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

By Ken Blanchard (Editor), Kenneth H Blanchard (Not available), Renee Broadwell (Editor)
"The only way to create great relationships and results is through
servant leadership. It's all about putting other people first."
- from the foreword by John Maxwell

We've all 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 leadership.

Servant leaders lead by serving their people, not by exalting themselves. This collection features forty-four renowned servant leadership experts and practitioners--prominent business executives, bestselling authors, and respected spiritual leaders--who offer advice and tools for implementing this proven, but for some still radical, leadership model.

Edited by legendary business author and lifelong servant leader Ken Blanchard and his longtime editor Renee Broadwell, this is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging guide ever published for what is, in every sense, a better way to lead.

"I found Servant Leadership in Action to be an enjoyable collection of essays that kept me interested in the subject of servant leadership regardless of where I was in the book. Blanchard and Broadwell did a nice job setting up the book's structure and dividing the essays into six parts/sections, starting with describing the basic aspects of servant leadership and ending with showing the readers how servant leadership can dramatically impact both results and human satisfaction in organizations. The essays are interesting and varied enough that you can skip around, reading what interests you, and still learn about servant leadership. If you like reading about servant leadership and do not mind a sprinkle of religious stories, then I think you will really enjoy this book." -Steve Nguyen, Ph.D. Leadership + Talent Development Advisor, Workplace Psychology

"Renowned expert Ken Blanchard with Renee Broadwell have assembled the insights of dozens of successful leaders in their new book Servant Leadership In Action. I doubt you will find any book or course on leadership that delivers a more on-target message of the essential element critical to being a truly great leader. Get a copy. Read it. Be it." -- Miami Herald

"Servant Leadership In Action is a comprehensive and inspiring book presented as a servant leadership primer, action plan and how-to guide, then concludes with proof of effectiveness and inspiration to go forward. The wide-ranging yet related topics covered in Servant Leadership In Action is part of what makes the book so valuable. I am sure it will quickly become a must-have resource for leaders, both emerging and established." -- Being Fully Present

"Today brings the release of the new definitive book on servant leadership. A curated collection of incredibly insightful and motivational perspectives on servant leadership via essays by 44 servant leaders. Edited by Ken Blanchard and Renee Broadwell, Servant Leadership in Action, includes the personal stories from some of the most well-respected authorities on leadership." -- Eric Jacobson on Leadership and Management

"Servant Leadership in Action came to me at just the right time. I found it to be a great, inspiring read. I found it providing me with exposure to the minds of many of my favorite leaders. Perhaps more importantly, though, it exposes readers to different voices they would not have otherwise known. I have no doubt many (if not all) the contributions are immediately applicable to you and your career no matter your industry and role." -- 1Glories
