When an individual or an organization recognizes the need to improve, they often search for a coach. Dating to Biblical times, the relationship between coach and coachee is foundational to our very nature. A good coach can help individuals and organizations develop leadership skills and competencies to survive and thrive no matter what the circumstances. Dr. Anita S. Greenlee explores the benefits of coaching (for coaches and coachees alike) in this servant leadership guide. She defines what coaching is, explores its origins, and answers key questions such as: • What kind of coach is needed to assist with ongoing staffing issues? • What do leadership development and coaching entail? • What should a potential client or coachee look for in a coach? • Does it matter if the coach is internal or external? She also explains what individuals and organizations should expect from a coach; the particular skills, certifications, and education that professional coaches should have; and strategies to get the most out of coaching—all within the context of Christianity. Position yourself and those who surround you for success with the insights and lessons in Coaching Is Servant Leadership.

A 2014 study by Bain & Company found that of 362 companies, 80 percent of management teams felt they delivered a better customer experience than rivals, but only 8 percent of customers agreed. Is your organization among those experiencing a decrease in customer service? In Changed Mind, Changed Heart: A Servant-Leadership Coaching Model, Dr. Merium R. Leverett provides a model of servant-leadership coaching that works to change the culture of the organization from one of organization-focused to customer-focused. We live in a world of hustle and bustle, everyone trying to get to one place or another and always in a hurry. In the process, we tend to push people through, coming across as only concerned about our needs. Changed Mind, Changed Heart: A Servant-Leadership Coaching Model offers a solution of how to put people first once again, through a three-stage modal of servant-leadership coaching that focuses on change. The three stages are: change mind-set, develop leadership, and change culture. When we put the term service back into servant-leadership, we focus more on leadership that serves the needs of the people and thereby become better servant leaders.

“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.

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.

In this book you will learn: * The skills and characteristics of great ScrumMasters * How to generate, maintain and increase engagement from the team * How to increase the effectiveness of the Scrum meetings, such as retrospectives and daily scrums. * How to foster a more creative and collaborative team * How to increase the performance of the team * How to know when you are a successful ScrumMaster Scrum Mastery is for practicing ScrumMasters who want to develop themselves into a great servant-leader capable of taking their teams beyond simple process compliance.

I am positive I will be referring back to this book for many years" Roman Pichler said: "I am thoroughly impressed with how comprehensive and well-written the book is. It will be indispensable for many people"

Social and behavioral science has for decades studied and recognized leadership as a social exchange between leaders and followers. But leadership is rather complex, and as such, it tends to lead to an increased interest within and across different disciplines. This book is an attempt to provide theoretical and empirical framework to better understand leadership challenges in various contexts. The authors cover an array of themes that span from an individual level to an organizational and societal level. In this volume, two sections are presented. The first section based on individual level focuses on different leadership styles and abilities, and the other section provides theories to understand leadership in public administration, in industrial settings and in nonprofit organizations.

This project focuses on exploring the potential of establishing servant leadership development coaching aimed specifically within the first five years of officership, when ministry skills, strengths, and attitude are being solidified in the individual. Can coaching be explored more fully as a development tool for positive, empowered servant leaders who can then replicate themselves among their congregational leaders? Are there structures in place that complement such an effort, and how can the puzzle pieces be fit together to build a strong servant leadership development framework that will enable the organisation to effectively steward its leadership resources? The following major project explores these and other questions. Is is hoped that the methods, structures and tools gleaned from the current literature on the subject will be useful to coach the development of willing workers--servant leaders ready to follow God's will within the Salvation Army--from executive summary.

There is a crisis within leadership. At the heart of the crisis lies the self-serving practices of executive leaders (Baron, 2010; Podolny, 2009). From massive layoffs, to surreal executive bonuses, to expunged and embezzled retirement funds, scandal after scandal has uncovered the harmful and unethical practices of CEOs in almost every corner of organizational and institutional leadership. These leadership practices have left the U.S. economy in a recession while the American trust is at all-time lows (Baron, 2010). Alternatively, servant leadership offers an antidote to the crisis-producing self-interest of leaders (Block, 1993). It posits an others-oriented approach to leadership which places others' needs above the leader's and therein may provide a solution for the selfish tendencies of leaders. A servant-leader seeks to serve first, and then, as the needs of others are identified, aspires to lead in order to serve those needs (Greenleaf, 1970). Therefore, servant leadership offers a meaningful, ethical, and practical solution to the current crisis within executive leadership. In light of executive leadership's crisis-laden environment and due to servant leadership's inherent principles and practices, the philosophy of servant leadership was selected as the primary topic of study for this research endeavor. Additionally, as a cursory glance at the literature of Coach Tony Dungy provided a fresh view of a potential servant-leader, Dungy became the principal subject of this study. Through the lens of Keith's (2008) seven key practices of servant leadership which entail: (a) self-awareness, (b) listening, (c) changing the pyramid, (d) developing your colleagues, (e) coaching, not controlling, (f) unleashing the energy and intelligence of others, and (g) foresight, Tony Dungy's leadership was analyzed by the method of content analysis. This study focused on the research question: Does the life of Tony Dungy exhibit the characteristics of a servant-leader?
