Thought-full Thursday: Legacy

Every Thursday, we provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. So take five – enjoy the inspirational quotes or and reflect on the questions that follow. 

“If you are a leader – of a company, a department, a division, or any group of individuals- you will leave a leadership legacy. It won’t be a record of how you behaved or a report card of your company’s performance (although that is how it might be summed up by the press). Instead, your legacy will be revealed in how your colleagues, employees, and others think and behave as a result of the time they spent working with you.”  Robert M. Galford and Regina Fazio Maruca, in Your Leadership Legacy

  • Describe the legacy you wish to leave in six words. What is it? Commit it to memory.
  • How do you want others to think and behave as a result of your legacy?
  • What can you do today to begin acting on your legacy?
  • What can you do tomorrow? Next week? Next year?
