  • According to Blankenship, there are three essential concepts of legacy leadership. The first is look forward by looking back. This concept is about early on in your career having the ability to look at where you want your career to go and start establishing your priorities to get you there. I feel like this is an important concept if an individual knows that they want to be a supervisor in the future they need to know what they need to do to get to that spot, what trainings to complete and how to align themselves with the proper individuals who are going to coach and mentor them. The next is about not how you start but how you end. I feel that is an important concept personally and professionally, life is going to get in the way, which can derail the initial plan. It is all about determination and not giving up on a task, goal, or dream. I think about my desire to obtain my master’s degree; my personal and professional life created some barriers for me, it took me eleven years to accomplish my goal but in the end, I did it. The final is teamwork; no matter what you do in life you can’t do it alone, you have to have a team behind you to accomplish the goal and mission. The mission can be more successful when it is a team effort (2017).

  • You want to leave behind something that no matter how many people come and go. They will always know of you. Your accomplishments, your stories and your goals you set for others to succeed.
