In 2001, I wrote an article for the American Marketing Association’s chapter newsletter on this concept. A good friend of mine at the AMA bought into this version of Leadership, and asked me to author a short piece. For the purpose of this blog, I’ll limit the read to what we find at RMD Advertising to be the top three reasons for adopting a servant leadership style. We hope this practice inspires you as well to be a more caring leader. In the end, I think you’ll find it makes you stronger, as well.
Servant Leadership …
1. Provides an ongoing purpose to life, and to work as an essential element to a life well-lived.
2. Puts first things first: People (not you)
3. Makes sense of business and ethical behavior, when clarity is most needed.
In short, if we all live a life whereby we focus on OTHERS more than ourselves, there is opportunity everywhere — as an entire team can serve you and your organization far more abundantly than you could possibly serve up yourself.
