Abstract

While it is good to see there are many leadership programs in the market in different parts of the world, there are several limitations of the existing leadership programs. Primarily, most of the programs focus on skills (i.e., doing) of leaders without much consideration of the inner qualities (i.e., being) of leaders. While skills are important, leaders with skills are just technicians or technocrats who are driven by their basic motives of acquiring fame or earning more money. However, true leaders are motivated by caring concern and moral values. Eight universities funded by a private foundation worked together to develop service leadership education. In this book we wish to document the achievements in different institutions and highlight the specific projects with different foci. We earnestly hope that through the publication of this book, service leadership education can flourish in different service economies.
