Daily Leadership Message
A Leader is a man who has Influence while he is in close Proximity. A good Leader is a man who continues to Influence from a distance. A Virtuous Leader’s Influence survives his death through his Legacy.
Legacy is the hallmark of the Virtuous Leader.
To leave a Legacy a man must first nurture his relationships through the DRP, then have IMPACT and ultimately provide Leadership within his Groups. That is why Legacy is the fourth Quadrant—it will not happen without the first three.
To leave a Legacy, a man must build something that outlasts him
IMPACT alone will not guarantee Legacy. For that, the Q must do something more if he wants his Influence to outlast his days on earth. He must be a builder of Effective Organizations and Dynamic Teams.
An Effective Organization realizes its Articulated Purpose. A Dynamic Team accomplishes its Mission and serves the Community or Organization of which it is part.
The Q’s Legacy is not based on what hedoes, but what is done by his followers through the Groups he Leads.
LEGACY: What a Q leaves behind through the Effective performance of his Mission during his life. (Q4.1)
We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Booker T. Washington
