He compiles the lessons of a lifetime into one comprehensive document that can help point the way for leaders to the fulfilling life of “servant leadership”-that powerful, almost mystical capability to help people achieve beyond their fondest dreams, while living a life of faith and making priceless contributions to the people God brings into their life.  He takes a highly ethical and moral approach to developing employees, leading your business and balancing your life. He provides practical examples of how to build a business of which you can be proud by helping people succeed and achieve their goals which is a time proven way to ensure that you too will succeed.If you are seeking to improve your career, be a leader in all you do, build a business of integrity, or balance your life with better relationships – this book is for you!
