Notes on Servant Leadership

A Leadership Style developed by Robert Greenleaf, "Servant leadership begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first.  Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead...The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant --first to make sure that other people's highest priority needs are being served.  The best test...is: do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become a servant?  And, what is the effect on the least Privileged in society; will they benefit or, at least, will they not be further deprived?"
