In my experience, many EAs help and support others in the community (e.g., by giving feedback, emotional support, or making connections etc).
These 'helpful EAs' often improve the impact of those who receive their help (e.g., because the receivers start new collaborations, or improve their productivity or career choice etc). I'll call this impact 'indirect interpersonal impact'.
Most helpful EA's indirect interpersonal impacts are illegible (i.e., hard to capture/show). This means that many EAs who have high indirect interpersonal impact (e.g., via helping many others or being a good knowledge broker/connector etc) are undervalued relative to those who mostly focus on doing their own projects(but who may benefit from the help of many others).
I think that this is probably important to address. It seems important to acknowledge and recognize the contributions of individuals who may not necessarily have a tangible output or project to show for their efforts, but may still have had a significant positive impact on others.
With the above in mind, I am wondering if anyone has a form to capture indirect interpersonal impacts or similar, or some resources that they use or recommend using?
I am not aware of anything which exists. I would like to either adapt or make something to use myself and share with others. I think that 80,000's evaluation model is probably the best template to work from, but I haven't investigated that yet.
I'd also welcome any thoughts on the claims made above and whether they resonate or seem incorrect.
