Building a legacy is not reserved for the last stages of your career. It is meant to bring life to your work no matter what your age or experience. Whether you intend to or not, you leave an imprint on an organization and the people you work with. People will remember you: how you made them feel, positive change you initiated or the role you took in helping and developing others. Building a living legacy is being intentional every day about choosing the behaviors that will make the most difference to you, to the people you work with and the organization you work for.
Pat Brinton, Leaderview
