About the Author

DON M. FRICK is an associate editor of the Greenleaf Archives Project. LARRY C. SPEARS is executive director of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant-Leadership and editor of Reflections on Leadership (1995).


This is one of two collections of writings (with Seeker and Servant, Jossey-Bass, 1996) by former AT&T chief Greenleaf published posthumously under the auspices of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership in Indianapolis. Greenleaf has written extensively on "servant leadership" dealing with the uses, legitimacy, and requisite ethical constraints of power in daily life. These writings comprise a significant portion of Greenleaf's nonspiritual work. The first section, intended for young people, examines the "Ethic of Strength," while the essays on aspects of power, management, and organizations in the second section examine the practice of leadership. The book closes with a conversation with Greenleaf on the development of his thought, which has deeply influenced today's management writers. In a work of such scope, there are overlaps of coverage and points where the author's recommendations go beyond logical conclusions, but on the whole this is well worth the effort to explore it. A fine book that needs to be in academic, public, and corporate libraries.‘Littleton M. Maxwell, Univ. of Richmond, Va.
