9781400054732: The Servant Leader: How to Build a Creative Team, Develop Great Morale, and Improve Bottom-Line Performance

A Practical Guide to Using the Principles of Servant Leadership

Leadership is a calling. And servant leadership—the idea that managing with respect, honesty, love, and spirituality empowers employees—helps individuals answer that calling. Bestselling author and former Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry reveals the servant leader’s tools, a set of skills and ideals that will transform the way business is done. It helps leaders nurture the needs and goals of those who look to them for leadership. The result is a more productive, successful, and happier organization, and a more meaningful life for the leader.

Autry reveals how to remain true to the servant leadership model when handling day-to-day and long-term management situations, including how to:

·Provide guidance during conflict and crisis
·Assure your continued growth and progress as a leader
·Train managers in the principles of servant leadership
·Transform a company with morale problems into a great place to work

Practiced by one-third of the companies on Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, servant leadership is a thriving philosophy. Ultimately, Autry explores how it can be a valuable, refreshing, and rewarding approach to leading others in business life.

"The Servant Leader illuminates a clear path to personal, spiritual, and material actualization, which, in return, creates an infinite circle of prosperity."

"The Servant Leader is really the best field guide I've seen for helping managers transform themselves into true leaders."
-DOUG GREENE, CEO, New Hope Group
