It takes a miracle to re-ignite a fire once you’ve hosed it down. Skillful leaders use words to energise and release. Foolish leaders rein in and control. 
Everyone has a fire inside. The Leadership’s role is throwing gas on it.

10 principles of energy:

1.    Leading is easy when teams feel energised.

2.    Energy levels are leadership’s responsibility.

3.    Untended fires go out.

4.    Energy is a gift. You can’t buy it.

5.    Energy indicates love. High energy says people are doing what they love.

6.    Everywhere you see energy follow it, study it, and fuel it with words.

7.    Progress and success energise. Create and celebrate wins.

8.    Excellence energises. Mediocrity deflates.

9.    Failure deflates. Evaluate failure and move forward quickly.

10.  Remove wet logs. Energy is contagious but, one wet log cools the whole fire.


7 questions to explore and fuel energy:

Ask seven questions to explore, ignite, maintain, and fuel energy.

1.    Your eyes just lit up, what energised you?

2.    What was energising about that? (The second question is the most important.)

3.    How might we focus your energy to accomplish our mission?

4.    What cools your energy?

5.    How can I fuel your energy?

6.    How can you monitor and maintain high energy?

7.    Who on your team loves to do what you hate?

Tip: Explore low energy when energy is high. Don’t bring it up when people are down.


5 things energising leaders never say:

1.    “Do it my way.” Every time someone does it your way they lose energy.

2.    “It doesn’t matter.”

3.    “Do it or else.”

4.    “I sure told them what to do!”

5.    “Just do your best.” Fuzzy expectations never energise.

It’s easier to throw wood on a fire than to start one from scratch.


6 ways to energise teammates:

1.    Clarify focus. Wandering in the weeds drains energy.

2.    Simplifying next steps.

3.    Keep people in the loop.

4.    Respect their talent and contribution.

5.    Solve meaningful problems together.

6.    Finish something today.
