Servant Leadership

In the last byte, we attempted to understand some of the differences in women leaders and men leaders, we also hinted a bit on the need to study it further. In today's byte, we look at the concept of Servant Leadership.

Servant leadership assists from the thought that leaders should serve employees, customers and the community!

Developed by Robert Greenleaf (1904-1990), who was the director of management research at AT&T for numerous years, the concept emerged out of his essays.
Another tenet of servant leadership is that work exists for the person as much as the person exists for work - servant leaders try to find out the will of the group and lead based on that.
Servant leaders could thus be seen as stewards who consider leadership a trust and desire to leave the organization in better shape for future generation!
