About this book


Guided by and complimenting the writings of Robert K. Greenleaf, this book aims to deepen, expand and extend the philosophy of servant-leadership. Proposing a grounding framework for the studies of leadership, training and development, the author suggests that servant-leadership is primarily based on the structures of human development. Emphasizing the notion of a developing servant-consciousness and explaining the composition of a servant-leader disposition, this book analyzes the way that leadership has evolved. The characteristics of a servant-leader are categorized into five primary capacities, each with a focus on holistic listening and path-finding foresight. Servant-leaders in Training is essential reading for scholars of organizational leadership and management, and those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of servant-leader philosophy more generally.
