Transform yourself and your organization through the power of servant leadership. In this informative and inspiring book, Mathew traces the true life stories, struggles, and enduring wisdom of ten men and women who changed the world by serving others. Based on Larry C. Spears's ten characteristics of a servant leader, Finding Leo engages the reader in a clear and compelling portrait of this powerful leadership philosophy through a vivid analysis of contemporary and historical servant leaders including Southwest Airlines CEO Herb Kelleher, Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman, missionary to the poorest of the poor Mother Teresa, educational activist Malala Yousafzai, Quaker abolitionist John Woolman, freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Greenbelt Movement founder Wangari Maathai, Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl, and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. From the classroom to the boardroom, the leadership lessons found in Finding Leo form an essential and practical guide for individuals, organizations, and communities looking to live for a higher purpose and seeking a path forward through others-centered leadership.
