Servant Leader

Gearing up

for the 2016 presidential election

is already discouraging.

In 1970

Robert Greenleaf

wrote

The Servant as Leader.

A servant-leader

focuses primarily

on the growth and well-being

of people and the communities

to which they

belong.

The servant-leader

shares power,

puts the needs

of others first

and helps people

develop and perform

as highly as possible.

Caring for persons,

the more able

and the less able

serving each other,

is the rock

upon which a good society

is built.

Could those running and staking out their reasons for running for president, read Robert Greenleaf’s The Servant as Leader and The Institution as Servant.?It is an important time to shift into real purpose and away for dialing for dollars as the culture of the 2016 race.
