Welcome back to Season 1, Episode 10 of the Convene Podcast. What does it mean to be a servant leader? And why does it matter? How can it make a difference in the way you live your day-to-day life as a leader? How can it transform the lives of others? As the owner and Cultural Architect of Datron World Communications, Inc., Art Barter turned a $10 million company into a $200 million dollar company in just six years.
The success was born out of his desire to transform a traditional system of leadership into a servant-led organization. As an active speaker, Art tells Datron’s riveting story of moving from severe adversity to a significant organization committed to leading for the sake of others. He believes that how you get results is more important than the results themselves.
Art has presented the servant leadership message to a variety of corporate, government, and nonprofit audiences throughout the U.S. Prior to joining Datron in 1997, he spent eight years working with the Disney Corporation and more than 25 years at manufacturing companies. He is the Founder, CEO, and President of Servant Leadership Institute (SLI) in Carlsbad, California.
