In helping leaders create their legacy plans, I have developed a set of questions that serve as a foundation for discussion and planning. They are listed here for your consideration and reflection. These four questions are further detailed in my new column “What will you leave for your organization?” in the current issue of the North Bay Business Journal. Click here to read the article.
Food for Thought ~
1. What does your organization need in order to thrive beyond your tenure?
2. How can you influence, shape, and develop your organization to reflect these qualities?
3. What are your unique talents, gifts, and abilities that you can use to create your legacy?
4. What leadership succession plan do you have in place that will increase the likelihood of your organizational development efforts paying off?
Question of the day ~
A legacy is a result of all the decisions, actions and values you choose as a leader. It is not just something you say is your legacy. It is the outcome, the cumulative effect of all that you are and all that you do.
