From WeAreTheCity's Future Leaders blog
We were recently inspired by a appearing on Disruptive TV we enjoyed filming a short session about “The Leaders Guide to Impact” published by the Financial Times.
We had such fun drawing on the glass board screen and explaining in more depth about the details in the book.
We all have an impact, every minute every day. Leadership is the act and the art of influencing others so it you have to influence others then you are a leader. This book has something for everyone.
In this clip you can see and hear us talk about the book and the three parts to the book.
Part One – What is Impact? The why and how of achieving Impact
Here we talk about the ripple affect that you can have and how you are a creator of the culture, we all have a responsibility for it.
Part Two – Your impact on your various audiences/stakeholders
In this section we get very specific about the impact you have on your:
- Employees, people who work for you
- Impact on people more senior that you- your bosses
- People at the same level/ your Peers
- Your Impact on the board or senior executive/leadership teams
- Your external impact on your stakeholders
We explain more about the Executive Presence Sweet spot and creating your stakeholder map.
Part Three – Impact for different desired outcomes
We all have to impact outcomes so in this section we describe how you can create greater outcomes . If you want to create the following outcomes you can follow the roadmap:
- Collaborative impact
- Change-driving impact
- Innovative impact
- Business sustainability impact
Great leadership and great teamwork rarely happen by chance. Even the best leaders and the best teams can, with strategic intention and focused effort, become even better – more impactful.
“The Leaders Guide to Impact” is not just a book, it’s a whole impact toolbox.
