A lively and engrossing tale about the timeless principles of effective leadership from a consultant and trainer in labor edecutivo with over baiixar years of experience. Makes the important distinction between serving the needs of others vs being a slave to their wants.
Rxecutivo, as with most of these hackneyed parables on which I rant, I can allow that there are nuggets to extract and add to your toolbox, or at least remind you of some of the tools you already have more reminder than teacher, this one Apart from the stereotypes emphasized from start to finish The author weaves the tail of an executive who, while visiting a monastery attains lessons on authority and leadership.
The audiobook on Hoopla has good narration. The author basically tells the reader in his introduction that he stole a bunch of ideas from people smarter than him and it made him a pile of money.
I confess that I did not jump right into this book the vaixar time I heard of it. How is it that in listing influential leaders the book only mentions one female and its Mary Kay!?!

The individual characters seem like charicatures. I find the way in which they all become equally enlighted at the of the story to feel really fake. That said, this book has some really good points. Most of them borrowed from others who have said it better and simply regurgitated here using narrative format with very simple language.
Personally, I have found the greate Overall, I found this book to be scripted and cliche'. Personally, I have found the greatest success there have been few for me as a leader when I have placed myself in the service of others. It is also helpful in understanding the need to meet peoples needs rather than just their wants. Good things to say about bounderies, integrity, and so on.
However, I really must take issue with a number of the points the book makes. PG All employees are volunteers of sorts. They can freely choose to work where they want. They can freely choose when to leave. Well that ain't really so. Last time I checked there were a number of factors that limit our choices i.
This book is a big proponent of free choice and a critic of determinism. Not surprising given its basis in evangelical thinking. They even site Frankl on matter of free choice later in the book. Fact is yes, we have choices but there are limitations on those choices.
This is not a bad thing, it just is. So basically, some folks stay in bad jobs because they need the money for food, rent, and gas. That can put them at a disadvantage when it comes to their relationship with their employer. Do not forget the power that money can yield in this society especially when you have limited sources of it. In many cases, the employer still holds a lot of the cards.
Consider the children in developing nations that sew our childrens soccer balls together. PG Money ranks 4 among what employees want.
Money still ranks and frankly it is a function of being treated with dignity and respect. Our financial compensation is based on how much value we create financially but it is also a reflection of how much value is placed on us. Consider the child mentioned above. Consider how much money he makes and then consider the profits of the soccer ball company. Consider the compensation of the CEO for that soccer ball company. Consider that workers wages have consistently declined while executive compensations and corporate profits have soared.
PG Throw-away society No doubt we are a throw-away society and perhaps I am the worst offender in this regard. But I find the use of abortion to support this point to be problematic. There is a comment here suggests that the decision to have an abortion is as simple and easy as tossing away something unwanted. There are so many points to be made against this that I am not sure where to begin. But I will end here, this is a difficult decision for any person or couple to make.
If they are pro-life that's right folks pro-life people have abortions or if they are pro-choice, it is a emotional, serious, and tough choice to make. It is even tougher to follow through with. I would be naive if I did not say that there are people who are flipant about this decision but that is extremely rare.
The vast majority of people make such a significant decision carefully and thoughtfully. Perhaps a better example, one that is never touched on very strongly, is the amount of resources that we use compared to our population. Not sure the exact percentages here but in the USA we consume a large portion of the available resources relative to our population.
How about those gianormous SUVs we see crusing around the burbs? You know the ones that get about 10 miles to the gallon? I could be wrong here but their sole purpose seems to be to prop up the ego. Is that not wasting resources? If the purpose of a vehicle is to get us and our gear from point A to point B AND a smaller vehicle will do the job, then isn't any vehicle larger than that in effect a waste?
Is that not simply throwing away resources that could be better used elsewhere?
Wouldn't our world be better served by a more wise use of our resources? How about applying servanthood in this context?
PG Smokers blame cigarette companies to their addiction. For the most part, I have to agree with the book on this one but fact is the cigarette companies deliberately manipulated nicotine levels so as to maxmize the chances for the smokers addiction.
Yes, everyone who put that first cigarette in their mouth made that choice freely AND there are plenty of people who struggled with the difficulty of quitting to shake the habit. So we know it can be done. But the fact is, the cigarette companies stacked the deck They even went so far to create cartoon characters to market their product so as to get young people to smoke.
Here again, coupled with nicotine levels intended to produce addiction, they ensure a stable and reliable market for their products and profits. All this while internal documents clearly and directly link their product to cancer and heart diesease. Were it not for these actions, the books point would have been stronger. If we are talking about being servants here then where is the service in the cigarette companies actions?
Where is their responsiblity? There is a subtle message here that corporations are not to blame for the impact of their actions. Why isn't the notion of responsibilty that is applied to individuals also leveled at corporations?
The so called Twinkie Defense was hyped by the media to grab the public's attention and create ratings. If you take about 10 seconds to drill down into the issue, you would find that the legal defense of Dan White based based on a bi-polar disease and not twinkies.
Twinkies were simply evidence supporting an overall defense based upon mental illness. And from what little I know, the guy was definately whacked. He should be held responsible but still he was whacked out. My point is this. As a casual observer of the news, we can have these sort of knee-jerk reactions and comments. As a published author, one has a greater responsibility to get their story straight. Otherwise, we simply perpetuate a half-baked understanding of the facts.
Where is the servant in that? Okay, I am off my soap box.
View 1 comment. Jun 23, Shane rated it really liked it. Overall a great read - another practical leadership book told in story form.
Interesting cast of characters getting leadership coaching from a cloistered Monk who once was a renowned leader in industry. Key takeaways; 1: Listening - "true" listening is selfless.
Leadership is a choice You chose it. It is huge responsibility to have been entrusted with the well being of so man Overall a great read - another practical leadership book told in story form.
It is huge responsibility to have been entrusted with the well being of so many people. Leadership is a skill - The skill of influencing people to work enthusiastically toward goals identified as being important. Leadership is about authority not power.
Power - The ability to force or coerce someone to do your will, even if they would choose not to, because of your position or might. The skill of getting people to willingly do your will because of your personal influence. Upside down triangle 2 for a leadership model Leadership begins with "Will" - Aligning our intentions with actions and our choice of behavior, we can choose Love The Verb and ID and Meet the legitimate needs of people Not wants - as a result we will have to serve and sacrifice - where we build influence and authority and eventually earn the right to call ourselves leaders.
Serving is different from being slave. Love the Verb Agape-from the bible not a feeling. The environment - we don't make things grow - we provide the environment and opportunity for it. Relational bank accounts - start at zero, withdrawals, deposits Legislate behaviors as a condition of employment Because if you want to work here this is how we behave. Lou Holtz when asked how he managed to have every one in his team so enthusiastic he said: Unconsciously unskilled - don't know the skill exists and are obviously unskilled.
Consciously unskilled - I know I need it, but not good at it yet Conscious and skilled - know it, can do it Unconsciously skilled - natural act and don't even realize I am doing it well Habit The payoff - "Joy" Not happiness.
Jul 14, Alison Jones rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: It's not just for those wanting to be good "leaders", it's for those that want to be better people.
O MONGE E O EXECUTIVO
I loved this book because the author was not pretentious in any way. He had absolute faults - - not slight faults that really don't matter and in no way illustrate the magnitude of the point cough cough, Stephen M. Covey - - real faults, real moments of shame, insecurity, and need for growth. That is, to symbolize something, we must know what deserves to be symbolized, and it is in the subjects in which we find part of the answer.
In chapter IX, in the midst of a reflection on the principality, it is argued that it is instituted either with the support of the people or the great ones, and they do not wish to be oppressed, while the latter yearn for oppressing, therefore, to please the people is easier, since he has a more honest purpose, being easier to fulfill his desires, since those desires are based only on not being oppressed.
In addition, it says there is no security for the leader who does not like the majority, and after analyzing the circumstances of what supports are most valuable, raises two precious observations. In this way, Machiavelli concludes: He who makes himself prince for the favor of the people must remain his friend, which offers no difficulties, because he wants simply to not receive oppression.
But he who ascends to the principality against the will of the people, by favor of the powerful, must, first and foremost, conquer the people Maquiavel, , p.
The Servant: A Simple Story about the True Essence of Leadership
Moreover, in chapter XIX, reserved to address the ways of avoiding being despised and hated, precisely by his subordinates, Machiavelli says it is fundamental for the leader to distance himself from being seen as frivolous and cowardly, as the navigator dodges cliffs. Thus, having addressed the role of those in the above, there is no doubt that the people and their needs are of the utmost importance in Machiavelli's conception, which shows that his perceptions of leadership are not so far removed from those preached by Hunter.
In both the leadership is shown as important, and conquering it is fundamental, what changes is the way to act on certain occasions.
Moreover, the way these writings present themselves, in addition to the content they convey, invites the employee to a fantasy of seeking leadership and self-improvement. In this sense, Hunter's work helps bring a universe that can be considered immersed in this fantasy world we are dealing with, in which successes and failures that seem to depend solely on the person himself and his ways of acting, forgetting that there is a whole network of elements that are closely linked to these issues.
Hunter forgets, or at least minimizes, what Machiavelli has called a fortune, and along with the virtues of the leader, are at the basis of leadership relations. In this sense, as we have shown, the world designed by James C.
Hunter is hardly seen in the real world, yet it cannot be exempted from being linked to it, since it serves a whole productive logic that increases employee productivity and consequently the gains of corporations, which emphasizes that, even starting from essentially fantastical premises, The Servant and the reading of pop management, in general, cannot be ignored as mere literature to be discarded.
Thus, since personal satisfaction shows itself to be closely linked to professional achievement, in Hunter's universe presented in The Servant, personal fulfillment must be accompanied by professional achievement, which is to meet the productive interests of the companies.
In this sense, Hunter's leader is not too far from Machiavelli's leader, since both use strategies and manipulation to stay in power.
When we think of a company that adopts the philosophy of loving its employees, we can, after a deeper analysis, realize that in the end, that matters little. In fact, what she seeks is more productive employees. The speech of love is the key to this, to be used. In this sense, love, at least within this corporate branch, can be understood much more as a strategy of maintaining an order than altruism and benevolence. From these relationships, we can see that the idealized leaders of Hunter and Machiavelli, so distant in time and in their representations, deep down are not leaders so distant from each other in their conceptions, for both seek to remain in power, each by means of the weapons that they find most appropriate, each according to the demands of their time.
The Servant allows the insertion of the leaders in a fictitious relationship, in which the leader becomes a symbol of romanticizing, representing the will of the employees to achieve in the work their personal well-being and simultaneously the professional. A deep connection is then formed between employee and company, which turns the organization into an entity in which the employee devotes his power to act, and who consecrates this enterprise as a part of himself, as an essential part of his own essence as a subject.
In this universe, therefore, the company, through a discourse based on love and generosity with its employees, and headed by a leader who symbolizes that and who manipulates these employees to a very mundane end based on power and profit, The center of a range of desires, aspirations and interests. From the moment that the employee sees his personal life as intricate to the company in which he works, whose personal desires and social life are equivalent to the professional world lived, not only does the employee feel love, but also feels the fear, because his employment has already become a precious and too essential commodity to be lost, so even within this discourse based on employee well-being, there is a whole strategy of hidden power, since it makes this employee very dependent on these organizations, which justifies conduct, in addition to being productive, loyal.
Losing employment in this sense means losing much more than a source of income, but losing all identity and stability in this fluid and intense postmodern world, so that employment becomes too valuable to be put at risk, and adapting to the conduits ends up being necessary to guarantee this longing for social and identity stability.
The following logic is thus obtained: Hunter's leader centralizes in himself all the positive visions and fanciful desires of the employee; the evils and the possibility of suffering them that arise in the life of the collaborator, in the opposite way, are hidden, or even the cause is distorted by the demands of the market, or even more, by the mistakes of the leader himself, who makes them the main culprit for their failures, as if the external agents should be excluded or minimized.
Thus, from the perspective of one who occupies a subordinate function, for example, professional achievements, reaching a higher position in the organizational hierarchy, or a salary increase are received as a result of the good return rewarded by the company.
Therefore, even if these promotions have advantages, they also reflect this hidden perspective present in The Servant of which we have spoken, which binds the worker to the company, precisely because it shows itself as benevolent towards its employees, too precious to be put at risk.
Conclusion We conclude, then, that the ideas in The Servant, which preaches a model of leadership based on love, are not so different from the ideas proposed by the seemingly antagonistic The Prince, who advocates a leadership model based on reason and in coldness, both serve as a guide to how leaders of companies or states should be, and how they should behave in order to maintain their power and control their leaders, extracting from them all the support that justifies their legitimacy in power, at the same time as they advocate the use of strategies for this, whether based on love or fear, but designed to achieve this common goal.
However, the distances in time and space between the two authors helped to obfuscate these similarities, which, basically, after going through a deeper and more accurate analysis, show themselves quite convergent in the objectives, changing only the strategies used to reach them.
If today's world preaches that by being a charismatic, benevolent, and servant leader, that leader will gain greater control over his employees, and will maximize the profits of his corporation, and better secure his own retention in power, so they should do it, Machiavelli would probably say.

But I will end here, this is a difficult decision for any person or couple to make. Why not a book essentially technical, involving the issue of leadership? This book greatly shaped the way I ran student government during my time at NC State.
The Choice Determinism vs response-ability frankl We have the ability to choose - at biological and everyday level. I plan to use it in my own teaching and, hopefully, inculcate it in my own leadership philosophy. Otherwise, we simply perpetuate a half-baked understanding of the facts. Leaders who do not hold their people are thieves and liars.
