Using Your Leadership Legacy as an Educational and Leadership Development Resource

Two syllabi based on building leadership legacies are available.

The first syllabus, Building Leadership Legacies, covers a comprehensive, semester-long course, targeted largely at MBA and similar graduate programs for use in the areas of Leadership, Leadership Development, Organizational Behavior and/or Organizational Development. It looks closely at how successful leaders build long-term, enduring legacies, and how best to reproduce those characteristics in one’s own career and in the careers of others.

The second, shorter syllabus, Your Leadership Legacy: How to Look Toward the Future to Make You a Better Leader Today, is designed for use in either an MBA or Executive Education program. It focuses more closely on one’s own development as a leader. This set of sessions is intended to provide guidance to individuals on how to build a successful leadership legacy, and to be a better leader today. As a result, it can either be structured as a shorter course, or it can be easily integrated as a component of a broader course on individual leadership.

Both versions employ a variety of tools, including readings, case studies and self-assessments, and also offer a set of exercises to be completed that can serve as the basis of in-class discussion, small-group work, or personal reflections that serve as a culminating paper or course assignment. Finally, the authors are willing, available time permitting, to serve as session design resources, offer advice on the book’s use as a part of curricula, and furnish a set of instructional Powerpoints at no charge to instructors using the book as part of a course curriculum at accredited academic institutions.




The authors are available to work with instructors at accredited educational institutions by:

  • Delivering guest lectures
  • Conducting workshops
  • Collaborating on custom materials

Rob Galford has taught executive programs at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business, the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, and most recently at Harvard University.
