What People are Saying About This
Servant Leadership is a timeless, classic book not only because there was no conflict between the man, Robert Greenleaf, his beliefs, his deeds and what he wrote about them, but because we know he was right, even when we fail to do it. (Founder and CEO Emeritus, VISA International )
Robert Greenleaf conceived the idea of servant leadership during a time of chaos in the United States--the late 60's. But by exploring his idea in the multiple essays gathered in this book, he left a legacy by which people in very different times can continue to be inspired and motivated. The power of his idea and his evolving understanding and expression of it is forever available to us through this book. (President, Alverno College)
During the last quarter of a century, Robert Greenleaf and his writings have been used to instruct, encourage and motivate leaders to serve as they lead. We have all benefited from his work and have been reminded that no leader is greater than the people he or she leads, and even the humblest of tasks, just as Jesus taught his disciples over 2000 years ago, is worthy for a leader to do. (Chairman, Servicemaster, author ofThe Soul of the Firm)
I am convinced, as a governance theorist and practitioner, that responsible board behavior is impossible in the absence of the servant leadership Robert Greenleaf helped us all to understand. This Silver Anniversary edition of Servant Leadership is both symbol and substance on the shelf of anyone blessed with the opportunity to lead. (author of Boards That Make a Difference)
