    • Spuyten Duyvil Bridge: over the Hudson River, between the Bronx & Manhattan, New York
    • Friday morning, October 1904, 3 a.m.:
    • Train crash  great tragedy, scores dead
    • Bridge closed for 18 months
    • Who was responsible?
  • 3. Prologue: The Lantern Swinger
    • Prime suspect: Lantern Swinger
    • Duty: Swing lantern if bridge is up & could not be crossed
    • Q. What is your occupation?
    • I am the Lantern Swinger.
    • Q. Where were you early on the Friday morning in question?
    • A. At my post.
  • 4. Prologue: The Lantern Swinger
    • Did you see the oncoming train?
    • Yes, I did.
    • Were you inebriated (drunk)?
    • No sir, I never drink.
    • Then tell the court what happened when you saw the oncoming train. Did you or didn’t you swing your lantern?
    • A. Y-y-y…yes I d-d-d-did swing the lantern .
  • 5. Prologue: The Lantern Swinger
    • After he was finally acquitted, the defense attorney asked him:
    • “ Why the stutter of a guilty man? We nearly lost our case? Were you lying to me all these months?
    “ I never lied to you…you just always asked me the wrong question. You asked if I swung my lantern. You forgot to ask if the lantern was lit.”
  • 6. Prologue: The Lantern Swinger
    • We live in an age of competence & skill.
    • We are well trained in our chosen fields.
    • We lead and manage our organizations…our companies.
    • We manage our time, we are even taught how to manage our relationships.
    • We are experts at swinging the lantern: just at what angle to swing it, how to hold it.
  • 7. Prologue: The Lantern Swinger
    • We forget that for the lantern to illuminate our way at all --- the lantern must be lit.
    • Only the fire of your unique character can light up your life, transform your existence
    •  from routine fulfillment of obligation
    •  to passionate unfolding of your distinct contribution to humanity
    • Is your lantern lit? Are you truly motivated to lead?
  • 8. Prologue to Greenleaf
    • HERMAN HESSE’s Journey to the East (1960s)
    • All is well with a journeying party, especially with Leo as the servant who sustains them with his caring spirit.
    • Then Leo disappears.
    • The group falls into disarray. The journey is abandoned.
    • They discover they cannot make it without the servant, Leo.
  • 9. Prologue to Greenleaf
    • Leo is found after many years of searching.
    • Leo is, in fact, the head of the religious order that sponsored the original journey.
    • GREENLEAF’S LESSON:
    • The great leader is first experienced as a servant to others.
    • True leadership emerges from those whose primary motivation is a deep desire to help others.
  • 10. Servant Leadership: A Definition
    • “ The servant leader is a servant first.
    • It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve.
    • Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.
    • This is sharply different from the person who is leader first.
    • The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served.”
    • - ROBERT K. GREENLEAF
  • 11. Reflections on Doing What Matters: Leading by Serving
    • “ There are two ways to be rich: one is to have more, the other is to want less. Happiness does not consist in having what you want, but in wanting what you have.”
    • - CONFUCIUS
    • “ Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”
    • - WARREN BUFFETT
  • 12. Reflections on Doing What Matters: Leading by Serving
    • “ There is joy in transcending self to serve others.”
    • - MOTHER THERESA
    • “ We make a living by what we get.
    • We make a life by what we give.”
    • - WINSTON CHURCHILL
  • 13. Test of a Servant Leader
    • Do those served grow as persons?
    • Do they, while being served, become healthier, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?
    • What is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit, or at least, not be deprived further?
