Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership bio picture
  • The Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership is an international nonprofit organization that serves individuals and organizations seeking to be better servant-leaders. We provide that service through a variety of programs you will find described here on our website.

    We are guided by the wisdom of our founder, Robert K. Greenleaf, who wrote The Servant As Leader and launched the modern servant leadership movement nearly 50 years ago. Both an ancient philosophy and modern practice, servant leadership enriches the lives of individuals, builds more effective organizations of all kinds and, ultimately, creates a more just and caring world.

Servant Leadership featured in Quality Progress Magazine

ASQ At Your ServiceThe November issue of ASQ‘s monthly magazine, Quality Progress, features an article about servant leadership and the Greenleaf Center’s service to ASQ’s board of directors.  Here’s an excerpt of the article, “At Your Service: Servant Leadership Culture Builds Efficient and Results-Focused Teams”:

“There are parallels between servant leadership and continuous quality improvement.  The enrichment of people is at the heart of both concepts.  And like continuous improvement, servant leadership is an unending journey.

“‘Quality is always a journey of continuous improvement, and likewise, so is servant leadership,’ [the Greenleaf Center's, Kevin] Monroe said. ‘There’s never a point where you can arrive and say, ‘Wow, we’ve reached absolute quality and we don’t have to worry about it anymore.’ Servant leadership is the continuous improvement of people.’”
