Leadership With A Servant's Heart is a new series of books with you in mind. They will equip the front-line, mid-level and senior-level leaders of small, medium and large organizations, and churches, with practical and proven leadership principles, strategies, facts and real-time examples with the sole purpose of creating a new and dynamic cadre of leaders. Through the subtitle for book #1 Leading through Personal Relationships the principle goal is to teach, coach, mentor and share the concepts of leading others by valuing and caring for them. While it is true that Many will not remember what you say, but most will remember how you make them feel, the readers of this book will learn the truth of this emotion and how to effect change in their respective leadership styles. When leaders value and care for those that they are entrusted to lead, their influence increases exponentially.
Leadership With A Servant's Heart is systematically divided into three parts, three chapters each, to emphasize the core characteristics of a servant leader serving, inspiring and leading:
Part I - The Key to Servant Leadership: Serving Others
Part II - The Goal of Servant Leadership: Inspiring Others
Part III - The Result of Servant Leadership: Leading Others

"I commend to you Kevin Johnson's latest book, as he describes not only servant leadership theories, but provides practical applications and examples which connect the dots. As the president of a Christian university, and having served as the head of a 60,000 person federal agency (TSA), and Deputy Director of the FBI under Robert Mueller, with over 35,000 employees, I understand and appreciate the importance of those who lead with a servant's heart. Blessings as you apply Kevin's insights to your life."

"It is obvious that Kevin Johnson is a spirit-driven, kind and generous family man, servant of God and leader of men because he has lovingly crafted a book that speaks to those very traits. Quoting Kevin, "leadership is not convenient." Being a leader and taking on a leadership role is a tremendous responsibility, and a frequent sacrifice. The characteristic of quality leadership is a gift from God and to whom much is given, much is required. Sharing his personal experiences, Kevin Johnson has put into words the very essence of what it means to operate in your gift and to "inconveniently" give of yourself."
- Joan M. Pratt, CPA, Comptroller, City of Baltimore, Maryland
