Signtronix – Few Leaders Pass It On

Succession is one of the key responsibilities of leadership.  Yet of all the characteristics of leadership, legacy is one that the fewest leaders seem to learn.  Achievement comes to someone when he is able to do great things for himself.  Success comes when he empowers followers to do great things with him.  Significance comes when he develops leaders to do great things for him.  But a legacy is created only when a person puts his organization into the position to do great things without him!

 

Success is not measured by what you’re leaving to, but by what you are leaving behind.  When all is said and done, your ability as a leader will not be judged by what you achieved personally or even by what your team accomplished during your tenure. You will be judged by how well your people and your organization did after you were gone.  Your lasting value will be measured by succession!

 

“In the end, all business operations can be reduced to three words: people, product and profits.  Unless you’ve got a good team, you can’t do much with the other two.”  ~Lee Iacocca
