For 2022, the basic leadership positions for SotG we are looking to fill fall into 3 categories(A recap of all our roles and their responsibilities is available at the bottom of this page:
Global Council – Extended advisory board for SotG Global, but with each member leading development of a specific global initiative.
Regional Councils – Crafting a Regional Strategic Plan based on prioritizing 3-5 of those global initiatives & recruiting National Council members
National Councils – Crafting a National Strategic Plan based again on selecting 3-5 specific initiative from the SotG Global menu, AND starting to implement those programs either through a partnership with an existing NGO and/or coaching company and/or networking organization OR establishment of a new SotG chapter in that country. Below are more details.
Individuals are welcome to participate at multiple levels if they have time commitment for both/all three.

Global Working Group Members are the ones who support the Global Council members in helping to advance specific initiatives, typically be attending a 60-90 minute meeting every 1-2 weeks.
Role – Brainstorming, Content development, and/or marketing strategy for specific SotG offerings or NGO topics, i.e. SotG Workshops for Schools, or Youth Leadership NGO programs, or Female Entrepreneurship, etc.

Time Commitment – No specific time commitment
Global Ambassador – Do you have a truly global network and/or social media following? Help promote SotG events and global initiatives as well as inviting your followers/supporters to join our Social Movement

We have a wide array of individuals and teams around the world who want to support SotG by building a business under our brand umbrella. In addition to helping grow our brand, these businesses are also expected to help financially support the foundation in the future, so with discretion, we help support their growth. A few examples are a credit union in Trinidad&Tobago, an Impact Investing consultancy in Switzerland, and a sports company in Turkey.
Our organization has 4 main Pillars and the Strategic Plan listed below explains our current plans for the US. Once we have sufficient leadership in Canada and Mexico, we’ll do the same process there.
1) Developing SotG as the world’s first “crowd-sourced” life philosophy which both provides individuals with an internal framework for choosing a different definition of winning and as a Social Movement which provides the external framework that helps like minded individuals and organizations around the world maximize their positive impact on society.
2) An Impact Coaching division to help raise funds for the non-profit work, and which now has a wide range of offerings for universities, as well as for corporations, SMEs, and start-ups.
3) Typical NGO work which includes applying for grants on Youth Leadership, Women’s Empowerment, and Entrepreneurial support, among others, as well as organizing national/global initiatives and supporting other NGOs
4) A national/global Impact Network of “disruptors of dysfunctional systems” that consists of individuals and organizations from the worlds of non-profit, social enterprise, for profit, academia and government.
Here is a full video overview of these 4 pillars as well as a deeper explanation of the long term goals of the organization/movement.
Here is our State/Provincial Coordinator Handbook. We will begin recruiting for those positions once the national and regional Boards of Directors are more solidified. In the meantime we have created the Ambassador role for people who want to support SotG but either don’t have the time yet for an official position or simply aren’t familiar enough yet with our whole ecosystem to know where they fit in.
Estimated time commitment for the National Boards is 10-20 hours per month, with 5-10 hours per month for the Regional Board members.

Working Group Member
You support the Co-Chairs by attending at least ⅔ of Working Group meetings
You will facilitate communication between the different Working Groups within your division as well as participate in overall strategic planning sessions for your Division
You will attend the weekly or bi-weekly meetings with a goal of establishing a Regional Strategic Plan and you will also help recruit National Council members
You will attend the weekly or bi-weekly meetings with the goal of establishing and then implementing a National Strategic Plan
Individuals are welcome to serve if multiple functions if they have sufficient volunteer time for each role.
THE IMPACTFUL BUSINESS NETWORK will have a largely independent leadership structure. Most of these will be partially paid roles once there are enough members in a city/country/region to justify that stipend.
Recruiting City Coordinators, Leading ongoing training/best practices meetings between City Coordinators
You will be in charge of scheduling local events, both online and in-person, and both social/networking events as well as formal business meetings
You will also be in charge of recruiting and retaining new members, including the initial onboarding interview where you make sure new members are connected with relevant other members in their industry/interest group, both locally, nationally, and globally
You will need to first get certified as a SotG Coach, but if you have a background in corporate, entrepreneurial, or career or life coaching, this is typically a fairly short process
Online Events Coordinator
This position would either be a volunteer position to start, or not a position until there are sufficient members in a country/region. You will help the Coordinators organize and communicate about online events.
In many cases this role will be filled by a volunteer or member who is particularly passionate about a special interest topic, but if the topic is popular enough with the global membership base, this could evolve into a paid role.
