WHAT THE Q LEAVES BEHIND THROUGH THE EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF HIS MISSION DURING HIS LIFE
Legacy is the Fourth Quadrant of the Q.
• The First Quadrant, The DRP, is about the Q’s relationships with himself, his Concentrica and his Creator
• The Second Quadrant, IMPACT, is about the strong effect the Q has through forcible contact
• The Third Quadrant, Group Leadership, is about the Q’s Influence upon the Groups in which he is a Member
• The Fourth Quadrant, Legacy , is about what the Q leaves behind—it is the sum total his IMPACT and Group Leadership
A Leader is a man who has Influence while he is in close Proximity. A good Leader is a man who continues to Influence from a distance. A Virtuous Leader’s Influence survives his death through his Legacy.
Legacy is the hallmark of the Virtuous Leader.
To leave a Legacy a man must first nurture his relationships through the DRP, then have IMPACT and ultimately provide Leadership within his Groups. That is why Legacy is the fourth Quadrant—it will not happen without the first three.
To leave a Legacy, a man must build something that outlasts him
IMPACT alone will not guarantee Legacy. For that, the Q must do something more if he wants his Influence to outlast his days on earth. He must be a builder of Effective Organizations and Dynamic Teams.
An Effective Organization realizes its Articulated Purpose. A Dynamic Team accomplishes its Mission and serves the Community or Organization of which it is part.
The Q’s Legacy is not based on what he does, but what is done by his followers through the Groups he Leads.
