- Be a good listener. Try to determine what the desire of the group or individuals are.
- Practice empathy. Empathy allows you to get past surface issues and to discover what is going on.
- Embrace concepts of healing. The servant leader recognizes the brokenness of people and looks for ways to make broken people well.
- Be aware of the obvious and the subtle, both in your own life and in other’s lives.
- Be persuasive. Use the power of persuasion to help people choose the right path as needed instead of demanding the path.
