Servant Leadership Workshop_released 11/2016

servant-leadershop_1116The dictionary defines the word Servant as ‘a person who performs duties for others, especially a person employed in a house on domestic duties or as a personal attendant’ but as the saying goes the servant-leader is a servant first. While the idea of servant leadership goes back ages, many a great ones have practiced treating their servants as the same from sitting & eating with them to serving them.  The above was validated by the modern servant leadership movement launched in the recent past.
“The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature.”
From a corporate perspective, Servant leadership is a philosophy that involves focusing on others (i.e. your employees), and focus on their success, and in turn build better professional relationships that can benefit both manager and employee.  Servant leadership shows that managers can be great leaders while boosting their employee’s confidence and further their success at the same time. So why is Servant-Leadership not prevalent?
