What About 'Servant Leadership'?
Uses their influence for the good of othersand #7:
Serves others expecting nothing in return.I read those and I wondered why there was a rest of the list.
I recently enjoyed a meal with a good friend that is a retired military commander and now teaches ROTC to high school students. He told me that the hardest thing he has to teach is that leadership is not about the leader - that it is about serving the organization, and the members thereof.
Christ served us even unto death - think about that for a minute.
Things are not about us. In recent times I have had a number of customer service problems with people I deal with. When I confronted them, they were not concerned about my problem or how they represented their company - only about their own hides.
There is something deeply wrong in our nation. There is a reason people "Serve" in positions of authority.
