Overview

Servant Leadership is getting the most out of you and your team. Concisely, it can summed up with the leader asking a staff person, "How can I help you or hinder you less?" Most writings about Servant Leadership deal with a leader's character. This book gives practical examples and encouragement to implement some of the principles. Sometimes taking examples from the business headlines, there are 40 essays that could be read and acted upon each day for eight weeks. In that time, you will be a different kind of leader. Your organization will be changed also into a group that will be poised to do great things.

The second edition expands on servant leadership by considering being a courageous follower. Since we all work for someone else, there's an additional article about dealing with a toxic leader as you try to be a servant leader.

If you want to create a place where people want to be at work, read this book.

In addition, each essay has a scriptural extra. The author has tapped into a biblical principle, example or commentary on the character traits.

About the Author

With over 30 years of management experience, Scott Anthony Ward has been practicing servant leadership before he knew it had a name. Others have been encouraged and challenged by his writing and speaking. He has had employees who claim they'd rather be at work than at home. No one in his companies has dreaded going to work. To give a talk on back/spinal care, one occupational therapist told him that she volunteered because she wanted to see what kind of "magic was happening here." Her patients from his company would say, "Hurry up! I want to get back to work." None of her patients from other companies talk that way.
