View the Legacy Leadership Process
Organizational Leadership Coaching(R) holds the distinction of being one of a hand full of Legacy Leadership Master Trainers in the world. As Master Certified Trainers we can certify people and organizations in all three levels of Legacy Leadership. The unique aspect of Legacy Leadership is that the model does not focus on the legacies leaders leave at death or departure from an organization, but rather the legacy one makes every day in the lives of others he/she leads. The model is based on the work of Jeannine Sanstrom and Lee Smith (Master Certified Coaches (MCC) with the International Coaching Federation) and embeds 5 Leader Best Practices into the behaviors of leaders that will transform organization culture and impart legendary influence. People who have been under the nuture of a legacy leader simply are never the same and learn by experience to be true servant leaders. Each Best Practice is composed of one part "Being" and two parts "Doing." Note this as we list the 5 Best Practices:
- BP 1 - Holder of Vision and Values TM
- BP 2 - Creator of Collaboration and Innovation Tm
- BP 3 - Influencer of Inspiration and Leadership Tm
- BP 4 - Advocator of Differences and Community TM
- BP 5 - Calibrator of Responsibility and Accountability TM
What Is Legacy Leadership®?
Legacy Leadership® is the wisdom of the ages structured and packaged for today’s - and tomorrow’s - leaders. Its truths and Best Practices are timeless, proven keys to sustained significance and form the foundation for real-time legacy in today’s business environment. Legacy Leadership® is a complete program—a philosophy, a process, and a model. Legacy Leadership® is not a leadership style—it is a life system and a way of “being,” not just “doing.”
This vital and highly adaptable model was developed as the result of over 40 years of the combined experiences of the CoachWorks® principals in individual, corporate, and organizational leadership development. Legacy Leadership® is more than a program. The founders of CoachWorks International have refined reliable, time-honored principles into an intentional, powerful system for success—today and tomorrow, for self and for others.
Are you living your legacy? “Legacy” is commonly defined to be something you leave behind when you’re gone. What if you were living your legacy now? What if your vision for the future was evident in everything you do, every day? It can happen.
Drs. Lee Smith and Jeannine Sandstrom developed the Legacy Leadership® program as a result of their work with business leaders in all sec- tors. When they observed the most common behaviors of successful leaders, they identified the Best Practices that set outstanding leaders apart from their peers. When they listened to the deepest issues that were on leaders’ minds, they were matters of legacy. The Legacy Leadership® program was developed as a map for ensuring excel- lence in leadership practices that would enable leaders to leave the legacy they intended.
CoachWorks® International has isolated, defined, and made transferable the practices common to leaders who are able to achieve and sustain success—with people, product, and revenue. Legacy Leadership® is based on 5 Best Practices which are common in all great leaders, whether it be the ancients whose successes leap from the pages of history, or the Fortune 500 leaders of today—and will be observed in the leaders of tomorrow.
The Legacy Leadership® Institute 1-3 Day Courses all cover the 15 elements of the 5 Best Practices and the Crucial Success Skills of each. Each practice is treated as a unit to integrate its understanding into concrete behaviors for perpetual application and growth. Legacy leadership® is directed not only at the behaviour of the leader but also focuses greatly on the development of subordinates / reports and others. Therefore, the Institute focuses on both internal and external application. Each Institute starts with a leadership challenge, explores the definitions of each leadership Best Practice, examines the spheres in which one leads, and then dives into the content of the 5 Best Practices. Depending on which module is being taught, Each Best Practice is then unpacked with solid definitions, practical applications and supplemental contemporary leadership wisdom.
All of the ’In the Room’ programs offer the full spectrum of the Legacy Leadership® System which is unpacked for understanding and integration. The full experience is achieved in the 3 day experience.
