Servant leadership — in life, the military and the classroom

Anything worthwhile is worth working for and nothing’s free. That’s the mantra of Dr. James Turner, a faculty member in the Donald W. Maine College of Business at Davenport University.

James TurnerTurner will speak at the 19th annual International Leadership Association’s global conference in Brussels, Belgium, this month about “Military Servant Leadership in Turbulent Times.”

The session culminates his lifetime of experience as a servant leader and retired United States Air Force Officer with nearly three decades of active duty military service. It also summarizes his dissertation for his doctoral degree in management, which he defended this summer.

“I applied all that I learned as a child growing up, taking care of my siblings, and taking care of my troops when I was a commander. I always put their needs above my own,” he said.
