9780071829847: Leading with Your Legacy in Mind: Building Lasting Value in Business and Life

This is an indispensable guide for leaders who want to leave a lasting legacy on their organization by leaving a positive culture that benefits all.

Leading business coach Dr. Andrew Thorn's work unfolds an entirely new perspective on legacy and invites the reader to shift his or her thinking from goals to aspirations, from balance to focus, from results to commitments, from achieving to becoming, and from outcomes to actions. Including the instructive and inspiring stories of leaders working on legacy issues while improving their organizations, this book contains transformative action steps and prescriptive exercises that will improve your company and your life.

Practical, strategic, and full of invaluable wisdom, Leading with Your Legacy in Mind can be the beginning of your path to harmonizing your professional life and your personal life. It's about focusing on the right things in both aspects of your life--the only true way to live and lead with purpose and create a legacy to be proud of. Learn how to create the most meaning in both your personal and professional domains by reframing:

  • Passion into purpose
  • Change into growth
  • Goals into aspirations
  • Balance into focus
  • Listening into hearing
  • Ambition into meaning

You're a natural leader. Leading is about making positive change in lives and organizations. You already take it seriously; taking it personally is the next step.

The key to lasting leadership--and a life well lived--is simpler than you think.
