This episode’s guest is one of my heroes, Ken Blanchard.
He’s the author of the one and only, One Minute Manager. This book is available in over forty-five languages and has sold twenty-three million copies.
Ken is also the co-founder and Chief Spiritual Officer of The Ken Blanchard Companies, a leading international training and consulting firm.
His newest book is called Simple Truths of Leadership: Fifty-Two Ways to Be a Servant Leader and Build Trust. In it, he explains the concept of a servant leader, which you might consider an oxymoron, but it is Ken’s guiding principle of leadership.
Ken received his bachelor’s and Ph.D. from Cornell University, and a master’s degree from Colgate University.
He spends time as a visiting lecturer at Cornell, where he is also on the Board of Trustees.
In 2005, Ken was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame, as one of the top twenty-five bestselling authors of all time.
As an added bonus and something that I did not anticipate would happen, Ken tells a couple of great inside stories about Peter Drucker and Norman Vincent Peale, two more legends in management theory and writing.
If you are interested in becoming a better leader, this is the episode for you.
