Written by Kaat Peeters and Omar Mohout.
People want to change things, improve the world. Our mind cannot live without meaning. Just like the body asks for food. We all know that we have the leverage to make things happen. It’s important to know what to do, but it’s even more important to remember why you do what you do.
Leaving a legacy is about impact surviving the erosion of time. About scaling and accelerating positive impact. Be ready to get inspired about leaving your own legacy. How do you leave a legacy? What drives a legacy? How about your legacy statement? And how about growing your impact? Will you choose for scaling up, scaling deep, scaling out, or maybe even scaling down? Get carried away by the impact point of view and discover how you can grow the impact of your organisation too.
This book reveals strategies of a diversity of organisations, from NPO’s over associations, governmental and knowledge institutes to commercial organizations, who succeeded in growing their social impact. Because no matter in what kind of organisation you are spending your days, you too may leave a legacy that has improved our world socially or ecologically.
