Leadership with heart, mind, and soul

Leadership Lesson #4: Legacy is About Impact

Added on by Sam Davidson.

Legacy isn't about titles or elections; it's about impact and relationships.

For those who lead, it's easy to get caught up in the titles that will appear on a resume and the perceived prestige that comes with an "official" leadership capacity. But, any member has as much potential to impact someone else as a president does. Anyone can forever change someone else regardless of title.

And this is ultimately how our legacy will be measured: not in leadership titles earned, but rather in hearts and minds impacted. If you're looking to lead, don't wait to be elected. Go ahead and act on the desire you have to make someone or something else better.

Legacies aren't written in minute books or on composite photos; they're written on the hearts of others.
