Servant Leadership @ Leadership University

I like to begin with something I feel is exciting about leadership; the ability for one person to catalyze the shift in others to promote performance, productivity and well-being-—to serve:

The Leadership Qualities That Create a Winner

Build momentum.
Keep looking for what is missing or what has dropped out of your strategy.
Make a diagnosis.
Assess strengths and weaknesses.
Find the right people.
Build on their strengths.
Pair people in a mentoring relationship.
Constantly review your strategy.
Don't be caught up in daily events;
focus on executing the plan.

This week's business: CALL for SERVANT LEADERSHIP:

I'm putting out a call for Servant Leaders for LeadU.

There are several schools that are forming and each needs some dedicated servant leaders. The servant leader position at LeadU supports the vision/visionary of a particular school. This is high-potential position that requires an investment of $5000 and can be financed. There are several reasons why this position requires buy-in on multiple levels. We're serious about creating opportunity at LeadU for visionary and servant leaders. These two positions reside at the top of the hierarchy of our leadership and compensation system.

Previously, we've requested visionary proposals and received several of those. If you're interested in promoting a legacy of your own utilizing the power, accountability, authority and responsibility of the Leadership University System, we're interested in hearing from you and receiving a visionary proposal. These are ongoing and I anticipate working to find 36 dedicated visionaries to lead a variety of schools in LeadU.

However, at this time, I'm actively soliciting servant leadership positions.

Some schools will operate without visionaries as we search for the right vision and person to lead, but some schools are forming now and it is important to get people into the servant positions. The $5000 position can be financed, so don't shy away from the position if you see yourself as working at this level.

As you know, the visionary retains the right to hire and fire the servant and if the servant is for some reason asked to leave, the investment is repaid to them at time of departure, so nothing is risked in terms of losing your investment, plus you would have been received indirect referral commissions along the way that are yours to keep!

The reason that you might want to become a servant is varied.

1. To work with a vision to teach, support, lead and affiliate with other leaders at this prestigious level in LeadU could be a reason.

2. To receive a larger share of income distribution in the school.

Since all visionary and servant leaders are also founding members, they receive a *double-dip* into the revenue stream generated by our indirect compensation of $250 per person joining a school.

Becoming a servant leader exposes you to the public and enhances your ability to receive direct referrals. While the intensity of the involvement in the system increases as one would expect at the servant/visionary level, so does the opportunity to attract more clients, energy and money to your practice.

If you're interested in becoming a servant leader, I'll be conducting an information call next Friday at 10 AM ET at 865-362-4050 at PIN 1251# to answer your questions. If you don't want to wait until then drop me a note at coach@leadwise.com.

I'll leave you with Robert Greenleaf's definition of a servant leader:

What is Servant-Leadership?

Servant-Leadership is a practical philosophy which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant-leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening, and the ethical use of power and empowerment.

Robert Greenleaf, the man who coined the phrase, described servant-leadership in this way.

"The servant-leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. He or she is sharply different from the person who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions. For such it will be a later choice to serve - after leadership is established. The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature.

The difference manifest itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people's highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer, is: do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society; will they benefit, or, at least, will they not be further deprived?"

Taken from the Servant as Leader published by Robert Greenleaf in 1970.

It's amazing in some ways, 1970 is the year I graduated from High School. However, at the time I never heard of the concept. At this point, the paradigm of servant leadership is critical to Leadership University and most people haven’t heard of us.

If you are interested in becoming a servant leader for any one of the following schools, I'd like to talk with you about the position:

School of Developmental Coaching
Leadership Studies
Integral Leadership Development
Integral Humanities
Advanced Communication Dynamics
Integral Business Development
Integral Health & Wellness
Marketing Leadership

and of course any school that you would like to support. There are a number of proposed schools located here: http://www.leadu.com/levels/1.htm

I look forward to your application, which is an essay on why you would make an excellent candidate for servant leadership for one of the above or suggested schools. These positions are not permanent and if at a later date your preference changed, you could, if the position were available, your performance high--move to that position that might be created in the future. There would be no additional fee to be paid and of course all servants and visionaries retain their founding level position permanently.

A review of some of the discussion around the philosophy and strategy of LeadU regarding these elements is located at http://www.leadu.com/audio.


While there is no guarantee being made around compensation for these upper level positions, as a servant or visionary, you become eligible for double-dipping into the compensation system created through the proposed compensation program.

We have very aggressive goals, very lucrative revenue sharing and a great business model that makes referring easy. There is no reason not to expect regular and ample flows of income to be shared by productive and successful visionary and servant leaders. Over time, these positions can be sold to others for amounts over your investment as long as the person purchasing the position is approved by me and the visionary--making this a coveted, yet integral business opportunity.

I've taken a great deal of time and effort to weave this business model in all directions through an integral lens and we're serious about surpassing the existence needs of our visionary and servant leaders to free them to pursue their visions.

Thanks for being here, each week grows more exciting!

Call for Affiliate Leadership Servant Leader in the school of Marketing Leadership

This is the position of affiliate servant leader in the School of Marketing (red attention stream).

You would advance affiliate training for LeadU or for that matter any affiliate program and hold weekly calls to help people learn how to use affiliate marketing.

In exchange for your service, I will waive the $5000 fee for this servant position as long as you agree to teach affiliate marketing for 1 hr a week for approximately 1 year. You would need to be able to answer questions about how to affiliate market with LeadU and B\Coach products and to oversee it being taught when you could not, for a period of one year. After that time, oversight of the program by this servant would be sufficient, getting others to teach and administer the weekly program. No classes would be taught from Dec 15 to Jan 15 each year.

During that time, you would continue to grow our affiliate training program with new classes on affiliate marketing.

You would work under me as visionary and with others in the school of marketing in the sub schools such as:

Affiliate marketing
Database Marketing
Network Marketing
Joint Venture Marketing
Advertising and promotion
Spiral marketing

These are the proposed six servant streams that will make up the school of Marketing Leadership in LeadU
