Highlighting Our December Sponsor: Servant Leadership Institute

We are grateful to have the Servant Leadership Institute as our Lead Change Group sponsor for December! The Servant Leadership Institute (SLI) exists to inspire and equip leaders to find meaning and purpose in their work, foster an environment of trust and respect at all levels in an organization, and achieve success. SLI offers a refreshing “others first” mindset.

Transforming your organization into a serve-first culture is a journey, and you’ll need inspiration along the way. That’s why SLI offers free webinars and podcasts. In addition, SLI has curated or written a number of leadership books.

SLI’s online Store carries books, booklets, and other tools to further build your leadership tool kit.

While you’re visiting the store, make sure and take a look at Farmer Able, the most recent addition. In this leadership fable about servant leadership transforming organizations and people from the inside out, the pigs run the farm!

As SLI shares regarding the book, “So begins the story of Farmer Able. Everyone on his farm—people and animals alike—are downright downtrodden by him. He’s overbearing and compulsively obsessed with profits and productivity. He’s a typical top-down, power-based manager, forever tallying production numbers in his well-worn ledgers. But the more he pushes the hoofs and horns and humans, the more they dig in their heels. That is until one day when he hears a mysterious wind that whispers: “It’s not all about me.” Can he turn things around and begin attending to the needs of those on his farm, thus improving their attitudes and productivity?

Farmer Able is an engaging parable that entertains as it enlightens. It reveals a profound truth about the dysfunction in organizations and how dramatic improvements can be made when leaders liberate employees to operate at their fullest potential and discover the significance in their work.”
