"Servant Leadership: From Philosophical Ideal to Measurable Construct"

Join us for an effective presentation on Servant Leadership. With John Brown University Professor – Dr. Brad Gatlin

Synopsis

According to lots of memes on my LinkedIn timeline, Peter Drucker once said that “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” (According to the Drucker Institute, he never said any such thing.) Still, the philosophy persists in our organizations and in management theory. PMI’s recently-published Agile Practice Guide emphasizes servant leadership as a means to empower teams. This presentation will begin with the concept of servant leadership as originally proposed by Greenleaf, show how the construct has been developed through research over the past 40 years, and end with the presentation of a validated multidimensional measurement instrument that will allow the practitioner to measure what can be a rather nebulous construct

Bio

      Dr. Brad Gatlin is new to Northwest Arkansas and to PMI. He is a management professor who teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in strategic management, project management, and production/operations management. He believes that teaching management theory and skills is important, but not nearly as important as teaching young people to think, reason, and argue well (using both sound logic and charitable interpretation).

      After a stint roasting coffee and managing coffeehouses, Brad started his career in higher education in 2003. He holds a BS in Business and an MBA from Bryan College in Tennessee, and a Doctorate of Business Administration from Anderson University (IN). Dr.  Gatlin is currently Department Chair for Undergraduate Business and Associate Professor of Management at John Brown University in Siloam Springs.
