The Human Energy Factor in business and personal life is a topic that I am very interested in. Over the years of observing and talking to people, it has become more and more obvious that human energy is being drained to the point of it being a crisis in many ways. I believe it is the result of the ever-growing demands on our time, our bodies, and essentially our energy.

In a world where we are expected to perform 24/7, the pressure can be daunting; it can be debilitating. I believe that nowadays the pressure to perform never goes away; it often increases. So when demand persistently exceeds capacity, negative consequences are inevitable to business, body, and home-life.

Common symptoms are:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Work/life imbalance
  • Lack of performance
  • Lack of focus
  • Low tolerance for stress
  • Low resilience
  • Disengagement
  • Communication breaks down – with yourself & with others
  • Judgment mistakes
  • Leadership failure

It is time for us to take control back of our lives and be personally responsible.
