Your leadership legacy

What’s your legacy?

During a recent visit to the RHS gardens at Wisley, a new plant caught my eye.

It was a beautiful Australian shrub that produces spider-like red and cream flowers. It’s official name is Grevillea johnsonii, in honour of Charles Greville and AS Johnson, respectively a founder of the RHS and a past Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney.

Think about your own legacy: would someone consider naming something in your honour as a way of marking your impact on a team, an organisation?  As a leader, how much do you think about the legacy you want to leave behind?
