Control Orientation and Intention
Leaders are geared to create impact, but vary on the extent they are guided by an inner calling. The orientation to control indicates how, as a leader, you hold yourself personally responsible to define strategies and drive implementation.

Side Effects

Your team is very important to you. However, you also have to keep an eye on other tasks as a leader. Don’t lose track of your opportunities.


You create a space where your team can improve their skills. If you get the best out of your people, you will also get the best out of your entrepreneurial vision.


If you are constantly concerned about the potential of others, you sometimes forget yourself. Have you ever treated yourself the way you treat your employees?

Make an Impact Diamond. Draw a diamond with its corners and facets. On the facets you can write the qualities that are the base of your business. Are you satisfied with your diamond?

Distribute several Impact Diamonds to your employees and let them write your qualities on the facets of the diamonds. During this time you better leave your employees alone, so they can be anonymous and honest. Then compare your diamond with those of your employees.

What do you notice?

Are there strengths that you were not aware of? Do your qualities match?

Big results require big ambitions.
