Transformational leadership vs Servant leadership

After reading about transformational theory and servant theory, I can't help but notice how similar they are. For example, they share many attributes such as:

Influence, Vision, Trust, Integrity, Individualized consideration, mentoring, empowerment, etc.

In essence, the only real difference between the two is their slight variation in focus. Servant leadership emphasises more on followers, while transformational leadership focuses on organizational goals.

However, one must question whether this is a strong enough reason to make a distinction between the two approaches. Why can't organizations have both objectives, i.e. to improve performance and develop employees? Indeed, many progressive companies try to simultaneously do both. In my opinion, that is probably the only real way an organization can achieve and sustain success.
