Who needs another book on leadership? After reading Dr. Parolini's manuscript, I concluded that I did. This personal, thoughtful and challenging book takes two well recognized leadership models, puts them in dialog, and synthesizes a more robust model. Using her research, consulting experience, and life story, Dr. Parolini challenges leaders to grow their character as a basis for growing their skills as a leader. This is not a book to skim. The reader will gain the most from interacting with the frequent questions and exercises that link the material with the leader's character and style. Illustrations from the Bible pointedly and powerfully bring home the principles of Transformational Servant Leadership. As you pick up this book be prepared to grow academically, spiritually, and personally. Jay Barnes President, Bethel University There are two kinds of people in the world - 'here I am' kind of people and 'there you are' kind of people. Transformational servant leaders are always other-centered leaders who help facilitate personal and corporate change with high impact. Jeanine Parolini' is a 'there you are' kind of leader whose interactive style will stretch your mind, enlarge your heart, and ignite your desire to better understand and practice Transformational Servant Leadership. I know this because she has consulted with me and our organization to define reality and clarify direction. Learn how to be the new kind of hero that is necessary in our world today through the Parolini Transformation and Servant Leadership Scale included in these pages.
