Servant Leadership in Action by Ken Blanchard

I finished Servant Leadership in Action: How You Can Achieve Great Relationships and Results by Ken Blanchard and Renee Broadwell yesterday. This is a collection of 42 essays from different leaders and coaches organized in 6 parts. 

  1. Fundamentals of Servant Leadership
  2. Elements of Servant Leadership
  3. Lessons in Servant Leadership
  4. Exemplars of Servant Leadership
  5. Putting Servant Leadership to Work
  6. Servant Leadership Turnarounds

Some of those articles were very helpful. Some well known authors got place in this collection as I expected – Ken Blanchard, Patrick Lencioni, Simon Sinek, Mark Miller. Blanchard provides a short introduction to each of the essays. There are several articles coming directly from how servant leadership got practiced by pastors and hence you will find frequent biblical references. Compared to that, not too many from engineering leaders of software companies which my primary area of interest. Overall its a modest book to get diverse perspectives on Servant Leadership.
