As the Founder and CEO of SLI, Art Barter knows a thing or two about the “serve first” mentality.

It all started with his company, Datron World Communications.  After purchasing it back in 2004, he transformed the $10 million company into a $200 million company in just 6 years. In late 2016, Datron received it's largest contract to date of $495 million. Art believes this success is due to the implementation of SL across the organization.

Art is so passionate about SL that he has written a number of books that can help you on your leadership journey.

By integrating the SL paradigm into their inner lives and professional thinking, today’s leaders can revolutionize heartless corporate strategies that reward the few at the expense of the many.

Today, Datron World Communications is a multimillion-dollar, multicultural, international company with customers in more than eighty countries. That success is the result of the lessons taught in The Art of Servant Leadership II and proof that serving others with compassion and humility brings unprecedented rewards.
