When I was about to leave a previous company, I had a discussion with a colleague about what legacy I would leave behind. To be honest though, the conversation really centered on… did I leave any legacy at all?

That question was answered in a conversation I had a couple of months after I left with one of the mentors I respected.

Mentor: You have left a legacy… three to be exact.

Me: Nah, I was just lucky.

Mentor: Lucky is once!

He was probably giving me more credit than I was due, exaggerating as he often did, or just being nice. Still, it felt good because as a leader, this is exactly the kind of legacy I want to leave. More than processes and products, it is the thought that I somehow helped somebody towards achieving their potential.

This is truly one of the joys of coaching.
