Considering the research findings that consistently indicate that happy workers = greater productivity = increased profitability, it‘s important business leaders learn key lessons about working well with their people – and leading them properly.

Before all else, modern day leaders need to think ‘leadership.’  What does it mean to them and how can they do it better?  Because the only real weapon they have against the opposition, is their people!

Servant Leadership is putting your people first.  Making sure that every day you walk into the Organisation as its leader, you ask your people what they need and how you can help them.  Then do so.

Robert Greenleaf,  founder of the Greenleaf Institute, first identified the modern-day version of Servant leadership. In short, a servant leader is one who promotes the well-being of those around them, using ten guiding principles (such as listening, empathy and healing) to do so.

The aim of Servant Leaders in Organisations is to treat their people with respect and dignity by building relationships with them based on common collaborative principles, not power.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you help your people heal when they are struggling?
  • Do you sit and listen to them and show interest in their lives?
  • Do you focus on training and developing them at every opportunity?
  • How aware are you about what is going on both within your Company and outside of it?

Servant Leadership is the modern-day model of a spiritual way of leading.  Learn more about it.
