Two internationally recognized experts in the field of leadership and authors of the bestselling "Leadership Challenge" explore a variety of today's most critical and difficult leadership issues, including the issue of legacy. Kouzes and Posner examine in twenty-two chapters the critical questions all leaders must ask themselves in order to leave a lasting impact. These powerful essays are grouped into four categories: Significance, Relationships, Aspirations, and Courage.
In each essay the authors consider a thorny and often ambiguous issue with which today' s leaders must grapple-such as how leaders serve and sacrifice, why leaders need loving critics, why leaders "should" want to be liked, why leaders can't take trust for granted, why it' s not just the leader' s vision, why failure is always an option, why it takes courage to "make a life, "how to liberate the leader in everyone, and ultimately, how the legacy you leave is the life you lead.
A Leader's Legacy is Kouzes and Posner's most personal and compelling work to date. "By asking ourselves how we want to be remembered, we plant the seeds for living our lives as if we matter. By living each day as if we matter, we offer up our own unique legacy. By offering up our own unique legacy, we make the world we inhabit a better place than we found it." - From the Introduction.
