The Executive Leader Coaches at CoachWorks® International, Inc. have always been leaders. They assisted in establishing the standards and ethics for the coaching profession, as well as providing many of the materials currently used today to prepare and guide other coaches. Today, they are known for more than building the structure of executive coaching—they are known for building Legacy Leaders®.
The term "Legacy Leader®" originated with the comprehensive leadership model developed by CoachWorks® to help build these not only memorable and lasting leaders, but leaders who build other leaders. Legacy Leadership® is based on The 5 Best Practices that make good leaders great leaders—Legacy Leaders®. It is not a leadership style, trend, or a list of things to do. It is an expression of the foundational framework that guides the behaviors and attitudes of a great leader. It is the wisdom of the ages structured and packaged for the new economy. Its truths and Best Practices are timeless, proven keys to sustained significance—and form the foundation for real-time legacy in today's business environment.
No gimmicks. This is the real thing. Legacy Leadership® is a complete system—a philosophy, a process and a model. Legacy Leadership® is not a leadership style—it is a LIFE-style.
Legacy Leadership® was developed in response to the changing global marketplace, the need to fully engage the talents of everyone in the organization, and the need to foster innovation and the development of individuals, teams and whole corporations. This leadership approach is not about leaving a legacy, but rather living a legacy. This legacy in leadership actively grows the leaders of tomorrow, and insures continued corporate success. Through extensive work and collaboration with business executives and leader coaches in both domestic and international corporate environments, CoachWorks has distinguished the unique competencies and practices of consistently successful leaders.
This vital, highly adaptable and proven model is based on over 40 years of the combined experiences of Drs. Lee Smith and Jeannine Sandstrom in individual, corporate and organizational leadership development. CoachWorks® International consistently brings innovative programs and materials to the leadership development industry. Legacy Leadership®, however, is more than a program. Drs. Smith and Sandstrom have refined reliable time-honored principles into an intentional, powerful system for success—today and tomorrow.
