Hunter's runaway best seller The Servant introduced over a million readers around the world to this philosophy of leading through courage, compassion, and character. Now with The Servant Leadership Training Course, this acclaimed author teaches listeners immediate, practical techniques for applying the revolutionary principles of servant leadership to their working lives. Drawing from the sold-out seminars he has presented all over the world, Hunter teaches listeners about:
In the business world, the greatest leaders emerging today are the ones who have learned how to serve their employees, not command them.

Why is there not a .pdf file included with the audible version?
It's very unusual in the self-help audio book to be entertained and sucked in... but I was from the first few minutes. I didn't want to have to turn it off.
His discussion on the ultimate servant leader and teacher, Jesus.
His personality and witty character. He's the "real deal."
I did chuckle a few times.
Could possibly use some editing - there have been a few places where I think he was meaning to use one word but used another, or repeated phrases or didn't seem very clear. It reduces the professionalism, but only by a margin. He has great delivery.
I wish there were worksheets or downloads to go with this!!
I enjoyed listening and will listen again. The practical section requires a study guide that the audio does not provide. It would be nice that Audible would make this one important aspect possible for download.
The practical part is very usable
Need the study guide.
With a very clear description, passionate and fun, this is one of the best training courses on servant leadership I have ever had. Every phrase is a gem. Very well structured and impecably exposed. A true high impact, life changing experience on this hard to explain -and practice- topic. After hearing this message, I understood that I have a hard -and worthwhile- journey to become an authentic leader.
If you are interested in leadership, this is a must listening course.
I listened to this for 5 minutes until he used the micro loan example to demonstrate and example of "smart trust". This was before the recession in 2008, which has been blamed on these types of loans. I stopped there and laughed as I reflected on the $15 that could have been spent on much more fulfilling material.
This book is highly recommended to anyone in a management or leadership position
It has many sub stories about leadership and how it can be used in our daily lives.
The author was very charismatic about the topic.
I was recommend this book by a close friend. I cannot thank him enough for the huge impact these principles can/will have on both my professional and personal lives.
I highly recommend this book for everyone!
