Foreword: 'Legacy of Leadership'

Even if I had 'misspelled' that first word, it would still be right; because this latest book by Bob ' Idea Man' Hooey indeed moves us forward as leaders. Everyone wants to leave a legacy and everyone reading this book wants to become a better leader. Wanting and doing are two very different things. Wanting – the innate desire to acquire something or to be someone – is a concept we all know only too well. “I want to have better job; I want to succeed in my graduate studies; I want to lead more effectively”. We can Want all we Want, but actually Doingah, therein lies the rub! Transforming the want into a do-able action plan can be intimidating, challenging, postponed, or simply relegated to the 'too difficult' list.

Enter the ‘Idea Man’. Even though he is still very much with us (thankfully!), Bob has gifted all of us in his very readable ‘Legacy of Leadership’ with a wonderfully do-able action plan. The focus and relevance of Bob’s ideas are nicely summed up in his preview statements: taking your leadership to the next level and ensuring your leadership makes a difference. This book is not about going from zero to sixty in ten seconds, it’s about incremental change; it’s about striving to be just a little bit better tomorrow than today; it’s about moving forward as a leader over time. Bob challenges us to ensure our leadership makes a difference. Our leadership must make a positive difference in the lives of the men and women whom we lead. Otherwise, we have no business calling ourselves leaders.

Read this book! But don’t just read it, don’t just want to become a better leader. The ‘Idea Man’ offers you ideas and insights and pragmatic guidance which will lead you to your success as a leader. Now all you have to do is just do it!
