Are You New to the IEP Method®?

If you're new to learning about the IEP Method, here are some resources to help get you acquainted with the premise of the framework. 

What is the IEP Method?

The IEP Method (Intentional Energetic Presence®) is ACI’s proprietary methodology and impact model at the heart of our leadership and training programs. Your IEP is the energy you bring to the room and how people experience you each and every moment.

There are three main components of the IEP Methodology:

  • Rebooting your presence
  • Building a strong energetic field and foundation
  • Creating intentional impact

Creating a solid Intentional Energetic Presence will inspire you to take initiative in your life, collaborate more effectively, show up more powerfully, create the impact you want — AND honor your well-being while doing so. Plus, through intentional leadership and the IEP framework, you can help create a positively contagious workplace culture!

Are You Ahead of the Game? Why Proactively Optimizing Your Company Culture Makes Strategic Sense

At Active Choices, Inc., our team regularly interacts with leaders in organizations who are interested in supporting and optimizing their company culture.

Let’s delve into some of the top reasons why being ahead of the game in cultivating a positive culture is not just a choice, but a strategic necessity for leaders and executives to pay attention to:
