In 1970, retired AT&T executive Robert K. Greenleaf coined the term'servant-leadership' to describe a kind of leadership that he felt was largely missing from organisations. It was Greenleaf's belief that leadership ought to be based upon serving the needs of others, and of helping those who are served to become `healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants.' Over the next twenty years, Greenleaf wrote a series of highly influential books and essays which have helped to lead the way for the emerging model in leadership and management. The Power of Servant Leadership is a collection of Greenleaf's finest and most mature essays on servant-leadership, designed to stimulate and inspire many people in their practice of a more caring, serving kind of leadership.
