Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have the “Midas touch” – so that everything they come in contact with turns to gold? Bruce D Schneider, Ph.D., MCC, founder of iPEC Coaching (www.iPECcoaching.com), can now tell you why. Schneider and iPEC Coaching announced the results of a groundbreaking research study showing the existence of a single factor that determines success in life.
Called the E-FactorTM, this conclusive indicator of success can be determined in 20 minutes using a new online assessment, conceived after 25 years of research in the area of human potential and consciousness. The Energy LeadershipTM Index assessment is based on a tool, the Energetic Self–Perception ChartTM developed by Schneider, that delineates seven different levels of consciousness, or awareness of self and life, with the first two levels being catabolic (negative or destructive) and the next five being anabolic (positive or constructive).
The Energy Leadership Index assessment quantifies the way in which an individual perceives and approaches
life and reacts to different circumstances and experiences, and produces a numerical value – the E-Factor − that indicates the person's level of consciousness. The research shows that higher E-Factors are associated with more success in life.
Here are the 14 indicators of success and the percentage of increase in ratings by participants with an E-Factor of 3.0, as compared to those with an E-Factor of 2.5.
