When we have to explain why something happened, we would write:
My colleague has fallen ill. As a result, we’ll have to wait a bit longer on his work.
Even though ‘consequences’ and ‘results’ are essentially the same thing, we only say ‘as a result’. ‘Impact’ is a very strong word and doesn’t belong here. Also, even though ‘for this reason’ makes good sense, native speakers never actually use it.
The train was delayed. As a result, I barely made my connection in Bonn.
