Circles of control, influence and concern

Organisation: Education Support


The circle of control, influence and concern tool is a management tool that enables us to consider the challenges we are facing and three ways in which we can think about responding to them.

The challenges can be work related or for individuals, challenges related to their personal life, as both impact on mental health and wellbeing at work.

This PDF guide explains how to use these circles to identify the challenges and decisions we face, and determine how we can process them depending on how much control we have over their outcomes.

This guide was written by Education Support, with teachers in mind. However, those working in other industries might also find it useful.
