A servant leader looks to the needs of the people and asks himself how he can help them to solve problems and promote personal development. He places his main focus on people, because only content and motivated people are able to reach their targets and to fulfill the set expectations.
“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.” Greenleaf, Servant Leadership, 1977.
Servant-leaders achieve results for their organizations by giving priority attention to the needs of their colleagues and those they serve. Servant-leaders are often seen as humble stewards of their organization\'s resources (human, financial and physical).
Servant Leadership is not a concept or a principle. It is an inner standard of living.
Some may suggest that servant leaders are weak. However, nothing could be further from the truth. They model integrity, where their thoughts, words and actions flow from a consistent desire.
Servant leaders are not leaders on the basis of their position or leadership role, but rather lead according to their calling, vision and principles.
Greenleaf got the idea for Servant Leadership after reading Herman Hesse’sJourney to the East.
Jesus Christ is often referenced as the perfect model of servant leadership.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:3-8
