The Scottish Parliament Mace
The words engraved on it are “wisdom, justice, compassion and integrity”.
These are a reference to Scottish values and surely also to everything the Queen was, and stood for. Her leadership was exemplary.

What is the legacy we chose to leave?
These questions are central to our book Leadership Through Covid-19 and Beyond. How to create an integrated 21st century organisation.
Because the leadership we demonstrate matters far more than we may believe and has influence now and for future generations.
