Every one of us has impact. You have impact. All the time.
Success, personally and professionally, is in direct correlation with the impact you intend.
Your impact equates to…
Purposeful intent x clarity and consistency
… in everything that you are and everything that you do.
For the purposes of this book, the term ‘impact’ is used to describe the effect you have on events and on those around you. Having impact expresses the collective impression left by your visual appearance; your presence; the way you connect with others; what you say; how you behave and the lasting effect you have on people after you leave the room.
The Impact Book will help you notice how some people can have such a deep impact on others and to harness this for yourself.
IMPACT WITHOUT MINDFULNESS IS FLAWED
Without mindfulness, without purpose and authentic intention, irrespective of your dramatic style upgrades, your impact is left impotent and empty. True leaders and innovators – Gandhi, Martin Luther-King, Winston Churchill, Steve Jobs – are considered ‘great’ based upon their passion, and their belief in their purpose:
People wanted to follow and believe in their ideas.
Without a sense of what motivates and inspires you, a new suit of different haircut will do little to improve your leadership potential.
THE IMPACT OF FIRST IMPRESSIONS
First impressions are formed quickly, often unconsciously, and they matter. Researchers from New York University found people make 11 major decisions about one another in the first seven seconds of meeting. These judgements are based on a mixture of conscious and unconscious reactions to appearance, gestures, stance, tone of voice, conversational openers, and they establish the foundations for our ongoing relationships.
Through heightening your awareness, evaluating, then adapting the impact you have on others, you can ensure the best possible impact more often and in all your modes of communication. It matters because you cannot possibly predict how interactions can blossom; from a chance meeting comes a key client; from a brief conversation comes a job offer. Impact isn’t only about the ‘big’ moments in your professional life, it is about being present in every moment; this shift in thinking signals your intention that every encounter has the potential to bring something to you, financially, professionally, or personally.
