In 1970 Robert Greenleaf coined the term "servant leadership" in an essay entitled "The Servant as Leader." He described this kind of leader as one who wants to serve--to serve first. That person, he wrote, is "sharply different from one who is leader first." Over the past four decades a growing number of leaders have taken note of Greenleaf's ideas, successfully applying his principles in a wide range of venues. Co-Serve International, an Oregon-based public charity, has been sharing the concepts of servant leadership with students and teachers at international universities, as well as with business and church leaders. Dr. Marshall Christensen, founder of Co-Serve, will discuss how servant leadership transforms ideas and practices of future leaders around the world.
