Every day you make a difference. Will it be large or small? Lasting or fleeting? The truth is, you shape your own leadership legacy. And you do it right now.
What Great Leaders Know
Great leaders are crystal clear about the legacy they want to create. While ordinary leaders tend to defer thinking about their legacy until they approach retirement, great leaders dedicate every day of their careers to building significant, enduring value they can leave to their organizations, customers, communities and colleagues.
Building your leadership legacy starts with three crucial questions:
Who am I? What are my core values? What key experiences shaped me?
What is my purpose? What unique, lasting contribution am I meant to make?
How do I show up? Will my actions today make my legacy more real? Am I being the leader I aspire to be
Will you make a difference?
Without the driving force of legacy, your efforts will dissipate into a series of loosely joined initiatives. Time goes by fast. Don’t wait another day to consciously craft your leadership legacy.
Do I work with a long term perspective? Or mostly race the clock?
How clearly have I defined the difference I intend to make in this world?
What am I doing right now to create the legacy I want?
