Video: Tom Osborne on the Legacy of Leadership ~ https://vimeo.com/874820860
So often, we are told that legacy is measured in terms of material success—winning, acclaim, trophies, wealth, or personal happiness and satisfaction. In “The Legacy of Leadership,” however, Coach Tom Osborne discusses how leading with the end in mind is the only way to leave a legacy that truly matters.
Through personal stories and teachings, Coach Osborne shares the foundational actions (accountability, priorities, and strategy) and foundational values (values and vision, love, integrity, humility, patience, self-control, and loyalty) that lead to impactful outflow (serving, mentoring, and empowerment) and impactful outcomes (confidence, unity, perseverance, excellence, transformation, and success). “The Legacy of Leadership” also includes topical stories from some of the people that know Coach Osborne best (Trev Alberts, Turner Gill, Frank Solich, Ron Brown and Jim Pillen, e.g.) to highlight how he has lived these principles out as a coach, congressman, athletic director, mentor, family man, and follower of Christ.
Most importantly, this book will help you better understand that the true legacy of leadership is not about you. It’s about honoring God through your leadership and serving those that you lead.
