about this book

In The Servant Leader, Former Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry argues that a mangement style he dubs "servant leadership" offers a set of skills and ideals that will help leaders nurture the needs and goals of those who look to them for leadership. The result, he maintains, is a more productive, successful, and happier organization. Autry reveals how to remain true to the servant leadership model when handling day-to-day and long-term management situations, including how to:

•Provide guidance during conflict and crisis;
•Assure your continued growth and progress as a leader;
•Train managers in the principles of servant leadership;
•Transform a company with morale problems into a great place to work.

Practiced by one-third of the companies on Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, servant leadership is a thriving philosophy. Ultimately, Autry explores how it can be a valuable, refreshing, and rewarding approach to leading others in business life.
