The Leadersmith


May 26, 2021

In this episode I sit down with Jim hunter, author of the Servant, the Servant Leadership Training Course, and the Culture. It is a fascinating conversation where Jim unpacks the difference between leadership and servant leadership.

We talk about character as the core of effective leadership, how to develop it, the difference between a bad boss and a petulant child, the difference between power and authority, and the role of sacrifice in leadership,


What is the ultimate test of leadership: “do people raise their game under your influence?”  


This is the first part of a two-part conversation. We continue the conversation in the next episode. We will cover why we need to hear this message repeatedly, the difference between power and accountability, how leadership is like love, the power of community in culture, and how his thinking has progressed over time.
