When I first read Robert Greenleaf’s The Servant As Leader in the 1970s, I did not know I would dedicate much of my life to helping leaders put actionable steps to some of the author’s groundbreaking ideas.

Today, we’re seeing a movement towards servant leadership. From manufacturing industries to fast food franchises, organizations are leaving autocratic, hierarchic leadership models for practices that “Upend the Pyramid,” value people, serve customers, and paradoxically increase productivity and profitability.

This movement is served by a growing number of contemporary leaders, a number of whom I have the honor of joining in a special, online event entitled the Servant Leadership Summit. It takes place on Monday, November 9th, and you’re invited to participate in this exclusive, free webinar.


Hosted by Becky Robinson of Weaving Influence, and Karin Hurt of Let’s Grow Leaders, the online Summit will pair two thought leaders for 30-minute conversations on various aspects of servant leadership in action.

In addition to myself, participants include:

  • Ken Blanchard, bestselling author of The New One Minute Manager and servant leadership guru.
  • Mark Miller, bestselling author of 5 books including Chess Not Checkers, and Chick-fil-A Vice President for Leadership Development.
  • Cheryl Bachelder, CEO Popeye’s® and author of Dare to Serve.
  • Ken Jennings, bestselling co-author of The Serving Leaderand leadership consultant.
  • Pat M. Falotico, CEO of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership.
  • Matt Tenney, author of Serve to Be Great, social entrepreneur, and keynote speaker.

During the online Summit, questions from participants will be taken, enabling us all to learn together. The speakers will discuss ways leaders can serve effectually, and how it will make a difference in your organizations and lives.

I encourage you to register today by clicking here and to share this blog post with your friends on social media.

See you at the Summit!
