“Servant leadership” means doing everything you can to improve the lives of those around you. Many successful organizations practice servant leadership, thanks to visionary CEOs who recognize and celebrate the value of their employees. In this mix of an autobiography and an executive handbook, Matt Tenney will convince you that servant leadership is the only sensible option for contemporary leaders seeking to maximize their organization’s potential. The author explains why executives and managers who want to improve the bottom line should set aside their egos and focus on empowering their people. Tenney offers unique insight, advice and inspiration – hard won from his experience in prison, a monastery and the boardroom – as he builds a watertight case for the servant-leadership management philosophy. getAbstract strongly recommends his ideas and methods to leaders at every level and those aspiring to lead.
