Summary
  • On Becoming a Servant-Leader, a collection of previously unpublished work by Greenleaf, demonstrates his personal and professional philosophy, which postulates that true leaders are those who lead by serving others. Spanning a time frame of more than fifty years, this collection includes original essays focused on the key issues - power, ethics, management, organizations, and servanthood - that are reflective of the evolution of Greenleaf's remarkable career. The book also presents "Leadership and the Individual," a series of lectures that Greenleaf delivered at Dartmouth College. In addition, the book contains the complete manuscript of Greenleaf's previously unpublished book "The Ethic of Strength."
  • Today's reader will find On Becoming a Servant-Leader filled with practical suggestions and useful information, such as strategies for developing effective managers and leaders and a detailed explanation of an ethic that can serve as a model for cultivating integrity. In this book, Greenleaf cites dozens of cases that exemplify the use and misuse of power in the twentieth century and he lays out tools for exercising persuasive power. In addition to its practical applications, On Becoming a Servant-Leader paints an intimate portrait of a man who was one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. In his own words, Greenleaf explains how his experience of working with AT & T - which he called "an adventure in spirit"--Transformed his thinking about organizations. The book concludes with a personal conversation between Robert Greenleaf and Joseph DiStefano in which Greenleaf describes the compelling influences that prepared him to develop the servant theme
