Is Your Legacy Designed to Last?

Your Leadership Legacy

Your legacy is something you’ll worry about later in your career, at the edge of retirement—right? Not according to Robert Galford and Regina Maruca. In Your Leadership Legacy, these authors argue that thinking about your legacy now makes you a better leader today.

After reading Your Leadership Legacy, any leader would wish that they had read it at the start of their career. It’s a book that actually forces you to think how your day-to-day actions are molding your eventual measure as a leader.

                               Thomas C. Leppert, Chairman and CEO, The Turner Corporation

Based on stories of top managers and leaders who have shaped successful careers, the book explores the art of “legacy thinking,” helping you to formulate a legacy that will have a positive effect on your work immediately.

Topics of Trust, Leadership & Legacy

The authors provide a disciplined approach to framing one’s legacy, as well as planning and shaping it over time. Starting with the idea that your legacy is defined by how others approach work and life as a result of having worked with you, the book enables you to:

  • Assess your current impact on those around you
  • Identify ways to strengthen that impact, and
  • Pass along the best of oneself in the process
  • While many leaders “find themselves” and hone their work accordingly only after a major life crisis, Your Leadership Legacy enables all leaders to craft their work and to build their legacy unburdened by such crises, and to experience both personal satisfaction and achievement throughout their working lives.
