With an introduction on using the principles of The Servant in your life and career, this book redefines what it means to be a leader. In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery. To John's surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice. Along with John, you will learn that the principles in this book are neither new nor complex. They don't demand special talents; they are simply based on strengthening the bonds of respect, responsibility, and caring with the people around you. The Servant's message can be applied by anyone, anywhere--at home or at work. If you are tired of books that lecture instead of teach; if you are searching for ways to improve your leadership skills; if you want to understand the timeless virtues that lead to lasting and meaningful success, then this book is one you cannot afford to miss.… (lisätietoja)

Not a particularly good book on leadership. I think it was in my queue because some other book had been espousing the benefits of "servant leadership", which as a concept is decent, but this is just not a very good book. It's told in a very heavy-handed story form (setting: a class on leadership at a monastery!), is essentially all cliche, no realistic examples of anything worthwhile, and generally poor to mediocre throughout.

LA PARADOJA

¿Qué cualidades se necesitan para ser un buen jefe? ¿Cómo se consiguen la autoridad y la credibilidad necesarias para dirigir de forma efectiva? Este libro responde a estas y a otras muchas preguntas, y nos recuerda los principios universales que nos permiten colaborar con los demás, ya sea en el trabajo o en el ámbito familiar:

-No hay autoridad sin respeto.
-El respeto no se funda en la imposición ni en el miedo, sino en la integridad, la sinceridad y la empatía con el prójimo.
-No podemos cambiar a nadie, sólo podemos cambiar nosotros mismos.
-El trabajo lo hacen las personas, y no puede hacerse un buen trabajo sin cuidar las relaciones humanas.

Los principios del liderazgo son tan simples que se nos han olvidado por completo. Confundimos la autoridad con el poder y el respeto con el miedo, lo que lleva a unas relaciones tensas y recelosas entre jefes y subordinados, y a un triste resultado: cuando un equipo trabaja para contentar al jefe, ¿quién se ocupa realmente del trabajo?

En esta nueva edición de La Paradoja, el autor nos acompaña un prólogo en donde relata la experiencia que le ha traído el éxito de este libro y de su continuación: Las claves de la paradoja, y sintetiza las nuevas enseñanzas que ha permitido que en todo el mundo se hayan aplicado con éxitos sus principios de liderazgo.

If you read only one book on leadership... ...please, don't choose this one.

Derivative, ham-fisted and dumbed down beyond the point of obvious, Hunter takes the childish simplicity of something like Blanchard's didacticism and bafflingly makes it even more banal. And he's blind to his flaws. Tell me what's wrong with this, Hunter's introduction to the cast of caricatures...uh, characters...he'll use to hammer...uh, illustrate...his points: The teacher asked the six of us to introduce ourselves with a brief bio along with our reasons for attending the retreat.

My roommate - Lee, the preacher - introduced himself first, followed by Greg, a young and rather cocky drill sergeant from the U.S. Army. Theresa, a Hispanic public school principal from downstate spoke next, and then Chris, a tall, attractive, black woman who coached women's basketball at Michigan State University. A woman named Kim introduced herself ahead of me and started telling us about herself but I wasn't listening. I was too busy thinking about what I would say about myself when it was my turn to speak. Apart from the stereotypes (emphasized from start to finish...the drill sergeant and preacher go at each other a lot, by irritatingly overdone design), anything else? No? I'll come back to that. Peppered throughout his parabolical tale, Hunter ... reveals...the obvious, cloaked in pseudo-wisdom ("The key then to leadership is accomplishing the tasks at hand while building relationships." - his italics) And then blather like "Our unconscious mind and the dreams it gives us has untold riches that we are only beginning to understand."

Hunter didn't even have the decency to acknowledge Ross Perot when poaching Perot's quote on management, people, and inventories. Or Noel Burch for the four stages of competence. Or...

There's nothing wrong with rewriting old stuff by others into a new story...but at least give credit. Now, as with most of these hackneyed parables on which I rant, I can allow that there are nuggets to extract and add to your toolbox, or at least remind you of some of the tools you already have (more reminder than teacher, this one)...

...but you have to wade through the peat and sift the muck to find the treasures. Fortunately, applying a modicum of intellect will help the baby seals escape the clubbing Canadians and the discerning readers can sidestep the drivel.

And finally, at risk of offending for such an obvious observation, why did Hunter need to apply the sexist "attractive" to the tall black woman (who was a ... basketball coach)?
