active CEO Podcast #145 LEGACY Your Mark On The World

active CEO Podcast 145 Legacy Your Mark On The World

LEGACY Your Mark On The World

Legacy, we have all been put on planet earth for a reason. Why not leave it in a better place than you found it?

Having a purpose in life and aligning it to the work that you do is important if you wish to enjoy what
you do, be productive and perform at a high level. Some people have a desire to go beyond the world
they work in and leave a legacy for future generations to benefit from. CEO Legacy is all about finding
a greater purpose through a project or movement that creates a ripple effect across an area, industry
or the world.

A great example of this is Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is guided by the
belief that every life has equal value. They wish to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In
developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift
themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all
people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to
succeed in school and life.

What mark do you want to leave on the world?

What is a person’s legacy?

  • part of a person that lives on long
  • story of a person so they are not forgotten.
  • path ways or the future
  • make better decisions in life.
  • transmitted, inherited or received from a predecessor.
  • creates meaning in our lives.

Everyone leaves behind a legacy after they die, but only few people leave behind a legacy worth talking about.

Examples of legacies that impacted humanity:

  • Martin Luther King jr. left behind his legacy of positive and selfless actions.
  • Adolf Hitler left behind a legacy of negativity, and destruction.
  • A grandmother’s legacy may be important her family
  • Actresses and actors legacies inspire people to do great things
  • Alexander the Great, whose conquering spirit changed the face of the ancient world
  • Marie Curie, multi-Nobel Prize winner and pioneering physicist
  • Nelson Mandela, an anti-apartheid revolutionary and South Africa’s first black president
  • Albert Einstein created the theory of relativity
  • Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun and founder of the Missionaries of Charity.
  • Oprah Winfrey pillar of kindness and has stood for truth, education, and giving back.

A legacy is

  • the story of some ones life,
  • the things they did,
  • places they went,
  • goals they accomplished,
  • their failures,
  • a path that guides people in decisions with what to do or what not to do

A lasting legacy is all about the actions you take during your life and the way those actions affect how people remember you.

Everyone has a choice between leaving a positive legacy or a negative one. Most people never consciously choose one or the other — it just happens. But the goal for you is to make a conscious decision about the legacy you’ll leave.

DESIGN A PATH TO YOUR LEGACY

  1. What intrinsically drives you?
  2. What matters to you the most?
  3. Who do you want to impact
  4. How can you achieve this through helping and serving others?

The legacy of successful leaders lives on through the people they touch along the way. The only things you can change permanently are the hearts of the people you lead.

Think how you can Make the World a Better Place, One Life At a Time

active CEO Podcast 143 Vulnerable Open Honest Communication

active CEO Podcast #143 Vulnerable Open Honest COMMUNICATION

active CEO Podcast 143 Vulnerable Open Honest Communication

Vulnerable Open Honest COMMUNICATION

As leaders it is important that we create a safe psychological space for vulnerability & open honest communication.

Great leaders create a space for effective communication, whereas poor leaders allow poor communication to occur by itself.

Communication should always be a dialogue, not a monologue, and therefore ensure everyone has a voice at the table, is heard and respected.

To ensure people have trust to be vulnerable enough to display open and honest communication, they first need a safe psychological space. Remember, people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Richard Branson describes communication as the most important skill a leader can possess”.

SAFE PSYCHOLOGICAL SPACE

Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes.” … A solid team should be able to bounce ideas off each other, strengthen action plans, help solve issues and provide support to each other.

Psychologically safe team members “feel confident that no one on the team will embarrass or punish anyone else for admitting a mistake, asking a question, or offering a new idea.” 

Psychological safety is as important to team or company success as employee experience and workplace culture.

Simon Sinek notes in the Circle of Safety “leadership reduces the threats people feel inside the group, which frees them up to focus more time and energy to protect the organization from the constant dangers outside and seize the big opportunities.”

VULNERABILITY

Vulnerability has traditionally been viewed as a weakness in the workplace, and the thought of being exposed — flaws, imperfections, challenges, and all— is, for most people, completely terrifying.

But the conversation about vulnerability in our culture is starting to change. And as it turns out, being vulnerable at work isn’t a liability — it’s an asset.

Dr. Brené Brown defines vulnerability as “uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure.” She also notes that “Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable.”

OPEN HONEST COMMUNICATION

Being clear, open and honest gives the impression of authenticity and integrity, essential foundations for true collaboration.

Open and honest communication leads more quickly to a mutual understanding and respect for a difference in views, interests and needs.

As a leader how will you create a safe psychological space for vulnerability & open honest communication?
