At Your Service: Living the Lessons of Servant Leadership
By: Charles E. Wheaton, Ph.D.
About the Book
What is the best way to inspire others
to work toward a common goal?
Is it by force, fear, or bribery?
Perhaps there is a better way!
In At Your Service: Lessons in Leadership, Charles E. Wheaton, Ph.D., examines leadership theory and differing leadership styles as identified and studied by numerous scholars and experts, placing special emphasis on the theory of servant leadership—i.e, focusing on the needs of others while staying in line with the organization’s overall mission, vision, values, and integrity, which in turn self-motivates individuals to apply their particular talents toward the common good.
This book, written for current leaders, would-be-leaders, and all those interested in organizational efficacy, is all about developing and maintaining positive relationships for the common good of all.

A quote from George Bernard Shaw clearly describes his life’s purpose: “I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.”
