Legacy

Defining Moments


"When a defining moment comes, you define the moment or the moment defines you." This quote is from the movie "Tin Cup," with Kevin Costner playing the main character, Roy McAvoy.

While watching the movie "Tin Cup" this weekend, for what must be the 1000th time, I heard the above referenced quote differently than all the other times. Where was I before? The movie was filled with micro moments when the main character, Roy McAvoy is confronted with what are portrayed as "defining moments.

A Leader's Greatest Contribution

The Coates Perspective for May 20, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
The Power of an Effective Role Model

I have noticed that people do not always do what you say but they see what you do. For example, this principle is painfully clear at home. It was coach John Wooden who remarked,
 
“Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating...too often fathers neglect it because they get so caught up in making a living they forget to make a life.” John Wooden
 
But this principle is just as true in the workplace.

Communicating A Lasting Legacy

The Coates Perspective for March 8, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
Is Your Life Communicating a Lasting Legacy?
 
Communication by a leader is more than using words. We also communicate with our lives. How we live is just as important as what we say.

Author Grenville Kleiser underscores this premise when he writes,“Your life is like a book. The title page is your name, the preface your introduction to the world. The pages are a daily record of your efforts, trials, pleasures, discouragements, and achievements.
