How to become a Servant Leader

  1. Be a good listener. Try to determine what the desire of the group or individuals are. 
  2. Practice empathy. Empathy allows you to get past surface issues and to discover what is going on.
  3. Embrace concepts of healing. The servant leader recognizes the brokenness of people and looks for ways to make broken people well.
  4. Be aware of the obvious and the subtle, both in your own life and in other’s lives.
  5. Be persuasive. Use the power of persuasion to help people choose the right path as needed instead of demanding the path.
  6. Be able to conceptualize. Servant leaders are big-picture thinkers, thinking of what their team needs to do to accomplish everything, not just the one thing in front of them.
  7. Be a good steward. A steward is someone who holds onto something and keeps it in good condition for others who need it down the road.
  8. Love the community.

Servant Leadership Work

Studies have shown that servant leadership and the empowerment and teamwork that accompay it trickle down. Higher level managers who turn from selfish leadership to selfless leadership end up creating lower-level managers and other employees who then do the same.

Servant Leader

A servant leader is someone who serves others first, before anything else. 

Traditional leadership tends to be about systems and structures that make repetitive work and authority a foundation. 
Servant leadership, on the other hand, tends to be about people.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
