Posted by & filed under Ann McGee-Cooper, From the Treehouse, servant leadership.

What you are about to witness is a never-before released interview from the mid 80’s when our lovely Ann was being mentored by Robert K Greenleaf, the founder of modern-day Servant Leadership movement.

We divided the 70-minute interview into 10 easy-to-digest segments and we will be publishing one every week.


In this second segment, Ann asks Greenleaf about how leaders can serve during tough times. Greenleaf offers two suggestions: (1) Tough times sometimes call for swift, decisive actions and they may seem abrupt. “You can be strong without being tough.” (2) Take advantage of the “good times” to prepare and build trust for the tough times.”
