Leading Business Beyond Profit: A Practical Guide to Leading a Business to Profit and Significance
September 23, 2019
Hosted by Tom Crea
Poor and ineffective leadership is evident in all spheres of life, especially in business. A possible reason for the current leadership crisis is the application of ineffective and self-serving leadership practices that only aim to achieve selfish and short-term objectives at the detriment and longevity of people, business, society, as well as the environment. Listen to a more effective and proven leadership approach to sustain people, business, society, and the environment, namely servant leadership. We’ll discuss the dimensions and functions of a servant leader and address a refreshing book that also provides several systematic leadership frameworks to empower people and to build high performing and significant organizations. Leaders, consultants, and practitioners can use this book as a guide to implement servant leadership in a company to ultimately create a more profitable, significant, and sustainable organization.

“Your Evolving Leadership Journey” is for anyone who believes continuous learning is part of the ongoing leadership journey.
“Companies that did business from a foundation of love and purpose and practiced servant leadership produced a 1026 percent return to shareholders over a ten-year period, eight times more than the so-called Good to Great companies.” (Coetzer, 2019)
With a slant towards servant leadership, Tom interviews contemporary authors to drill down on topics such as long-distance leadership, resilience, clarity, culture, developing others, individual behavior, persuasion, managing up, spiritual best practices, character, values, trust and more.
Tom Crea is a leadership expert, decorated career Army Officer, and Blackhawk Helicopter pilot who learned to lead in a culture with a lineage of servant leaders. Because of his proven skills, he was hand selected to run the Army’s leadership development program at two Boston colleges, where he and his team transformed college students into combat leaders.
Tom is a Servant Leadership ambassador and the author of “Unleash Your Values: How to Lead and Succeed in Business Today: A Helicopter Pilot’s Spin on Developing the Leader in You.”
