Servant leadership is usually linked to Jesus and his service to others. However, you dont need to be religious to execute this serve first-lead after type of leadership. Something I find interesting about servant leaders it is their belief that they are in ther leadership role to benefit and support those they are in charged to lead, and it remainds me Paul's question of how can I help you?...It is about putting first the needs of someone else and letting aside your ego.
At the begining I though servant leadership was just an emotional thing, but I was wrong, servant leadership is about SERVE, which means:
See the future
Engage and develop others
Value results and relationships
Embody the values
So it is pretty much a balanced thing, there is vision, change, results, people and values, but to become a servant leader one needs to work in several characteristics...In my case, I will start by trying to be a better listener and be more open to others opinions.
