Servant leadership has been studied for decades, if not longer. Information and research on servant leadership abounds, while little empirical data is found on how to servant lead. Definitions of this leadership style seem to help but so many misconceptions around servant leadership cause some to dismiss it while others apply it inappropriately.
Leadership development in general focuses heavily on strategies and tactics with less time on mindset and intention. This is why true leadership change is rare. Behavior in leadership and in life, comes from core beliefs and mindsets, many of which we are unaware of. So, while a new tactic can be learned, if the core mindset behind the old behavior is not addressed, that old behavior will return.
To truly embody servant leadership, you must embrace the core mindsets of servant leadership.
This book honors the foundational research laid by Greenleaf, Russel and Stone, Blanchard, and other thought leaders, and explores the core ideas necessary to embody servant leadership. Servant Leader Mindset will help you adopt the mindsets that create great organizations and teams, that solve community problems and heal broken systems-all without sacrificing self. If embraced, the concepts in this book will create more fulfillment at work and life and create a greater connection to that ‘something bigger’ you’ve always wanted.
