We're The Energy Project

We energize people and transform companies.


The way we’re working isn’t working.

In a world of increasing demand and diminishing resources, people are working more hours, spending more time outside work tethered to digital devices, and taking less time to reflect, renew and prioritize. As a result, they’re increasingly exhausted, overwhelmed, and disengaged. It’s not a sustainable way of working for individuals or for organizations.

We help people and companies design a better way of working.

Science tells us that we perform at our best when we move regularly between expending and renewing energy. Rather than trying to get more out of people, the most sustainable companies invest in meeting their employees’ core needs so they’re freed, fueled and inspired to bring more of themselves to work every day.

The Power of Starting With ‘Yes’

When a leader starts with “no,” he shuts down others. At an emotional level, the word “no” translates as “I don’t value what you’re saying,” and “I don’t trust you.” Fear, anger or resignation set in, all of which kill creativity, increase distrust and discourage engagement.
