The Legacy Leadership® Model

Using a model with proven success for both the best of times and the worst of times, Legacy Leadership® embodies a compelling and comprehensive set of competencies and skills. Legacy Leaders lead the way for others to follow to the edge of our current story and beyond. We hear stories every day about the lack of strong leadership talent in our workplaces and our world.

Legacy Leadership®, developed by Dr. Lee Smith and Dr. Jeannine Sandstrom, is a comprehensive model for developing talented leaders. It includes competencies and practices with immediate applicability to almost every challenge and possibility leaders face today. The ‘5 Best Practices™ embrace both vision and accountability for results, as well as methods for creating an environment for group success, strong and dependable relationships, and maximizing the talents of diverse perspectives and strengths. Most major leadership models find a fit in this balanced framework. Many organizations have a set of competencies with which to measure their leader performance; others do not. In either case, Legacy Leadership® provides a sound structure for such competencies to reside.

With the structural map of the 5 Best Practices™, you will have a full and complete picture of the destination your leader development program will go, for you personally and for those you lead. The basic focus of Legacy Leadership® is on OTHERS, rather than on the leader, in order to develop leaders who then develop other leaders. The outcome is fully developed leaders, both current and emerging, and greatly enhanced leadership potential.

Legacy, in this model is not about building and leaving ‘things’. It is about building people. It is about investing in individual leaders who can then share their learnings with others. Legacy is realized in this perpetuating cycle of leadership development by enabling your personal and community plan to come alive and thrive. Your authentic and Essential Selves are offered to others in order to develop their best Selves and so on, leaving a multi-generational imprint – a living legacy.

Leadership Competencies and Critical Success Skills are embedded in:

The 5 Best Practices™ of Legacy Leadership®

When you consider the legacy you are currently creating, consider measuring yourself against these 5 Best Practices™

Legacy Leaders® are Holders of Vision and Values

They are clear on their personal vision and values and measure all ideas, decisions, commitments and actions against the vision and values template. Items not in alignment with the template are discarded and/or redesigned. As “Holders” of the vision and values they provide consistent focus and direction for themselves and their teams as well as their organizations. This best practice has the vision and values serve as the “bull’s eye” for each target.

Legacy Leaders® are Creators of Collaborative Innovation

They establish environments that facilitate discovery of possibilities beyond conventional wisdom that taps the unique genius/gifts of all involved. The Leader’s job is to accept, honour and respect each person’s contributions/ideas, including options different than their own. Those possibilities result in leading-edge, competitive positioning based on the vision and values template. This best practice fosters a “Star Wars” culture where Legacy Leaders™ serve as Jedi Masters.  

Legacy Leaders® are Influencers of Inspirational Leadership

These are leaders who know themselves well and model constant change and growth. In so doing, they are trailblazers for others to follow. They are highly invested in having others outpace them to lead the way for yet another generation. This best practice is like being the first one to run the four-minute mile: Once done, the standard is raised and others surpass them.

Legacy Leaders® are Advocators of Differences

They recognize and draw together individuals who contribute diverse perspectives for a greater good. Legacy Leaders® practice inclusion. They require that all people bring their whole selves to work. This leader models the endorsement of diverse points of view and leverages such differences into a value added for all. This business practice means “no rubber stamps need apply.”

Legacy Leaders® are Calibrators of Accountabilities

They can be counted on unconditionally and hold others to the same standard. Everyone is held accountable, no exceptions. Legacy Leaders® measure all actions against the strategic commitments to stakeholders. This best practice is about anchoring the culture of the “buck stops here.”

Given that leadership is complex, this model simplifies and distinguishes these five core competency platforms and associated critical success skills for successful leadership. These platforms represent a complete set of observable and measurable behaviours. These behaviours, when used in total, are leverage points for success, individually and collectively. These practices of leadership are essential for every leader, regardless of their industry or level within an organization or community.

There are many leaders in our world, but only those who desire to grow their competencies will be most successful, influential and effective leaders: and more importantly, leaders whom people desire to follow – Legacy Leaders®.
