Description

Product Description

The Revolution Has Only Just Begun Twenty-five years ago Robert Greenleaf published these prophetic essays on what he coined servant leadership, a practical philosophy that replaces traditional autocratic leadership with a holistic, ethical approach. This highly influential book has been embraced by cutting edge management everywhere. Yet in these days of Enron and what VISA CEO Dee Hock calls our "era of massive institutional failure," Greenleaf''s seminal work must reach the mainstream now more than ever. Servant Leadership― · helps leaders find their true power and moral authority to lead. · helps those served become healthier, wiser, freer, and more autonomous. · encourages collaboration, trust, listening, and empowerment. · offers long-lasting change, not a temporary fix. · extends beyond business for leaders of all types of groups. †

The concept is very nice and if you are a pious Christian, this book will speak to you. As a leader who serves and respects those people that he leads, you are much more likely to get good results. I think this book goes way too deeply into life of Jesus and how we should be more like him. The book also goes into how to build institutions, set up trustees and why, how unions should interact with organization and so on. There is an enormous amount of rambling that is not relevant to the subject and the book could have been completed in about 20% of what was written. Lots of repetition

If only we had more servant minded leaders we would not have to learn about the problems of toxic leadership. This is a must read for parents or anyone that has people to lead with is everyone, lead self before you lead others.

Robert Greenleaf presents a compelling argument for servant leadership. In fact, when I look at when it is written, it has more application to present day than it did at the time it was written. The difficulty I had is that what was said in 360 pages could have been said in 150 pages. Concepts are repeated over and over again, and the detail is often not helpful. Overall, I felt it introduced great principles, but within the framework of excessive unimportant detail.

Servant-Leadership is rapidly becoming a popularized term and a popular concept to bandy about in many circles.

This is the book that started that trend.

Published originally in 1977, it contains articles and concepts that found their germination in the turbulant decade of the 1960''s. While you might imagine from the term "Servant-Leader" that the ideology of this book stems from religious conviction and it certainly does include that, you may be surprised to read in the first chapter of the book that it finds its inspiration in literature. Specifically, the Servant-Leader who captured Greenleaf''s imagination and catalyzed the writing of this book was the fictional character Leo in Herman Hesse''s "Journey to the East."

More surprises remain in store throughout this book that challenges concepts seemingly ingrained in human nature and counter-intuitively argues for several revolutionary premises, not simply on the basis of morality, but rather effectiveness and societal need.

In particular, Greenleaf argues that the advent of big business, large institutions, and corporate growth requires a paradigm shift in the view of leadership. Contrary to the anti-authoritarianism so ingrained in the 60''s, Greenleaf argues that large organizations hold tremendous promise to accomplish correspondingly large results. What is needed are leaders who will embrace the organizations and see them almost as separate entities, living organisms as it were, love them, care for them and serve the population within and without through them.

The qualities that Greenleaf profers as indicative of such growth and service are:

1. Do those served grow as persons?

2. Do they, while being served become healthier wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?

3. What is the effect on the least privileged in society?

4. Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived? (Greenleaf 1977/2002 p.27)

In practical terms Greenleaf argues strongly for such Servant-Leaders to rise up and shake off the traditional trappings of leadership within archaic and dusty organizations and equally archaic leadership models, where the emphasis has been upon elevating managers to de facto leaders of these institutions and instead, elevating Trustee''s and Board Chairpersons to reject passivity, reject the role of a rubber stamp and exert leadership that embraces values, takes risks and empowers people.

It is a clarion call to activist leadership that feels very much a derivitive of the 60''s altruism, yet rejects the across the board discarding of all institutions as irretrievably corrupt and inherently in need of dismantling.

The influence of this concept and the leadership institutions that are adopting the model in their training and operations is remarkably going beyond its author who passed away in 1990.

This book should be a welcome addition to the leadership library of every student and participant in the leadership melieu. Whether you accept and adopt the premises contained, there is wisdom and insight for all who wish to read. Answers in some context are given, but more importantly, tools are provided with which to frame the question for those moving forward.

I highly recommend this book as an indispensible tool for understanding the leadership issues and needs of this generation.

Don''t plan to plow through this. It requires absorbing
Reviewed in the United States on December 30, 2018
I have read only about a third of this because I want to absorb it. I read only a little every day and summarize what I have read to be sure I understand it. It isn''t hard to understand just very full of information and very inspirational.

Challenging
Reviewed in the United States on February 20, 2019
This book is so deep, it is hard to follow at times. I have been committed to being a servant leader and wanted to know about it''s origins. I think it has evolved to something more workable and understandable than the deep theory this book presents.
