Our Character at Work: Success from the Heart of Servant Leadership
Many leaders need to win (and thus humiliate others), need to get their way (and thus threaten others), need to be seen in a positive light (and thus blame others), need to give good news to those they report to (and thus intimidate others into fudging reports when necessary), and need to be seen as powerful in every setting (and thus speak condescendingly to others).
Our Character at Work demonstrates that leadership is more effective and ethical when done in servant-led ways.
How do you become a servant leader? It begins with your heartâ€¦
Put everything you have into the care of your heart—the hidden, causative, motivational you—for everything you do flows from it. It is the real source of your outward life. It determines what your life amounts to. (Proverbs 4:23, author’s paraphrase)
Our Character at Work leads you on a personal journey, guiding you to an interior renovation of heart and soul that produces genuine and consistent servant leaders.
