Trammell led our team in the development of 14 modules designed with an interactive approach to teaching servant leadership. These modules are now being used internationally. In 1996, he partnered with TDIndustries in developing a new curriculum for the AMCA servant leadership classes that was later used in the TDIndustries Innovative Whole-Brained Learning Environment for Servant Leaderhsip, including materials translated into Spanish One of his favorite AMCA, Inc. publications is Awakening Your Sleeping Genius: A Journaling Approach to Personal Growth and Servant Leadership. Trammell participated in Ann McGee-Cooper’s early research on “genius/giftedness” and combined it with Robert Greenleaf’s concepts on servant leadership to produce the journal. Duane’s expertise in leadership also expands into the community. For five years, he directed a Leadership Institute which placed over 150 volunteers into the Dallas community in collaborations such has health fairs, environmental clean ups, and food/clothing drives for the needy.
