After more than two years of hard work and research, the book, “The Role of Compassion in Servant Leadership” is complete and for sale! Here is the explanation by Dr. Foor on why this book is important in our lives today.
“Are you a parent? Then you’re a servant leader to your children. Do you manage employees? Then you’re a servant leader to them. Do you own your business? Then you’re a servant leader to your clients. Do you work for a publicly traded company? Then you’re a servant leader to shareholders. Servant Leadership impacts us all and compassion is vital in our modern lives. The research conducted through 12 industry leaders shows compassion indeed plays a role in servant leadership through teaching by example, improving the well-being of others, and building positive relationships between companies and employees.”
This book uses a doctoral, academic-based, research study to examine the relationship of compassion and servant leadership to 21st Century management styles. This investigation of the extent compassion plays a vital role in the servant leadership model. The study was developed to explore this research question: “What is the role and importance of compassion in servant leadership?”
The author used a qualitative research approach to analyze interview responses from 12 industry leaders regarding the concept of compassion and its role in servant leadership. Emergent themes suggested that compassion indeed plays a role in servant leadership through teaching by example, improving the well-being of others, and building positive relationships between companies and employees.
The author’s goal for this publication is to share this research that was the basis of his doctoral dissertation research and to reach out to the business community to find others with the same research interest. Further study can be conducted in standardization of compassion in the workplace, and explorations of how compassion as a behavior in servant leadership improves employee morale and possibly retention.
This publication is the first of two, the first being the baseline research study, and the second being the results of ‘what to do’ – how business leaders today can start becoming a compassionate leader in a business community, based on the concept of being a ‘compassionate leader’ or a ‘servant leader’ in industry and business.
The author urges the reader to follow his business page, contact him from further consulting on how to become a servant leader, as well as engage him for speaking engagements. Dr. Foor can consult with your executives and middle management teams on servant leadership for higher company morale, productivity, retention, and business profits.
