Only one leadership move ensures a longer-lasting legacy than hero making does, and that is creating a hero-making culture. A hero-making culture empowers leaders to multiply their impact well beyond their sphere of influence and well beyond the life of any single leader. The very best hero makers do not just make heroes; they create a culture in which everyone around them implements the five essential practices of hero making. And these practices become so common that they are widely adopted over and over again without a second thought.
