By Marta brooks, Julie Stark and Sarah Caverhill.Whatever your position, if you influence change in the lives of those around you, you are engaged in an act of leadership. And if you are a leader in any sense, you are creating a legacy as you live your daily life. Your leadership legacy is the sum total of the difference you make in people’s lives, directly and indirectly, formally and informally. This book is a parable that challenges leaders to take responsibility for the lasting impact actions can have, for better or for worse. The authors spent five years speaking to a cross-section of men and women from all walks of life, asking them who had left an indelible impression in their lives and, more importantly, why.
