Servant Leadership

Ben introduced me to this new term. I’ll let you know more after I read the books I ordered, but for now…

From Wikipedia: “Servant leadership is a philosophy and practice of leadership, coined and defined by Robert Greenleaf and supported by many leadership and management writers such as James Autry, Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey, Peter Block, Peter Senge, Max DePree, Larry Spears, Margaret Wheatley, James C. Hunter, Kent Keith, Ken Jennings, Don Frick and others. Servant-leaders achieve results for their organizations by giving priority attention to the needs of their colleagues and those they serve. Servant-leaders are often seen as humble stewards of their organization’s resources (human, financial and physical).”

A Place to Call Om

From Gale;
I’ve learned why people set aside a special place for yoga. Doing it in my family room means my mind always wonders over to my book shelf and I mentally go over what books are there that I still have not read. Or, I go over the books I should donate to the library. Or, I look at the dust that needs wiping, or the pillow that needs fluffing…you get the picture.
