Sharing Your Legacy

How Your Values Can Live On

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Have you been a successful leader and are wondering how to go about the daunting task of sharing your nonmaterial and nonfinancial assets with loved ones? Leaders and executives across the board often wrestle with questions of how to leave a legacy. This weekend you will gather with others pondering these same things and support each other in finding answers.

Guided by Bob Halperin, a senior consultant for the Authentic Leadership Institute,
you will explore what values, beliefs, personal history, and experiences you consider important to pass on to your children, grandchildren, and larger community by preparing an ethical will, or legacy letter. As you reflect on how you want to live and lead in your life today, you give a gift to yourself as much as to anyone else.

Through a series of facilitated conversations, you will learn:

  • How to start the process of authentically expressing the values and life lessons you wish to leave to others
  • Methods for linking your personal legacy with your financial and philanthropic legacy
  • The impact this time of reflection will have on choices you make today given what you propose to say to future generations.

Join the centuries-old tradition of those who have been moved to write ethical wills to pass along invaluable beliefs and stories to their children and grandchildren.

Faculty Bio

Bob Halperin, MBA

Bob Halperin is a research affiliate at MIT‰’s Center for Collective Intelligence, where he previously served as executive director. He is also president of Alumni Forum Services, a company that brings Harvard alumni and other executives together for confidential discussions of important business and personal issues.

Bob received an ethical will from his grandfather, has written legacy letters to his children, and has led multiple workshops and retreats on the theme of moving from success to significance, asking how we go about the daunting task of sharing our non-material and non-financial ‰assets‰ with loved ones and how our thoughts about legacy inform the choices we make about how we live today.

Honored as an Eisenhower Fellow in 2002, Bob brings more than two decades of executive education and senior management experience to his work, including leadership roles at Young Presidents Organization (YPO), Harvard Business School, Babson College, and MIT Sloan School of Management.

Steve Seeche, JD

Steve Seeche is chairman of the board of Mediators Beyond Borders, an international organization that builds local skills for peace and promotes mediation worldwide.

After his 30-year career consulting with venture-backed, technology startups, and meditation training at Harvard Law School, Steve now divides his time between international peace building, nonprofit board service, mediation, and other forms of dispute resolution.

He has served on several boards, including the New England Association for Conflict Resolution, and he has had a long-term interest in dialogue, nonjudgmental conversation, and mindfulness.

In his consulting, nonprofit board service, and teaching, he continually asks: how can we turn from judgment to curiosity as we seek to connect with and learn from others? He draws on his expertise in facilitating conversations about life‰’s meaning, sharing our legacies, and communicating with and learning from the generations who will inherit from us and succeed us as leaders.
