Things of interest

Looking forward, people want to achieve success in organizational or performance terms. But looking back, they would like their their efforts to be seen--and felt--in a positive way by the individuals they worked with directly and indirectly."

Legacy thinking allows leaders to put their personal values to work in ways that have long-term impacts on their colleagues and employees--and hence the organization--as well as to assess how their own decisions and actions measure up to their values. The goal is to leave behind you a set of positive and empowering values embedded in the organization.
