FEBI Offerings – Zen Leadership
Close Menu


Meet yourself in a new way, through the lens of the only “personality test” that links mind, body and everyday behaviors.

Discover the 4 energy patterns in your nervous system, which ones you favor and which ones you could use easier access to. Why? Because, even though you’ll have preferences, life will call for all 4. And life gets a lot easier and you’re more effective when you use the right energy at the right time.

Need more focus, discipline, ease with people or big-picture thinking? There’s a pattern for each of those, and ways to physically cultivate it. Let FEBI help you reclaim more of who you are.

what is FEBI?

Focus Energy Balance Indicator (FEBI) is a validated psychometric instrument that measures 4 energy patterns in the nervous system that map to 4  factors of personality, 4 ways of moving, and 4 essential modes of leadership. FEBI doesn’t confine you to a box or confine personality to the head, but rather shows how to work with the body and mind together so you can win on your strengths and use the right energy at the right time.

90% of communication is nonverbal, i.e. subtle body gestures and the energy we project. Isn’t it time you learned what that 90% is saying? The FEBI is the only personality instrument that goes beyond your head to measure the energy patterns of the whole you. It goes beyond self awareness (i.e., knowing habitual preferences) to self regulation and a fluid approach to change. You’ll learn how to access any pattern you need for your life and leadership and how to use the right energy at the right time. FEBI is also a great team tool. You’ll learn how to read the energy of others and communicate in ways that get others moving with you.


looking for a job?

FEBI can show you strengths to leverage, and help you develop a pattern you may need for better networking or that killer interview.

Starting a new job?

FEBI can help you understand your own personality patterns relative to the organization you’re joining, and how to access any pattern you need more of.

Supervising others?

FEBI gives insight into your supervisory style, and how to better understand, develop, and delegate to others.

Needing to influence?

FEBI helps you know yourself and read the energy of others, so you’re able to reach people in ways they can hear.

Building a team?

FEBI helps team members get to know one another, as well as the patterns of team dynamics what’s needed for team success.

Leading in turbulence?

FEBI helps you bring out the right energy at the right time to drive toward your vision, engage others, and sustain your own energy.

How does it work?

When you enter the physical state of a particular pattern, the rest of the mind-body system tends to follow, and out come the behaviors of that pattern expressed in a way that’s natural to you. Authentic yet expansive: that’s what FEBI makes possible.

FEBI goes further than self-awareness to open new possibilities for personal and team development.  These patterns show up in our relationships, team, cultures, and in everything we do, build and lead.  One participant describes, “The workshop changed the social meaning of energy in the workplace. Now I have four lenses on all the time and am valuing all of them..”   Imagine how these patterns can help you become a better coach, bring embodied leadership to your training programs or help leaders in your organization develop real agility.
