Circle of Impact In Practice Project
How To Live a Life of Meaning and Impact in a World that is in Transition.
The Circle of Impact in Practice
The Circle of Impact model is a comprehensive treatment in a simplified form for functioning as a leader of impact. It has multiple applications. It is a problem-solving tool. A strategic planning tool. An evaluation tool. A charting progress tool. A meeting planning tool. It can be used in business, community events, and with families.
When I first identified the relationship between the three dimensions of leadership - Ideas, Relationships, and Structure, all I was doing was identifying the patterns of behavior that I saw in organizations. Over time as I used the model to answer questions, I came to realize that I had created the Swiss Army knife of leadership models. Learn to use the model, and no obstacle can stand in your way of improvement.
I know that sounds like an overstatement. However, if you know me, I am not oriented to bluster and overstatement. When I say, it is a universal problem-solving tool of the first order, it really is.
The Next Stage in the Development of the Circle of Impact
While everything I said above is true, it is clear to me that the Circle of Impact has not reached a level of understanding to make it compelling enough for people to adopt it. Therefore I am beginning a project to develop a follow-up book to Circle of Impact. At this point, I don’t know what it looks like.
What I do know is that I want to work on this book in the most practical sense possible. So, I’m going to write it here on Substack with you. We will follow the process that I created called Impact Day. It is a program that I use in my coaching work. It produces clarity and direction for taking action.
If you want to participate, I ask that you become a paid subscriber. I do this because this will be an investment not only in the next book but also in your own life. Become a paid subscriber by May 1, stick with me through to the end, and you be listed as a contributor to the book. In addition to my gratitude, you’ll get a signed copy of the book.
I will post draft content here on Substack with a brief introduction for the wider audience. The rest of the content will be there for you to read.
We will not only discuss the content of the book. We’ll identify the audience for the book. We’ll discuss how to promote the book while writing it. As far as the project goes, everything is on the table, except not writing it. Okay. This is a great opportunity to participate in a project that involves content development, communication planning, marketing strategy, and, finally, promotion through a network of relationships process.
During the project, you’ll receive a half-hour coaching session with me each month to talk about your specific focus in our process. There will also be a monthly group Zoom call to discuss the content of the book. Timing for that call will be established based on where participants live. Lastly, at the end of the process, I will invite you to be interviewed on my podcast, The Eddy Network. What you learn can make a difference to someone somewhere. When we can share with the world the lessons that we have learned, we create a global environment for leadership impact to be developed.
Welcome to the Circle of Impact in Practice Project.
Thank you for participating. Once notification of your paid subscription comes to me, I’ll send you a form by the end of April where you can provide me with your contact information and a mission statement for the project. I will also send you a signed copy of Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative To Ignite Change. For overseas participants, I will have a print-on-demand copy sent to you by Amazon.
The Circle of Impact model will guide us through this process. At the end, you will be experts in the application of the model.
