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 audio clip, Ann relates that many businesses are having to restructure to stay viable. She asks Greenleaf, “What are we missing?” Greenleaf relates his experience with Townsend and Bottum. That his friend Bill Bottum worked to institute leadership as not a CEO with all the power and answers, but a Primus Inter Pares:First Among Equals. Like a Governing Board.
