Welcome Book Launch Team

I’m excited for your help in the launch of my debut book CIRCLE OF IMPACT: TAKING PERSONAL INITIATIVE TO IGNITE CHANGE! Writing this book has been a labor of love, and the culmination of 30 years of study helping organizations experiencing change.

  • Other bonuses to be announced

This webpage serves a central location for information about the launch, the book and resources you’ll need. You can help in many different ways:

Your Amazon Review: This is the **biggest** and most important step in anything and everything we do together. {{ Again, please wait until September 18 to leave your review. }}

Here’s why: Based on research about book sales and rankings, the most valued action is to attempt to collect as many Amazon.com reviews as humanly possible on ONE single day. Amazon will see the flood of activity and automatically make a listing more searchable and increase its ranking, because it will be perceived as popular.

Things to know before you submit your review on Amazon:

  • If you haven’t finished reading the book, I encourage you to still leave a review of your opinion on the book thus ­far. I believe you can go back and edit, if you see fit.
  • You may disclose that you were given a free, early digital review copy of the book
  • Please be honest with your rating and do *not* feel pressured to write a positive or 5­-star review. Simply adding your voice and your review will achieve the goal we’re aiming for. I promise: no hard feelings if you don’t love the book. ;)
  • Please use THIS page of Amazon, to leave your review: https://amzn.to/2KNWPYM

All leadership begins with personal initiative that creates impact that makes a difference that matters.

In Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative to Ignite Change, Dr. Ed Brenegar offers a new perspective on leadership and a model for tapping unrealized potential in people through leadership initiative. Rather than job titles or appointed roles, he focuses on the impact individuals can make in their lives, workplaces and communities to create a better world.

In Circle of Impact, readers will learn:

  • The Circle of Impact model of leadership, as well as explores personal and organizational leadership.
  • A perspective on change that brings insight into not only why things are as they are in the world, but also how we can deal with change both personally and organizationally.
  • How the components of the Circle of Impact model can bring wholeness and order to organizations, aligning the whole of our organizations for impact and creating the conditions for fostering a high-trust, agile culture.
  • How the Circle of Impact applies to organizations amid a global transition.

Dr. Ed Brenegar is a Leader for Leaders working with individuals, their teams, organizations and communities who find themselves at a point of transition. Ed has developed an innovative leadership model called, Circle of Impact, that clarifies what the impact of their life or the work of their organization can be. From this perspective, impact is the change that makes a difference that matters. Ed. for over 30 years, has inspired and equipped people and organizations to practice this fresh understanding of leadership. All leadership begins with personal initiative to create impact that makes a difference that matters. Everyone within an organization or a community can, therefore, practice leadership initiative. In so doing, they turn what were once leadership-starved organizations into leader-rich cultures that make a difference that matters.
