Jeff Sinelli's most important job, as founder and chief vibe officer of the Which Wich restaurant chain, is to make sure "the positive energy of Which Wich is inside every store." He believes positive vibes are the core of their business, which helps them make better sandwiches and a better world. 

This is Amare in action, putting the uplifting and connecting energy of love to work. Without it, what have you got? (And don't get hung up on the phrase "positive vibes." It's the idea that matters -- call it whatever you want).

As an Amare love-powered leader, fostering positive energy everywhere is a crucial part of your job. It is not to be ignored, delegated, or minimized. The energetic tone you set at the top cascades throughout the organization and affects everyone and everything.

  • Does your organization run on positive energy? Do you?

  • Do you know how to effectively create and sustain positive energy within your organization?

  • Do your board and business culture support you in doing so?

Here are three Amare ways to build more positive energy into your organization.

1. Make it a choice.

Choose to make positive energy the fuel that keeps your organization going and growing. Here are 10 ways to get started, where you can catch the wave of leaders putting love to work. 

2. Make it your own.

Consider what "positive energy" (feel free to plug in your preferred phrase) looks like in action in your organization, what you can say and do to encourage more, and how you know it's happening. List three specific things you can do to make the idea really resonate with your people and culture.

3. Make it matter.

Add a positive energy metric to your dashboard. Work with your team to figure out how to meaningfully measure and track positive energy within your culture. And make the results highly visible.

Successful companies are far more sustainable when they run on regenerative positive energy, rather than the depleting war-like energy of fighting and negativity. For your company, positivity begins with you.
