Servant Leadership 

Did you know that the philosophy of servant leadership is an ancient one? There are passages related to servant leadership in the Tao Te Ching, attributed to Lao-Tzu, who is believed to have lived in China sometime between 570 BCE and 490 BCE.

The actual term “servant leadership” was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in “The Servant as Leader,” an essay first published in 1970. He recognized that organizations as well as individuals could be servant leaders, and he felt strongly that servant-leader organizations could change the world.

Servant leadership is both a leadership philosophy and set of leadership practices. Traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid.” By comparison, the servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. Servant leadership turns the power pyramid upside down; instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people. When leaders shift their mindset and serve first, they unlock purpose and ingenuity in those around them, which usually will result in higher performance and engaged, fulfilled employees. A servant leader's purpose should be to inspire and equip the people he or she influences.

Most people would view the servant as leader as a real contradiction. The servant-leader is one who wants to be a servant first and then makes a conscious choice to lead. This is quite different from one who is a leader first because of a strong drive for power or to gain material possessions. The difference lies in the ability of the servant leader to make sure the needs of others are being served.

In this presentation, Ed will describe examples from his personal experience of the two leadership styles and the resulting outcomes.
