What is an Icon?

What is an Icon?

by Michael Feeley February 14, 2024


A LEADER. A legend. An image or a symbol that stands for something and doesn’t necessarily mean for good.

Mickey Mouse – The Eiffel Tower – The Panama Canal – Tiffany – Nike – Ferrari – Empress Wu Zetian of ChinaAttila the Hun – Stalin – The Holocaust – Harriet Tubman – Audrey Hepburn – Paul Newman – JFK – Bayard Rustin.


– How do you show up in the world?

– What is your personal and professional message, brand, and story?

– How do you want to be seen and remembered?


We are each an icon and hopefully in some celebrated, respected, and prominent way – from children on playgrounds, to families and company employees and world leaders. You can be a bully or a benevolent, inspiring human being.


Thanks – Michael (he, him)
