Your Leadership Legacy
The Difference You Make in People's LivesBook - 2004
Anyone who inspires change in the lives of others is engaged in an act of leadership. ""Leadership legacy"" is the sum total of the difference one makes in those lives, directly or indirectly, formally or informally. The newest title in the Ken Blanchard Series: Simple Truths Uplifting the Value of People in Organizations, this book shows how to ensure that the legacy is positive and transforming.As the book explains, a positive legacy doesn't just happen. The authors lay out a blueprint for success in this often daunting area in seven chapters: The Reading of the Will, Every Journey Begins with One Step, The Fern Is as Good as Dead, The CEO, Back to School, Eagle Junction, and Mooseland Stoneware. The book uses a gardening metaphor, with master gardeners mentoring the reader until they gain the courage it takes to forge a meaningful legacy. The basic principles, supported by years of study and research, include living by certain values and living authentically, which are more inspirational than one's strength of position; fostering emotional connections and trust with the people one works with; and turning a company's dreams and goals into a future that people will want to live in.
