Anese Cavanaugh joins us today to share how she helps people to intentionally create an organization that thrives through establishing a contagious culture. She shares how business leaders and any individual can show up and bring their best selves to the table in order to create a significant, positive impact in their lives.
20 Years in the Making
For the past 20 years, Anese Cavanaugh has been a leader and cultural advisor, working with top innovators and executives in companies like GM Financial, Fitbit, Nike, among others.
Anese has a background in kinesiology, working with athletes, around performance. She then moved into corporate health, productivity, and healthcare. The common theme throughout her entire career is: paying attention to the way people create change and how these people take care of themselves impacts that change.
“Regardless of any organization and any industry, if you’re a human being who wants to have more impact and also enjoy your life and feel really good doing it, the IEP methodology is something that helps us bring more intentionality, more energy, more presence, that’s underneath culture.” – Anese Cavanaugh
Anese is the creator of the IEP Method® (Intentional Energetic Presence®). She is also the author of CONTAGIOUS CULTURE: Show Up, Set the Tone, and Intentionally Create an Organization That Thrives. Another work of hers is: THE LEADER YOU WILL BE: An Invitation (a leadership storybook).
She engages with executives to strengthen team health, unlock leadership potential, optimize company culture, and maximize impact.
“What I have found is that people tend to externalize culture and think that it’s happening around them. It’s actually every single one of us that creates the culture. If you go underneath that culture, it’s our intentional energetic presence.” – Anese Cavanaugh
Finding Your “Why”
Jaime Jay and Anese had a fun exchange of conversation on having the strength to do things that we don’t like. Anese suggested finding the why, the underlying reason why we do things that we do.
For Anese, when it comes to leadership, culture, and change, she advises anyone to be clear about intentions. If one is connected to their intention and the “why,” everything else becomes so much easier.
“You can frame anything into a positive, in every single situation that is happening, even in the most challenging moments of our lives, there are gifts that happening.” – Anese Cavanaugh
