A childhood incident where Rebecca Ahmed helped a stranger with a missing leg in her hometown in Pakistan laid the foundation for her interest in philanthropy and people services. Ever since the incident, she has prioritized her value for philanthropy and aligned this value with both her education and workplace. She is proud that the support and resources that she has provided and created have helped hundreds, if not thousands, of people. She also learned lessons from these same individuals, which she regards as priceless energy that has shaped her and fueled the energetic impact that she provides.
Born in Las Vegas, Nevada, Rebecca attended the Meadows School K-12. She pursued a college education from the University of Southern California in Public Relations with a double minor in Business and Communication Design. She went on to do internships and jobs in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York City, but all this led her to one conclusion: she did not want to continue on that career path, but rather walk on one that truly excited and energized her.
Because she loved to work with and for people, in 2010, her passion led her to a career in people services, traditionally known as Human Resources. Over the years, she has helped build numerous resumes, interviewed hundreds of times, and due to her comfort in reaching out to people to learn more about their roles, has accumulated a great wealth of knowledge.
She is an award-winning speaker, writer, business consultant, and an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP), an exclusive training in human energy and how we can experience, express, and expand it in ourselves and others. She is also a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
The Energy Impact
The energy we bring to every situation is based on the way we see things. Becoming more aware of our inherent perspective frees us up to choose differently in ways that enhance our energy and draws us toward greater joy. This is the core ideology on which the foundation of her business consultancy firm “Energetic Impact” is built. The venture is about helping people and organizations enhance, embrace, and grow their energy to successfully accomplish their goals with excitement, ease, and energy.
Creating Motivated Work Culture
Both organizations and people want to succeed and feel accomplished by the work they provide and do. But somehow, this mutual goal is so challenging to accomplish in countless workplaces. Rebecca says that this happens because there is a misalignment of values between companies and their people.
“The first step to building a motivational workplace culture is to evaluate your organization’s current energy levels. I do so by conducting an Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment. Once you’ve assessed the health of your entire organization, you can then create action plans to create energetic shifts where needed,” Rebecca says.
She adds that the future of the workplace embodies five impactful values of power: 1. Diversity (which sparks curiosity) 2. Transparency (ensures authenticity and equality) 3. Personalization (Individuals respond best when their needs are specifically addressed) 4. Flexibility (something that COVID-19 taught us since the percentage of employees working from home went from 2% to 25%), and 5. Efficiency (due to the shape-shifting nature of technology).
Rebecca excels in advising companies on creating a motivational workplace culture by bringing the teams together and leveraging their energies for personal and professional growth. For her relentless philanthropic work, Rebecca was also felicitated with the Top Volunteer award at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas from 2011- 2013 and served as an Advisory Board Member of the HR Exchange Network from 2016-2018. Rebecca is currently working on a book through which she hopes to help people discover and understand the impact of their energy. In turn, they can learn to influence and uplift those around them to create a motivating culture within their respective environments. She advises future businesswomen out there to know their value, communicate their worth, and, most importantly, energize their genius.
