Codi’s career began in Canada in the death care sector, with him having spent 20 years as a funeral director and embalmer. He worked his way up in corporate funeral service, serving 25,000 families every year.
Having been surrounded by death on a daily basis, Codi learned a lot about life and legacy and is now a speaker, consultant and author sharing the lessons he learned in that career.
His work now helps us to understand and redesign what legacy means and how we can benefit from its principles, which are taught in his book, released in February of 2020 – Everyday Legacy: Lessons for Living with Purpose, Right Now.
In this ‘Expert Interview’ – Codi shared with Phil and the Inner Circle members how to create legacy and how these tactics can be applied to improving patient experience.
“Leadership is not just the leadership of others. It’s also the leadership of ourselves. How are we showing up in a powerfully impactful way in our work?”
“It’s just about carving out any amount of time and trying to be forgiving with yourself in trying to execute this balance between reality and really knowing that in order to serve others we have to be of service to ourselves.”
“Storytelling is engrained into who we are and people identify with stories.”
“If we can’t figure out a way to get on to our business again and out of it, the market will start to manage us as opposed to us managing the market.”
“We have to know who we are as service providers.”
