This framework enables leaders, teams and their organizations to shift from problems to purpose. It guides the reader to articulate WHERE they are going and WHY ('Life Purpose', 'Team Purpose', 'Legacy' and 'Masterpiece'), WHAT they need to get there (Value Proposition, and Business Model) and HOW ('Accelerator Profile', 'Team Charter', and '100-Day Plan'). This is a transformational toolkit for the leader who wants to make a difference in their world.
The Legacy Diamond integrates all these tools in one simple model. What makes it unique is that it combines the Inward Creation Journey to develop the mind-set required to create a Masterpiece, the Outward Collaboration Journey to create the balance required to bring it to life, and the Upward Expansion Journey required to maximize its impact.
Most frameworks cover one of these journeys, possibly two, but never three. It explains how creative ideas emerge by looking at the physiology, neurology, psychology, and metaphysics of creativity AND how to realize these ideas by looking at true mastery in art, science, sport and business. And this isn't just a nice theory. These tools have been roadtested in Silicon Valley and Health Valley, in technology organizations and health organizations, in countries as far afield as Russia and the United States , with hard-nosed commercial leaders and social entrepreneurs, with CEOs and PAs, with groundbreaking leaders in business and science. And they work.
The Legacy Diamond is based on Alex' experience with HP, Samsung, Nestlé, Unilever, P&G, The International Committee of The Red Cross, WHO, The United Nations, The Global Fund Against AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis, Gavi - the Vaccine Alliance, five different medical associations and many, many more... It has the potential to help millions. But Alex can't do that alone. He is looking for more leaders who want to test it and provide feedback so together, we can improve the second edition for others.
