LA CROSSE, Wis. – A new book featuring servant leaders from La Crosse and Tomah has been published by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership at Viterbo University.

Implementing Servant Leadership: Stories from the Field by Don Frick, Ph.D., provides an inside look into the servant leadership development program at the Tomah Veteran’s Administration Hospital, the Tomah Area School District, and Peaberry’s coffee shop in La Crosse.

Viterbo is hosting two release events and forums featuring the author and local subjects of the book, Thursday, April 23 from 4–6 p.m. at the Tomah Public Library and Friday, April 24 from 5–7 p.m. in the Reinhart Center Board Room on the Viterbo campus.

The book will also profile servant leadership at TDIndustries in Dallas, which adopted the principles nearly four decades ago, and will include chapters that summarizes lessons learned by organizations that implement Servant Leadership and an “executive primer” about the basics of servant leadership.

Frick is the authorized biographer of Robert K. Greenleaf, who is known as the father of servant leadership, and the author and co-author of several books, including the recently released Seven Pillars of Servant Leadership: Practicing the Wisdom of Leading by Serving. He is also an instructor in Viterbo’s Master of Arts in Servant Leadership program.

Implementing Servant Leadership: Stories from the Field is the second book published by the Reinhart Institute Press. Doing What’s Right, Right in the Non-profit Sector was its first effort. Both books are $15 and are available at the Viterbo University bookstore. For more information, contact the bookstore at 608-796-3848 or
