- About Us
"In partnership with the Energy Project UK, we have enabled a different conversation to begin around the tired concept of work life balance. We have instead started talking about the need to focus on recovery and building personal and organisational capacity, which I feel introduces a level of realism and pragmatism into the workplace. The degree of creative thinking and focus the Energy Project brings to the table, helps to unlock interesting and boundary shifting solutions."
"This programme has an enormous and immediate impact as it gives the participants practical and sustainable ways to improve the quality and quantity of what they do, in both their work and home environment. Some of the examples of the benefits which our people have quoted and home environment. Some of the examples of the benefits which our people have quoted include; the ability to deal with potentially stressful situations more effectively; the ability to produce work of a higher quality– and to do it quicker; an awareness of situations that can trigger negative reactions and how to deal with them; better quality of time spent with family and friends; and, improved physical wellbeing."
Ruth Walker, Talent Manager, Human Resources Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank
"The principles and practicality of The Energy Project UK are really refreshing, Jean's insight and personal style are highly impactful. Put the two together, stand back and light the blue torch and hold on tight. The results is an engaging, thought provoking learning experience that has more light bulb moments that switching on the national grid!
We have used this learning with both aspiring future leaders and some of the our brightest senior talent, it creates the same result - it gets people taking serious stock about how they use the energy and experience they already have to be happier, more engaged and more productive at the workplace. This is high impact, practical learning that is genuinely life changing for many! If you are looking for a way to get your organisation thinking and behaving differently, you have found it."
Chris Jullings, Director, Organisation Development BT Operate
"The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. People seem relieved that the organisation has recognised the pressures that they are under and that something is being done about it."
Roy White, Senior Vice President, Human Resources Sony Europe
"We have been using The Energy Project™ for several years in helping our Managing Directors manage their energy and direct their efforts in more meaningful ways. These programmes have been mold-breaking for us, and consistently have shown great results."
David Deacon, Managing Director
"The Energy Project is about employee engagement. And what it says on the box is exactly inside. It delivers the “why” to many things we know already we should do to change, live healthier and be better in our jobs and at the same time it also shows us the “how”. I have implemented the programme in two different divisions and I am convinced about the contribution it has had to the overall success of culture change and overall improvement of the employee engagement. I also am applying first principles (rituals) in my daily routine and I believe it has a positive impact on my leadership. It has become a mandatory part of my management principles wherever I join a new business challenge."
Andreas Ditter, Managing Director
"The Energy Project has been a wake up call for ING DIRECT. Their approach delivers. There is a better way to live and work and The Energy Project gets you there."
Jim Kelly, Chief Operating Officer ING Direct
"The Energy Project’s focus is on building personal capacity as the foundation of sustainable high performance and leadership. The way in which each of the pieces fit together and were connected to performance made the experience especially powerful."
Cathering Murchie, Vice-President Mastercard International
"The Energy Project work is helping us manage, prioritise and focus our energy to meet the challenging growth goals we’ve set for our company. Their unique approach is already vitalising our Executive Committee and our teams."
Juan Carlos Dalto, President and CEO The Dannon Company
"Faced with a new global role and keen to meet the needs of my expanded team and the organisation, my days were getting longer and yet I felt that I wasn't achieving very much. The Energy Project has enabled me to re-prioritise my day, so I use my creativity to best effect, tackling challenging projects at the beginning of the day. Through better nutrition, I feel I have more energy to get things done. And my team are appreciative of the example I am setting to ensure we have shorter sharper meetings and together we are getting more done. Thank you!"
Isobel Hoseason, Director of Global Internal Communications National Grid
"It sounds a bit theatrical to say that the programme was life changing but in many incremental ways it has been. I’m more aware of what I eat and how much exercise I take. This doesn’t mean that I’m a paragon of virtue but I’m now more conscious of what’s good for me. I’m also better able to cope with stressful situations and more in control when other people trigger me. Overall, this is the only piece of training that I’ve ever done that I draw from on a daily basis."
Brendon Walsh Ealing Council
"I think the key business benefits for Sony from investing in the individual is firstly, that they’re getting the best from the individual and secondly, Sony is highlighting the fact that they are an employer who actually cares about their employees. There are certain things which you just have to make sure you do everyday and once you have done them everyday they become a ritual."
Jeffry Van Ede, Managing Director Sony Germany
"I used to schedule tough projects for the morning, when I knew that I would be more focused. I don’t have to do that anymore because I find I’m just as focused now at 5pm as I am at 8pm."
Gary Faro, Vice President Wachovia Bank
"The FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS programme approaches the issue of enhancing individual performance from a new and refreshing perspective. Understanding how we can energise people, in order that they can achieve more, in a way that is not about working harder, but smarter, is important not only for line managers but also for the individuals themselves."
Yvonne Coventry NHS
"The Energy Project work gives senior executives the chance to look at the way they live and lead their lives. It asks some big questions and so it's not the most comfortable leadership experience but it's the most significant programme I've ever been on in my 5 years as a senior leader in Sony Pictures Entertainment."
Noriaki Sano, Senior Vice President Sony Pictures Japan
