Builds capacity for greater resilience and more sustainable high performance

Reduce burnout, improve engagement, and increase retention

In a world marked by relentlessly rising demand and complexity, people at all levels in companies are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, disengaged, and at risk of burnout.

PeopleFuel is a scientifically grounded program that equips participants with essential tools to manage their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy.

How it works

PeopleFuel helps participants assess how effectively they’re managing the expenditure of energy. This begins with taking the Energy Audit which provides participants with detailed feedback across four energy dimensions: physical, emotional, mental , and spiritual.

The Energy Quadrants provide a framework for understanding the four different ways that people can feel across the day and the impact each one has on their relationships and their performance. We also introduce the value of balancing the expenditure of their energy with intermittent renewal in order to get more done, in less time, more sustainably.

Finally, we help participants to become aware of the internal and mostly invisible resistance to change that inevitably arises – along with how to work through it.

PeopleFuel can be utilized for:


  • Individual development
  • Team applications
  • Leadership development

Who should attend?

PeopleFuel offers a basic set of precepts and tools that are applicable at all levels in an organization, and especially to leaders, who serve as Chief Energy Officers for those they lead.

Key outcomes

  • Greater self-awareness, especially around your energy, emotions, reactions, and resistance.
  • More effective energy management so that you can accomplish more, in less time, at a higher level of quality, and in a more sustainable way.
  • Higher Ievels of resilience, engagement, and satisfaction.
  • Less exhaustion and burnout.
  • Improved communication and relationships.
  • Recognition of habitual patterns of resistance.
  • Smoother adaptation to organizational change and disruption.

Diagnostics and tools provided

  • The Energy Audit can be used as an ongoing assessment of how fully fueled you are across the four energy dimensions.
  • The Energy Quadrants offer a rapid way to diagnose what you’re feeling, and how that’s influencing your performance and leadership.

Participants become aware of their mostly invisible resistance to change – along with how to work through it.

Program options


This program teaches leaders how to fuel their team’s energy across four dimensions: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The primary focus is on helping leaders build a balance between challenging and nurturing those they lead, so they are able to grow, develop and perform more effectively and sustainably.

How It Works

This program provides leaders with a unique opportunity to better manage and renew the energy of their teams. During this interactive workshop, participants analyze their current practices and identify the specific leadership challenges they face. Then, they learn strategies to work through conflict, develop more effective ways to provide feedback, and reconnect with their own core purpose and vision.


Key Outcomes

  • Deepen awareness of how you show up as a leader.
  • Avoid team burnout, negativity, distraction, and disengagement.
  • Better manage rising demand and diminishing resources.
  • Clarify and deepen your sense of leadership purpose
  • Build and sustain highly energized and productive teams.


This program is an eight-session journey combining teaching, discussion, and practice focused on cultivating energy and resilience in a world of increasing demand. These sessions create space for intact teams to address the key issues holding them back from full effectiveness.

How It Works

The course is an opportunity for teams to realize a different way of working and leading. They will look more deeply into their beliefs, assumptions, mindsets, and blind spots, as well as explore what it will take to create a more trusting, more collaborative, and higher-performing team.

Throughout the process, we’ll work to connect the core principles of this work to specific individual and collective development opportunities. Teams will walk away with increased awareness, stronger communication, and a vision and plan for the team they want to be and the impact they want to have.


Key Outcomes

  • Foster psychological safety to improve communication and collaboration.
  • Increase energy across four dimensions for team resilience and sustainability.
  • Balance intense tactical focus with big-picture thinking to fuel innovation.
  • Identify the biggest challenges and explore approaches to address them proactively.
  • Approach conflicts and challenges differently to learn and grow.
  • Build collective self-awareness to encourage effective prioritization and decision-making.

What leaders say about PeopleFuel

I found that People Fuel really fuels the organization. It enables your people to evaluate where they are from a mental, a physical and an emotional perspective and also to do a check on “Am I living the purpose that I want to live.”

Abbe Luersman

Former CHRO, Ahold Delhaise, EVP and Chief People Officer, Otis Elevator

Our employees had a chance to experience PeopleFuel to help recharge, work on our individual resilience and find that missing balance. I would recommend PeopleFuel to any organization or team that needs their batteries recharged.

Andy Shimberg

CEO, Crucial Learning (formerly VitalSmarts)

Being able to perform at the very top of your profession requires a deliberate approach on how you recharge your energy. We worked closely with The Energy Project to help our partners develop key energy habits that would allow them to perform at their best in a sustainable fashion.

Matthias Birk

Global Director of Partner Development, White & Case

I have a firm belief that a business should grow its brand and its people in an equal manner. Renewal is the prerequisite for sound business decisions. The impact of The Energy Project on me is profound, durable and is making me a better person beyond a better leader.
