From FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP . . . Robert K. Greenleaf from "The Servant as Leader" "The servant-leader is servant first. Becoming a servant-leader begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.... The best test is this: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?" Ken Blanchard from "The Heart of Leadership" "I truly believe that servant-leadership has never been more applicable to the world of leadership than it is today. Not only are people looking for a deeper purpose and meaning when they must meet the challenges of today's changing world; they are also looking for principles and philosophies that actually work. Servant-leadership works. Servant-leadership is about getting people to a higher level by leading people at a higher level." Stephen R. Covey from "Servant-Leadership and Community Leadership in the Twenty-First Century" "Anyone can be a servant-leader. Any one of us can take initiative ourself; it doesn't require that we be appointed a leader, but it does require that we operate from moral authority. The spirit of servant-leadership is the spirit of moral authority." Margaret Wheatley from "The Work of the Servant-Leader" "I believe that Greenleaf knew so much, was accessing so much of what I would call 'eternal wisdom' when he said the criterion of successful servant-leadership is that those that we serve are healthier and wiser and freer and more autonomous, and perhaps they even loved our leadership so much that they want to serve others also." Warren Bennis from "Become a Tomorrow Leader" "Too many organizations are overmanaged and underled because the people at the top are better at making policies, practices, and procedures than they are at creating a compelling, overarching vision. They are managers, not leaders." FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP CONTRIBUTORS Hamilton Beazley Julie Beggs Warren Bennis Ken Blanchard John C. Bogle Rubye Howard Braye John Burkhardt John Carver Stephen R.
