Over a third of Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" adhere to a principle called "servant leadership". James C. 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. With foundational principles and practical exercises that apply to chief executives and local managers alike, The Servant Leadership Training Course gives listeners the keys to leading with integrity, authority, and compassion.

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 DO listen to The Servant Leadership Training Course repeatedly because like Jim says it's something that you need to hear again and again to keep it fresh in your mind.To utilize the information inside it is like exercising muscles you have to keep doing it for change to occur. I want very much to be a positive impact in the world and that requires daily exercise. Jim's training is the perfect way to prepare for work each morning, in my humble opinion.
The book is old but the ideas are timeless. It would be great if Jim updated his training course and tried not to use dated examples, but this book works great if you listen and learn.
this book did a great job framing some of the struggles associated with leadership and in my opinion the proper way that leadership should be executed. I hope to be able to apply some of these principles to my life
Although excellent content, this audio book is not a training "course" in my opinion. It repeatedly makes reference to a "workbook" but there is no workbook accompanying this audio book. Also, no can be "trained" to do anything simply by listening to a subject matter expert speak from their knowledge. Rather, people actually have to apply knowledge by practicing what the instructor is teaching. It's misleading to refer to an audio book as a training course. All said, the content is excellent and worthwhile.
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.
