If you’ve ever wanted more love, joy, and success in your life, then do we have the Servant Leadership in Action show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Ken Blanchard, one of the most influential leadership experts in the world, the co-author of The New One Minute Manager, and more than sixty other books with over 21 million books sold in 42 languages. In 2005 Ken was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top 25 bestselling authors of all time.

And he is the co-editor of a brilliant new book on leading from the heart, Servant Leadership in Action: How You Can Achieve Great Relationships and Results.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about how you can achieve great relationships and results, by leading out of love.






With a passion to turn every leader into a servant leader, Ken Blanchard shares his inspiring insights with audiences around the world through speeches, consulting services, and bestselling books. Universally characterized by his friends, colleagues, and clients as one of the most influential and compassionate leadership experts in the world, Ken is respected for his lifetime of groundbreaking research and thought leadership.  In fact, few people have influenced the day-to-day management of people and companies more than Ken Blanchard.

He is the cofounder and Chief Spiritual Officer of The Ken Blanchard Companies®, an international management training and consulting firm that he and his wife, Margie Blanchard, established in 1979 in San Diego, California. In addition to being a renowned speaker and consultant, Ken is a former trustee emeritus of the Board of Trustees at his alma mater, Cornell University, and he also teaches students in the Master of Science in Executive Leadership Program at the University of San Diego.

Ken’s impact as an author is far reaching. The One Minute Manager®—the iconic 1982 classic that he coauthored with Spencer Johnson—sold more than 13 million copies and in 2015 was revised and released as The New One Minute Manager®. Ken has authored or coauthored 60 books whose combined sales total more than 21 million copies. His groundbreaking works—including Raving FansThe Secret, and Leading at a Higher Level, to name just a few—have been translated into 42 languages. In 2005 Ken was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top 25 bestselling authors of all time.
