Servant leadership in the military focuses on officers putting the needs of others above their own and seeing through the eyes of the people. When servant-leadership is combined with the understanding of Duty, Honor, and Country, a new era of leadership can be discovered across all branches of the armed forces. Implementing an understanding of servant-leadership will retain qualified individuals that are dedicated to continued growth and service in each branch of the armed forces. In this book, the authors highlight how servant leadership can improve officer retention. Learn how to: - lead the way through creativity and innovation; - encourage individuals to achieve their maximum potential; - set the right leadership tone; - build loyalty and engagement The authors also explain what various experts, such as Robert Greenleaf of AT&T; Gen. Douglas MacArthur; and Gen. David Petraeus have said about what it means to engage in servant leadership. Other topics include how military junior officers can be successful leaders by taking care of their troops, why servant leadership should be viewed as an inverted pyramid with commanders at the bottom and troops at the top, and how servant leadership points us toward a common humanity.
