The dictionary defines legacy as a gift of personal property by will. The origin comes from the Latin verb, Legare “to appoint by a last will”, or to “send as an ambassador”.
COVID has shined the light on the uncertainty of life and what our splash is in this world. As we reflect on the year passed by, our impact, and the brevity of life, we have a unique opportunity to discuss and become intentional about our legacy.
What constitutes a legacy?
Do all people intend to leave a legacy?
What differentiates legacy from impact?
Legacy has elements of time, intention and action.
Some legacies began to show up while we haven’t left.
Some legacies are like fire, they catch other’s interest, and become bigger than one person.
Some legacies survive beyond generations.
Sometimes it’s difficult to find one’s legacy.
In this highly engaging and interactive virtual session, you will learn...
* Have the space to think and possibly reflect about one's legacy
* Opportunity to share, discuss and explore it's meaning for oneself
* Explore role of intention in the final outcome
