Overview

Leaders everywhere, in arenas big and small, struggle with the desire and, frankly, the need to make sure their vision for the organization they have created or grown continues regardless of circumstances. And the question "what will be my legacy?" is a question all people ask themselves. Myles Munroe has observed that the tendency among leaders is to deal with this question as serious circumstances or retirement loom. Further, it is his belief that this is one of the most important decisions a leader will ever make.

This book is a wakeup call. Myles Munroe wants all leaders to focus on building the right team for the future and to make it a top priority because the process is not a quick one. Properly mentoring the right people to ensure the continuation of an organization is actually a process that must be woven into that organization over a span of years or even decades.

Chapter topics discussed include

  • The Chaos of Transition
  • The Leadership Dilemma
  • Living Beyond Your Generation
  • The Principles of Mentoring
PASSING IT ON shows how to use the concept of mentoring within an organization to value the distinct talents and abilities of the individuals. Mentoring is the pathway to developing leaders from within; leaders who are in line with the goals of the organization; leaders who are most likely to adopt and carry a vision forward.

    Cassio the pink angel to Cassy

    Gosh darnit Cassy! "An angel with long blonde hair in a braid that reaches the ground flies in. Her pink blouse and skirt sequined and shining. Her 16 foot wings fold back. A silver halo around her head like a crown." You weren't supposed to leave until you learned to fly! And I can't carry you all the way there. But someone please help her. I'm not allowed to help her. (Its against the laws of the angels. The law states that when you are over the age of five are forbidden to have contact with their mothers.)

    a little girl

    "a little girl about 6 years old stumbles in. She bleeds from scraped knees and elbows, a cut on her head bleeding badly. Her unusually long white hair stained red in some areas. Her black and white robes tattered. A sword hangs in its sheathe at her side. Her startling blue eyes pleading as she looks up." Help me please. My name is Cassy. "little white wings burst from her back" I'm a fallen angel.
