    One thought on “The Power of Servant Leadership”

    1. Introductory Summary:The editor of this book is Larry C. Spears who at the time of this writing is the CEO of the Greenleaf Center for Servant-Leadership since 1990. The foundation for this book is grounded in the person of Robert K. Greenleaf who is the father of Servant Leadership Theory. Back in 1970, he wrote a small essay called “The Servant As Leader”, which introduced the term “servant-leadership.” That and other writings have influenced an entire generation of management experts [...]

    2. The title is a sufficient caption for anyone who is charged with the responsibility of leading. According to a famous statement of the Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him), "Each one of you is a shepherd for his flock…" continuing to explain in his own wisely succinct manner that leadership comes in varying degrees and forms. Greenleaf's message is that society is better because of the service its members render to one another. That ethic of service must be emulated in its leaders. Truthfully [...]

    3. Excellent read for anyone in a leadership position, or aspiring to such a position. In much of the book he speaks to young people. It’s kind of a popular thing right now to have high school classes on leadership; this would be a great resource for such a class.I did kind of get bogged down in the chapter on seminaries, although even there he spoke about critical thinking which is important for any individual or organization. I found the chapter on aging rather interesting. Overall this was wel [...]

    4. This book challenged my thinking in regard to the role of the seminary and theological education within the church world. I appreciate much of what it says. I have been exposed to the idea of servant leadership in the past. However, I was rather surprised to understand the implicit connection that the author appears to make between servant leadership and his own pacifistic views. What struck me is that only a pacifist can hold to the theory of servant leadership.

    5. I've not actually read this whole book. I got a little board with the later parts of the book and that's why I only gave it 4 stars. Most of that was implementation specifics that I didn't feel like applied to me.The front of this book is fantastic though. I have a cheat sheet of my favorite quotes that I re-read pretty regularly. It's very motivating stuff and helps me get my head in the right place.Maybe I'll re-read the entire book and see if more of it applies to me than I thought the first [...]

    6. This collection of essays has been my introduction to Robert Greenleaf. The material is some of the most important leadership information I have come across since my Marine Corps days. There are a total of 8 essays which range from the origins of the concept of Servant Leadership to Mr. Greenleaf's ideas on how to create Servant Leaders. Captured in the pages of this book is the pith of a leadership philosophy which everyone should be exposed to. The essay entitled Education and Maturity origina [...]

    7. The idea of thinking of yourself (as a leader, either by title or activity) as primarily a servant is resonates very strongly for me, and the book lays out this idea very well. The only issue is that it takes WAY too many pages that are used not to introduce new aspects of this philosophy, but just to reiterate it in different forms. Greenleaf could easily have cut out 100 pages, and still made his point. But it's a great theory, and one that I try to embody.

    8. Just finishing up a class in Servant-Leadership at Gonzaga University abd this was one of the books in our class. My only disappointment is that I did not know about this book prior to taking this class: excellent!

    9. I really like Robert Greenleaf. He writes quite a bit about the church and seminaries, but from an outsider perspective. The last essay about what it means to prepare for old age is really good and when do you get to read an article by an 83 year old person?

    10. I enjoyed this book but it is mostly written in the very straight-forward style of the 60's, so it comes across as pretty dry. However, there is some good stuff in here for the leader who aspires to succeed by taking care of his/her people.

    11. I appreciate the learnings and stories, but sometimes I got lost in the vast amount of text. There were a few chapters that I decided to skip as I was running out of patience. I'll definetly come back to it, as right now is not 100% relevant.

    12. While it can be a tough read at times this classic on servant leadership this book is the foundation for future authors exploring servant leadership.
