It has been a whirlwind of a year so far for SotG Global. So far in 2021, we have recruited 72 National Coordinators across 65 countries. Along the way we also:
A) Launched a global Impact Coaching Coalition
B) Developed a full suite of coaching offerings for Universities,
C) Put together a coalition to apply for a $2,000,000 grant from Google.org for a global Impact Accelerator for Female Entrepreneurs.
We also started running online panel discussions, began the selection for the SotG100, revamped our website and further solidified our 4 Pillars framework.
Now we’re starting a major push in North America where we’ll be assembling National Boards for each of our 4 Pillars as well as 8 Regional Boards which coordinate activities in that region between the various Pillars.
Along the way we’ll be establishing partnerships with coaching companies and NGOs and running online events at times more conducive to the western hemisphere! As soon as Covid allows, we’ll be starting in-person events in select cities(DC & NYC so far), and we’re hoping for a big fall coaching tour with retreats, workshops for universities and corporations, and running Train the Trainer sessions to solidify our US coaching corps.
Our organization has 4 main Pillars and the Strategic Plan 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. In the US we have identified Minority Entrepreneurship as a key area where we can make a difference with our network, our philosophy, and our approach.
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.
If you would like the non-narrated version you can view it here.
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 famliar 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.
Over time, as the National and Regional Boards become established and SotG activities accumulate, there will probably arise the need for a National Council to help coordinate the activities of the different Pillars. This Council will likely contain representatives from the National Boards, SotG coaches and other businesses, our NGO partnership network, as well as government/academia.
