The beguiling concept of servant leadership has confused people ever since Robert K. Greenleaf first coined the term in his influential 1970 essay, “The Servant as Leader.” Many people mistakenly think that servant leaders are subservient cream puffs. Not true: Servant leaders have to be tough-minded people with impressive discipline, personal strength and enough backbone to decide to put others first. In their enlightening book, editors Ken Blanchard and Renee Broadwell showcase insightful and inspirational essays on servant leadership, often with a strong Christian perspective. If you find spiritual approaches to management issues helpful and interesting – and especially if you share the authors’ faith – you’ll find this leadership manual uplifting and useful.
