Praise

“Greenleaf’s life reads like an adventure novel—an adventure in ideas, people and spirit. Organic gardener, painter, astronomer, jeweler, researcher, master craftsman, philosopher, trusted consultant to key leaders in business, education, philanthropy and religion, Bob Greenleaf fulfills the classic description of genius. An avid seeker of deeper insights into human potential, growth, and a kind of leadership that encourages the creation of great places to work, extraordinary teamwork, productivity and joy in work, Greenleaf’s insights into leadership open new possibilities for all of us.”
—Ann McGee-Cooper, Owner, Ann McGee-Cooper & Associates and author of Time Management for Unmanageable People and You Don’t Have To Go Home From Work Exhausted

“Don Frick has done an astonishing job of bringing to life my father and the times in which he lived.  The book illuminates the rich and meandering path which led Robert K. Greenleaf to the epiphany in which he conceived of the heroic and inspiring ideal of the servant-leader.”
—Dr. Newcomb Greenleaf, who carries on his father's lineage of servant leadership
