The SERVANT™ Leader is…
Selfless: If you’re not serving others, you are self-serving and that is not leadership.
Empathetic: The servant leader understands what it’s like to walk a mile in the muddy boots of their stakeholders.
Resolute: Like shelter in a storm, the servant leader’s unwavering commitment to the mission is assurance to the team.
Virtuous: How you achieve results is as important as what results you achieve.
Authentic: The servant leader is the same person at work, home, and in the community.
Nonpartisan: An open mind produces but a closed mind is useless. So a servant leader is open to new ideas from anyone and anywhere.
Thorough: A great servant leader goes wide and deep – they never borrow results from tomorrow to make today look good.
The SERVANT™ Leader cannot be one or two things to a select group. No, a SERVANT™ leader must serve all their stakeholders.
