Weaving Influence Leaders

Art Barter believes, as Martin Luther King profoundly said, “Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.” To teach people about the power of servant leadership, Art started in his own backyard by rebuilding the culture of the manufacturing company he bought in 2004, Datron World Communications. Art took Datron’s traditional power-led model and turned it upside down, and together with his management team, began to serve first. The result: a small international radio manufacturer grew from a $10 million company to a $200 million company in six years.

Fueled by his passion for servant leadership and the lessons learned from the implementation of Datron’s culture shift, Art created the Servant Leadership Institute (SLI) as a vehicle to share his knowledge and to teach others how to inspire and equip those they influence. At the company’s heart is a foundational curriculum covering 45 hours of training for every employee in the organization.

“Art Barter is one of the truly great servant leaders in the world. He genuinely models what he teaches.”

~ Stephen M. R. Covey, Author of ‘The Speed of Trust’
