Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Twenty-five years ago Robert Greenleaf published these prophetic essays on what he coined servant leadership, a practical philosophy that replaces traditional autocratic leadership with a holistic, ethical approach. This highly influential book has been embraced by cutting edge management everywhere. Yet in these days of Enron and what VISA CEO Dee Hock calls our "era of massive institutional failure," Greenleaf's seminal work must reach the mainstream now more than ever. Servant Leadership helps leaders find their true power and moral authority to lead. It helps those served become healthier, wiser, freer, and more autonomous. This book encourages collaboration, trust, listening, and empowerment. It offers long-lasting change, not a temporary fix and extends beyond business for leaders of all types of groups.


Servant Leadership is one of those rare books that will live far beyond the life of its creator.
—James A. Autry, author of Servant Leader and Love & Profit

This most welcomed new edition will influence a new generation to serve better.
—Godric Ernest Scott Bader, Life President, Scott Bader Commonwealth Ltd.

This book will create leadership that contains such virtues as growth, responsibility and love.
—Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor, Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California; author of Organizing Genius

This is both symbol and substance on the shelf of anyone blessed with the opportunity to lead.
—John Carver, author of Boards That Make a Difference
