The Serving Leader: Five Powerful Actions that Will Transform Your Team, Your Business, and Your Community (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2004)

[From Amazon]

Mike Wilson is a respected consultant charged with the task of building a new practice area in leadership development. During the new project, he learns that his father is very ill and wants his only child to come home and help him with “”a few projects.”” Mike’s father is a well-known, retired CEO, and Mike gets his boss’s blessing to take as much time as he needs. Unbeknownst to him, Mike’s father and boss, longtime friends, have plotted this visit to help Mike learn some needed leadership and life lessons. So begins this compelling narrative that combines a very human story with the classical Greenleaf theory of servant leadership. The second book in the acclaimed Ken Blanchard series (called “”powerful testimony”” by Brad Orr, CEO of John Burnham & Co) is both a practical guide for effective leadership and a book about the personal journey of growth that real leadership requires.
