9781594672279: Servant First!

Entering the new millennium, men and women across the globe are crying out for a new type of leadership. The old command and control model is dead and the search for a new approach has begun.

In Servant First! Leadership for the New Millennium, John Sullivan develops a practical leadership model based on a careful study of the teaching and practice of Jesus of Nazareth.

This upside down leadership style puts the needs of followers above the needs of the leader; promotes teamwork, individual dignity and worth; and results in a synergy of purpose unachievable with the old leadership models. Its application in today's organizations creates an environment in which people freely choose to create, innovate and strive for excellence.

The book begins with a review of traditional leadership theories and contrasts them with servant leadership. Drawing on the work of W. Edwards Deming, Robert Greenleaf, and others, Sullivan shows how each of these modern leadership approaches is molded by the servant-first style of Jesus. The reader is left with a model for leading 21st century organizations that will unleash the creativity of people working together to achieve common objectives.
