be successful in leading a team to success.

So, what do you do to maintain high energy as a leader?

“When I met Fadi my startup was growing fast, and it was quickly outgrowing me as a leader. Without significant change, it was inevitable that the business that I had co-founded was going to surpass my ability to lead as the CEO. I have been working with Fadi for over the last three years, and I have developed as a leader that has helped to grow my business from 50 people to over 200 people and increased revenue ten times. There is usually a big difference between a business coach and a business consultant. A business coach develops leaders, and a consultant develops a business. Given Fadi’s background as a business leader himself, he is not only great at developing leaders but also able to provide sound business advice in all aspects of running a business. I look forward to every weekly session with Fadi as it helps me to focus on what I need to do as a leader to make tough decisions, coach my team to be better leaders themselves, and gives me the confidence that I need to get through the week. Fadi gets to know you at a personal level where he knows when to pat you on the pack or a give you a subtle kick in the rear. A business coach is not for everyone, but I would highly recommend Fadi to anyone that is looking to grow their leadership and expand their impact across their organization. I can’t thank Fadi enough for what he has done for me personally, my family and my business.”

“Last year I was searching for a business coach and a colleague of mine gave me Fadi's contact information. What I found appealing about his business coaching services was that he worked with other executives that ran businesses outside of my industry (I am an orthodontist in private practice). I believe that many solutions to problems/issues in my field can be found in other industries/professions. His help and experience have made an enormous impact on how I run my business. He has be instrumental in helping me bring my practice to the next level and I have already seen great results that I couldn't imagine a year ago! I highly recommend his business coaching services!”

“I have worked with Dr. Baradihi for 10 months and have found his services invaluable. He has helped me create organization within my business, hire key staff members, formulate a quarterly business plan and understand where / how to invest resources for growth. "You don't know what you don't know" - I can't imagine where I would be without his guidance! He is a man of character and integrity, qualities that are essential for building a successful relationship with a mentor. I am happy to have been recommended his services from a trusted colleague and would gladly refer his coaching services.”

“Fadi has been my coach for 2 years. He is excellent at tailoring his coaching to the needs of the business and my personality style. I am becoming a much more effective business leader thanks to Fadi and his coaching.”
Dr. Neil Kanning
“Fadi is a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable on all matters related to growing and maintaining a thriving business. We have worked with him for years, and have found his insights to be invaluable. If you are interested in the success of your business, if you want to increase profits and decrease stress, or if you just want to take control of your professional life, then you need to give him a call!”

“Dr Fadi has been completely essential to my success. I bought a dermatology practice a year ago and without him it would have been a mess. He is knowledgeable in every arena pertaining to business, leadership and development. He is responsive, professional, and well organized. And now that I know almost 50% of his clients, I can say that everyone else feels the same way I do. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone!”
