“A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” –Greek Proverb
Creating a Legacy Mindset
What do you want to be known for? What will you leave behind? What legacy are you creating?
This can be a heavy question, but its answers drive our actions and fuel our purpose.
At Credera, we’re passionate about cultivating a legacy mindset in our people. A legacy mindset means that as you go throughout your life and career, you seek opportunities to make a difference that will continue long after you’re gone. It’s considering what you’ll be known for and looking to create a sustained impact and positive influence.
While this has always been an organic part of Credera’s culture, it became more formalized during a partner retreat in 2019. Credera’s Global CEO and President Justin Bell asked the partner team to consider “What do you want to be true of Credera when you leave the firm?” Or more simply, “What is your legacy?” Each partner spent time considering the question and submitted statements they wanted to be true of their impact.
Hear From Our Leaders About Legacy
Three consistent themes emerged. Credera leaders want to create a legacy among our clients, our people, and our communities.
In our recent video series, we sat down with several Credera partners and asked them to open up about why leading with a legacy mindset is important and about the legacies they’re hoping to create.
Why Legacy Matters
At Credera, we’ve found that living with a legacy mindset fuels a culture of growth and connectedness, empowers servant leadership, and gives meaning to what we do every day.
While the work we do is important, and solving our client’s toughest challenges is exciting to us, Justin Bell said it best: “If the extent of what you do every day is get up and come to work to try and make money, it can be unmotivating. It is critical we have a purpose that’s higher than that, more important than that, and longer-lasting than that.”
