The Servant Leadership Journal – An 18 Week Journey to Transform You and Your Organization
Servant leadership is a form of leadership that turns the traditional organization chart upside down; the leader exists to serve the people he leads. In the Servant Leadership Journal, author and servant leadership implementer Art Barter teaches nine behaviors necessary to grow into a servant leader. Through the journaling process, these behaviors will change your mindset about leading in your personal life and your organization. You can join us on this journey by changing your leadership behaviors—reaping rewards you never thought possible. There are four distinct steps that are key to effective journaling: Educate yourself on the meaning of each behavior. Understand where you are with each behavior. Be courageous to see the real you. Apply what you are learning to your life. What specific areas do you want to improve? Reflect by recording the results of your journey. Let’s change that old, worn out saying, “Walk the talk” to “Behave your talk.TM ” Show others you are serious about becoming a different type of leader—one who can be trusted to act the same way you talk.
About Art Barter (San Diego, California Author)
Art Barter believes “everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.” To teach people about the power of servant leadership, Art started in his own backyard by rebuilding the culture of the manufacturing company he bought in 2004, Datron World Communications. Art took Datron’s traditional power-led model and turned it upside down, and together with his management team, began to serve first. The result: a small international radio manufacturer grew from a $10 million company to a $200 million company in six years.
Through his stories, Art reveals Datron’s journey of moving from severe adversity to becoming a significant organization committed to leading for the sake of others in a popular keynote, “Can You Spare Any Change? Transforming Behaviors Through Servant Leadership.” He believes how you get results is more important than the results themselves, and his presentations on servant leadership-related topics have inspired audiences around the world.
As an authority on servant leadership implementation, Art shares his expertise in business books, on websites, through podcasts and in blogs. His experience with Datron’s transformation to a servant-led organization is chronicled in the book, The Art of Servant Leadership. Art’s newest book, Farmer Able: A Fable About Servant Leadership Transforming Organizations And People From The Inside Out, has been endorsed by leaders of servant-led companies including WD-40, Popeye’s, Franklin Covey, Ken Blanchard Companies, and John Maxwell Co. Through SLI, Art has commissioned two other books, The Cross and the Towel and most recently, Our Character at Work: Success from the Heart of Servant Leadership.
