Book Review - Servant Leadership in Action

Servant Leadership in Action: How You Can Achieve Great Relationships and Results

About the Book
We've seen the negative impact of self-serving leaders in every sector of our society. Not infrequently, they end up bringing down their entire organization. But there is another way. Servant leaders lead by serving their people, not by exalting themselves. In this collection, edited by legendary business author and lifelong servant leader Ken Blanchard and his longtime editor Renee Broadwell, leading businesspeople, bestselling authors, and spiritual leaders offer tools for implementing this proven--but for some, still radical--leadership model.

The book is organized into six parts. Part One, Fundamentals of Servant Leadership, describes basic aspects of servant leadership. Part Two, Elements of Servant Leadership, highlights some of the different points of view of servant leaders. Part Three, Lessons in Servant Leadership, focuses on what people have learned on a personal level from observing servant leadership in action. Part Four, Exemplars of Servant Leadership, features people who have been identified as classic servant leaders. Part Five, Putting Servant Leadership to Work, offers firsthand accounts of people who have made servant leadership come alive in their organizations. Part Six, Servant Leadership Turnarounds, illustrates how servant leadership can dramatically impact both results and human satisfaction in organizations.

This is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging guide ever published for what is, in every sense, a better way to lead.

My Take on the Book
While servant leadership is something that I want to think that I am practicing, after reading this I find that there is much for me to learn that will help me to become an even more effective leader. This book is packed with so many great insights, tools and resources that will help you to make changes to your own style that will help you better connect and lead the people around you. I loved all of the examples of people who live their lives as servant leaders as it is through these examples that you can make changes that are practical and sustainable. I also enjoyed that the book compiles the writings of many leaders, so you are getting a bit of everything in this great book that will really help you in the end! If you want to be a servant leader and enjoy books that give you tools to implement right away, then this is the book for you!
