Read the article we have written for WeAreTheCity here: Impact in three parts
Are you a leader or want to be one? Then check this out!
This week, we want to share a short video that we made about “The Leader’s Guide to Impact”.
The book is the next in the popular series from the Financial Times called “The Leaders Guide to …..” and in this video we talk about the three important parts of the book and how they are relevant to your impact.
In this section we really make you think about the impact that you have on the world around you and those people who are influenced by you. We ask about your awareness muscle and how developed that awareness muscle is. Leadership is about being aware of the effect you have on others and that starts with your own self-awareness. How are you impacting those around you minute by minute. We all have an effect, whether it be good or not so good. So, let’s make sure we are intentional about it
In this part of the book we get into great detail on the impact you have on the audiences around you, we look at your impact on:
- Your employees
- People who are more senior than you
- Your peers or people at the same level as you
- The board
- Your external stakeholders; including media/press and social media
In this section we move into the impact you have on specifics outcomes you want to create, we focus in on 4 key areas:
- Change driving impact
- Creating a more collaborative impact
- How to drive an innovative impact
- And finally, a sustainable impact, driving a more long-term sustainable business
The book covers all of these using examples, giving you tips and techniques to maximise your impact. We also spend time in each chapter explaining the impact that all of this has on the culture, your effect on the organizational culture.
