    Publisher's Description

    A Practical Guide to Using the Principles of Servant Leadership

    Leadership is a calling. And servant leadership—the idea that managing with respect, honesty, love, and spirituality empowers employees—helps individuals answer that calling. Bestselling author and former Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry reveals the servant leader’s tools, a set of skills and ideals that will transform the way business is done. It helps leaders nurture the needs and goals of those who look to them for leadership. The result is a more productive, successful, and happier organization, and a more meaningful life for the leader. Autry reveals how to remain true to the servant leadership model when handling day-to-day and long-term management situations, including how to:

    •Provide guidance during conflict and crisis

    •Assure your continued growth and progress as a leader

    •Train managers in the principles of servant leadership

    •Transform a company with morale problems into a great place to work

    Practiced by one-third of the companies on Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, servant leadership is a thriving philosophy. Ultimately, Autry explores how it can be a valuable, refreshing, and rewarding approach to leading others in business life.

      The church more than ever before require servant leaders that would not wait to be served rather are willing to look for opportunities to serve with a view to making their people better. These are leaders that chart the path of Jesus'model of being visionary, redemptive and not powerbase. If the Church must impact our generation, there's no contesting the fact that we must do leadership from the knee up. I come from Nigeria where leadership is struglling between the western mega church corporate church prosperity model is making many church leaders confuse on which one to follow: in the midst of poverty and the challenge of everyday demands. We must walk the path of attending to the growth and empowering our church members such they are able to do their work of service. Jesus served and gave His life as ransome because He came not to be served rather to serve and leave us an example to follow in His steps, in this he was able to reduce the risk of conflict and foster growth.
