Publisher Comments

The writer, consultant, and lecturer Robert K. Greenleaf is known as the grandfather of the modern empowerment movement in business leadership. Among his many accomplishments, Greenleaf founded the Center for Applied Ethics, now known as the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant-Leadership, and is renowned for his influential writings on the "servant-as-leader" theme. Jossey-Bass Publishers is proud to announce the publication of On Becoming a Servant-Leader. This collection of previously unpublished work by Greenleaf demonstrates his personal and professional philosophy which postulates that "true leaders are those who lead by serving others."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. This 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 In addition, the book contains the complete manuscript of Greenleaf's previously unpublished book "The Ethic of Strength."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 the 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 b

(Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Adminstration, University of Southern California, and author of On Becoming a Leader and Why Leader's Can't Lead)

"Bob Greenleaf was a prophet before his time. His insightful thinking on servant-leadership is more relevant today than ever before. Reading these wonderful essays will uplift your heart and increase your effectiveness." (Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager)
