Examples of Servant Leadership in Business | Is Your Organization Providing Servant Leadership?
What are examples of servant leadership in business? It is a paradigm shift in traditional “Top Down” leadership and it could literally change the United States, if not the world. Servant Leadership is described by James L. Davis, President World Leaders Group, this way:
“In business, church, and political environments, people are looking for leaders they can look up to, who lead by first serving, who care about people – not just the bottom line – and who understand the importance of leading with integrity. That is the heart of servant leadership…”. Read the article in it’s entirety here: Of Servant Leadership by Carolyn DiPaolo
One of the major points in the article which really struck a nerve with me, and why I think this kind of leadership can really change the world, is the recommendation that organizations change their organization structure from a “top down” organizational structure to a “bottom up” organizational structure, where customer facing personnel and the customers drive the organization’s direction.
Unfortunately, traditional organizational structure drives the egos of CEO’s, President’s, and Business Owners, and doesn’t take in to account customer needs. This has to change. Think about it, most charitable organizations think this way, but businesses generally do not. Most U.S. businesses are driven by “wealth creation”, not for the customer, but for the Owner, CEO, or share holders. This has fostered an economy based on greed, not servitude to our fellow man.
The founders of the Empower Network, and the founder of Team Tissa, are the absolute definition of “Servant Leadership”. They painstakingly go out of their way to help others before helping themselves. This is the value of having a Servant Leader and why you should commit to being a “Servant Leader” to your organization.
