Marylhurst alumna, Cathy Bennett, speaks with Dr. Carolyn Crippen on her latest episode “Greenleaf’s Servant-Leadership & Quakerism: A Nexus” on BlogTalkRadio about how servant leadership informs and supports balanced education. This show focuses on the importance of academic education in forming the quality of our societies and citizenry. Using the lens of Robert Greenleaf’s Servant Leadership, Bennett and Dr. Crippen explore Greenleaf’s philosophy of servant first, leader second, as a way to build moral communities both within education and beyond. While Greenleaf did not cite any specific religious foundation for his concept of servant leadership, Dr Crippen sees a corollary between Servant Leadership and the Quaker faith. A Quaker herself, Dr Crippen sees similarities in the philosophical practices of both, like deep listening and reflective silence. Are we in our need for the instant “everything” letting go of our higher learning foundation as a basis for living a healthy, balanced life? Join Cathy Bennett and Dr Carolyn Crippen as they take a look at how servant leadership can help us approach life with a balanced perspective.
