Pillars of Impact

Lesson 1

Functional competence is not enough. To create value for yourself, your customers and your company you need to create impact.

What are the other three pillars that create impact?

What are the 7 Impact Competencies that will enable you to evolve from competent to credible, exceptional and then extraordinary?

Context Lens

Lesson 2

People are multidimensional, they are constantly evolving and their context is constantly changing.

So how do you ensure you are picking up the right signals, building empathy and engaging on the things that matter?

Context Lens allows us to see people and their context in a clearer and more granular way.

Signals & Stories

Lesson 3

From the second you interact with someone and every interaction thereafter, people are picking up signals and forming opinions about you.

Your ability to impact them and create value is actually dependant on people’s perception of you.

How do you ensure you’re sending the right verbal and non-verbal signals and that they have the impression you want?

Capture Forest

Lesson 4

Most often the people, projects and tasks we are dealing with are part of something much bigger.

How do we ensure, we’re creating value in the relevant (strategic) context and we are not missing the forest for trees ?

Capture Forest enables us to capture crucial contextual big picture information in a simple, fast, transparent and structured way.

Value Interactions

Lesson 5

You are in constant competition for people’s attention and even if you get their attention, people have short attention spans.

How do you communicate in a way that is compelling, relevant and value creating for yourself and the person you are engaging with?

By understanding and leveraging the five elements of a Value Interaction, you can exchange value and enhance your connection with people on each interaction.

Network LeftRight

Lesson 6

The size and quality of your network will directly influence your ability to impact & create value for yourself and others.

How do you create new meaningful connections, without feeling awkward?

Go from ‘basic networking’ to the ‘best networking’ by adopting the Network LeftRight principle of actively connecting with people who are connections of your existing connections.

Five Star Pitch

Lesson 7

In your role as an impactor and value creator you will often need to present things that don’t exist or are in the future.

This might be a proposed solution to a problem or it may be a new idea. How do you create compelling pitch?

There are five elements to giving a compelling pitch that gets people onboard, takes them on the mental and emotional journey and ensures you are heard, understood and valued.
