The best leaders and managers create change. They are able to create a vision, communicate an idea and in particular encourage action from others. What is it about these leaders and managers which makes others want to follow, engage and to act? The term describes the effect we have on those around us. Having impact expresses the collective impression left by our visual appearance, our presence, the way we connect with others and the lasting effect we have on people when we have left the room. This book provides 50 short but powerful ways to raise your impact level in business. Taken together, it forms a code to enable you to create response in others and to ensure that every encounter (within your company and outside of it) has the potential to bring something to you, whether that be financially, professionally or personally.
I've known Simon for around 10 years and have truly valued his coaching skills. I enjoyed "The Simple Way", but "The Impact Code" raises the bar to a new level. The chapters are short and punchy. The ideas have real practicality, and the tone of the material helps motivate you to try things out. Congratulations on a great book Simon - already looking forward to the next one!
