"Wrong more likely to receive it because you're as apt to give it away celebrates I encouraged to people to recognize it tone matters. We are human beings servant leaders are not since. All right. We are human beings a straighted. But if I offered you the back in was frustrated that till netters, although I ask you to do it right away. 'cause you would miss some of the things you needed to observe if you're really frustrated I urge you to take a walk. I who will down and really focus on your home because your tone is going to underline your emotions, even if the words of those just some things I offer as ideas in. I think what I love is. I think many people struggle to give feedback continues to be something I struggle with. And the idea of like, you know, start with facts and talk about impact will use that as you say catching people doing things right instead of good job today. Pat, you know, there's some some positive recognition it'd be better to say hat when you did that trial close at the end of the sales call he then opened up and gave you one more objection that you are then able to handle and then it went like, it's a whole it's the same fetal state. The fact what did you do the impact and just do positive feedback with that model Intel it's like second nature, and then we'll spin into the constructive version just to sit people's eat both ears will be trained that you are based on their learning. You are learning and they're gonna be so willing to hear it. People are out there. They'll set saying why don't we give people the sandwich metha- stage. Why and safe? The. Something else. Nice. I lose the meat. Right. Because I I heard all the good stuff in my brain wants to latch onto the good stuff. Got to be honest about me. Right. Right. So let me let me leave. With this. I don't know if there's going to be in the United hopeful note or not I mean, do you get frustrated? I mean think about how long we've had servant leadership out there. Right. And how long so many people have been trying to spread that message? And boy, you know, whether you're looking. So here in the United States, you know, but, but it's not limited to just hear like, whether it's our government institutions, whether it's businesses whether it's our neighbors, you know, it it often seems like we're going backwards in terms of the spirit of this. And that we need the message more now than ever before. I mean, how do you see it? I so I am. Any curable? Awesomeness? So let me start with that so much. So that on January the twenty first I sent five hundred thirty five serving as leader hobbies to every member of congress caster. And I encourage them to explore their servant nature as they opened the new the new year in s them to think about do we serve. I I think the issue in our our society is that we still we wait leadership with those who cumulate how. How? I think we need to demand something difference. This is my other absolute belief. I am the mother millennials. And I do believe that they are going to demand. Something different. Don't change society can truly invest in their growth in the way, they think about the rod definition of leadership because I know that they get the purpose thing, right? I think we can really invest in the growth of that generation of leaders over time this will shift. That's when our call is a some great friends here in Atlanta where on live have lived for about twenty five years. That have been in business business roles. Great Senate rolls that give that to our community and at the sixty seventy year old level of their life. They're focused on what a Civic Leadership like for the twenty and thirty somethings and their coaching and their mentoring, and they're inviting those younger people to the table that they otherwise wouldn't have access. Because we know that we're going to build the society, you're younger than I am. I might not see it. You may not see it. But I want my son to daughter to see it. I want them to be part of it. And that's why it's so or rust who invest out younger people see leadership universities have Jude a place to play in that there's a number of them around the United States, the practice service leadership said embedded in their curriculum. That would in experiences that we gotta be feel more hopeful for that. I think that's great. I've got three kids two in college one in high school. And and I know those a little bit older them to does seem like a younger generation disassociates power with leadership and is a little bit more focused on on others and giving back yet. So I'm going to ask all of your listeners to go to my web. Site find the the little bit on. It's actually on Lincoln in our face. The back in January will posted about that. A congressional mailing Sydney now to your elected official and saying, hey, what you get out of that reading that. She great. It would be so much fun to get people challenged. I got riot. People say that's a great idea. But I asked them. Put a little bit more pressure. You know, from what I understood when I worked fry B M you've got three people call a congressman's office, the pay. The pay. One-stop good enough. So I did the one I sent it over the map need to more be for every congressperson all be the two. So now, we just need the one others. Right. That's right. It's doable. Pat, tell our listeners who haven't watched the the end of the webinar what's the best way. To learn more about the work you're doing and to follow along the west website is the best place to go Greenlee dot or G R E E N E A, S dot or it lays out all of all that history. Robert greenleaf that we talked about it lays out programs in our offerings in ways that you can get we're on all the social media platforms as well accurately center on Facebook and Twitter Greenlee center servant leadership. Only Pat, thanks for coming on the show. And thanks for the work. You're doing thank you so much for having me spent fun. Hi, my name's Pat philatic. Oh, and the CEO the Greenlee center for servant leadership. The green league Senate was founded in nineteen sixty or by Robert k Greenlee after a long career at AT and T the center was founded as the center for. Ethics over the course of his career Greenlee understood uniquely what it took for leaders to lead in ethical way and consistent with a manner, which you develop people to be their best. He coined the phrase servant leadership in nineteen seventy in his seminal essay the servant is leader. When we observed the Hager's of Leo, the main the main member of the tribe that took a mystical journey and what he understood about Leo's. Character was secret to his greatness is that he was really perceived a servant. I the one who was investing in the best of those that he was leading on this expedition. In nineteen seventy the modern movement servant leadership was born with that very first essay. And what I hope to do today is to take you through the jury. I don't know about you. But when I got my very first management job. It wasn't because I had some very strong leadership skills. It was because I was pretty much the best on the team, and my management thought it would be really good for me to lead the rest of the team to achieve the same out on site was able to I learned by very hard work that leading doing two different things and managing and leading. Or absolutely two different things over the course of my career like many of you. I was able to earn lots of promotions running bigger and bigger pieces of the organization more and more people within my realm of influence, climbing the corporate ladder, absolutely bigger choice of business. It was great to take on the challenges that the company had entrusted. On me, more and more people, but busy working on the business. Not as often as being connected to the people. You see the gatekeeper who who kept the people at bay to make sure that I had the time to get my work done, and it continued at you continue to climb the corporate ladder until finally you can't crowned king or perhaps just nearly the CEO along my journey craps along your journey you echoed the refrain that it's all about the people. In fact, this image of the inverted pyramid was something that I learned from Carol tomatoes, our on depot, which when he described the culture of the Home Depot has being an inverted pyramid. Where every level of leadership supported the next all the way out the associates, but one thing I have found over the history of my career is that at times while we believed it was. It's all about the people. We didn't away limit. It was often about the objectives of the organization in how we were going to serve the shareholder. We sometimes forget that the people who actually do the work of any institution of those on front line. And they those of us who are in leadership have singular responsibility of enabling then to be the best. They can be. So that together in teams, we produce the work of the organization, and that that organization bribes in all the aspects of business outcome that they have set their vision in vision for. So what is servant leadership then serving leader believes that in order to succeed you must

"Nineteen fifties. Kansas City was in many ways, the quintessential American city embodying the fifties virtues of hard work, faith, and family and no family in body. Those virtues more than the Greenlees clan. Robert C Greenlees the family patriarch came from a Missouri farming family born in eighteen eighty two he was not a well known name in town at the beginning of his life. But by nineteen eighteen he hit built his own Cadillac dealership in downtown Kansas City, the business found huge success in Robert grew it over the years to include dealerships throughout the mid west. He eventually became a major investor in General Motors, and by the nineteen fifties was estimated to be worth twenty four million dollars accounting for inflation. That would be roughly two hundred and fifty million in modern currency, his wealth was. Legendary even outside of Kansas City, and in the naievety of an innocent town in a more innocent time, the green leaves family never considered the degree to which their wealth might make them a target for criminals. Robert and his first wife Betty had no biological children. But they adopted Paul green. Lease who was born in nineteen seventeen. Robert's marriage to Betty ended in divorce and in nineteen thirty nine Robert married. Again, this time to Virginia Pollock green. Lease their first child Virginia sue was born in nineteen forty one six years later in nineteen forty seven Bobby Greenlees was born he was raised in total luxury the family had servants went on European vacations and gave Bobby anything he wanted. This included a pet parrot two dogs and his own mini Cadillac to drive around the block. It was an upbringing that led Bobby to never question the world and gave him no reason not to trust the people in it by nineteen fifty three. It had never crossed the families mind that the sweet. Heat six year old boy who played in the yard with his dogs and said all of his prayers every day could ever be in danger. Bobby had been playing in the backyard by the stream all afternoon having gotten home from school early. He liked to lift up the large white slabs of stone on the riverbank and look at the insects underneath he really wanted to take off his shoes. And Wade in the stream he knew there were some small fish in maybe crawdads, but mama wouldn't be happy. And Bobby knew God was watching Bobby jumped up from the riverbank. He looked over toward the house where a Birch tree was shedding bark and feathers skipping over the river Bank toward the house. He found what had happened at the foot of the tree a bird had flown into the tree falling into the grass below its head was turned at an odd angle. And it called out sadly repeatedly finally it stopped moving its eyes glazed over it was dead. Bobby? Stomach turned, but his heart hurt to his eyes welled up. He quickly got to his knees. Clasps his hands and began to pray. Lord. Let me not seek as much to be consoled as to console for. It is in giving that one receives it is in pardoning that one is pardon, and it is in dying that one is raised to turn a life. Bobby opened his eyes wincing as he looked up at the overcast, but bright sky his father appeared above him. Frowning Robert lean down next to Bobby about to place his hand on the six year old shoulder. He pulled back at the last moment apparently unsure of himself, but Bobby wasn't. And he threw himself at his father hugging him Robert relented returning the hug. The green leases were a close knit family, and as mentioned previously they were devout Catholics. Indeed. Even today their name, still adorns various Catholic institutions throughout Kansas City such as the green lease library at Rockhurst university. This belief system largely informed the family's world view. The pope was Christ's Representative on earth, the priests who served in the church carry out his and therefore God's will. And for Bobby the nuns at his school Notre Dame deci on, we're also representatives of the Lord. And thus commanded his obedience. This was nineteen fifty three before the second..

"Though, not much is known of Carl hall and Bonnie head early years will attempt to understand their transition from troubled misfits to child abductors next week in part two will learn of the bizarre negotiations process in which the kidnappers gave confusing instructions we'll explore the FBI investigation into the kidnapping and the media frenzy that resulted from the crime. In order to understand the motivations of Bobby green, Lisa's kidnappers. Carl hall and Bonnie Hetty it's important to travel back in time and explore their formative years. Born in nineteen nineteen Carl Austin hall was the son of John Austin hall and zealous e hall Carl grew up in the small town of Pleasanton, Kansas where his father was a well known attorney in nineteen thirty two Carl hall was thirteen year old boy about to begin high school. This was the year of the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping in which the infant son of the famed aviator was taken from his home and later killed the one Bruno Richard help men would later be arrested for the crime speculation persists to this day as to the true culprit, it's a crime that young Carl hall would have almost certainly been aware of and that would perhaps remain in his subconscious for years. Years to come John Hall Carl's father passed away that same year leading to Carl's mother zella enrolling him at the Kemper military school in September nineteen thirty three located in Boone Ville, Missouri. It was a regional fixture training. Young men for service in the armed forces since the late eighteen hundreds Kemper also hosted problem students who had blown their chances at previous institutions by nineteen thirty three Paul Greenlees was one such student the adopted son of Robert C Greenlees the wealthiest auto dealer west of the Mississippi he had rebelled throughout his youth. Paul green lease and Carl hall were at Kemper together for at least a year when Carl was fourteen and Paul was sixteen. Neither could have predicted that in twenty years time Carl would kidnap Paul's younger half, brother. Bobby Carl hall was by most. Counts a strong student. He performed his duties with vigor and excelled in his coursework. It's hard to imagine that Carl didn't feel some resentment toward Paul Greenlees. Carl didn't come from nothing. His father had been a successful. And well known lawyer in Pleasanton, but that was a small town, especially when compared to Kansas City, Missouri. Where Paul grew up in. Well, Carl's family was well off Paul's family was endlessly wealthy Paul's parents visited in a dark blue Cadillac Coral's mother showed up in a Buick Paul had Christmas at Union Station with all the cutest gals. Carl just went home to his mom and so Carl the good student from good family paled in comparison to Paul the problem student from the exceptional family. Kemper students would sneak out whenever they could finding a local bar or a good spot in the woods. It was normal to see who could drink the most some of the country. Boys would bring up some moonshine from their family homes in the Ozarks. Some of the boys could drink this much. And still excel in school. Carl hall wasn't one of them. His mother zella had never allowed any alcohol around the house and it hit him like a deer kick to the face. But when he was drunk. He forgot about school forgot about his strict parents at home forgot about Paul Greenlees by nineteen thirty six seventeen year old Carl hall got to wear a needed a drink to get through the day. Just a few years ago. He had been a small town boy who only drank alcohol when he could find it Carl school records shows a history of positive and complimentary comments in one thousand nine hundred eighty three and nineteen thirty. Four but by nineteen thirty six instructors began to refer to Carl in their reports as untrustworthy and rebellious in that same year school records show that Karl hall had taken ill an attempted to acquire alcohol while in the infirmary reading between the lines. It would seem that Carl had at the very least developed an alcohol problem something school faculty were ill equipped to diagnose entreat. It's difficult to know the exact origin of Carl halls intense alcoholism, the final F B I file on the kidnapping makes no mention of any kind of psychiatric evaluation of the suspect and genetic makeup is of course, unavailable considering the timeframe of the crime and general obscurity of the culprit, but it's clear that alcoholism dogged him for the rest of his life in nineteen forty two..
