Hard Work of Building a Legacy

“Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.”

Adrienne Clarkson, former governor general of Canada

Outside our office in downtown Orlando, I see construction projects going on all around us … from the expansion of Interstate 4 to the additions at the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts to new projects such as Zoi House. We see the same type of expansion and growth throughout the region.

If you don’t visit these areas on a regular basis, it sometimes seems these things just pop up. We don’t see the day-to-day hard work that goes into the building. We also don’t see the work that has come before the actual project commences. By the time they break ground, many long hours have already been put into the planning, design, and preparation of the foundation.

In the companies we feature this month, you’ll learn how vision and long-term planning are helping Tavistock build entire communities. You’ll see how approaching an industry with a different perspective has brought success to Cresa, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. You’ll see how building relationships and exceeding expectations have helped Wieland Construction expand into new markets.

The construction and management processes they all use, paired with their values and principles, are the same for all of us in business. Growing a successful business takes planning, preparation, hard work and operating from a place that honors your values. It’s the understanding that each day, we are building something much bigger than ourselves.

Next month we’ll be recognizing eight leaders who are also building something much bigger than themselves in our Women’s Inspired Leaders issue. I hope you’ll join us as we celebrate them at our luncheon event, March 1 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando.
