When people lead at a higher level, they make the world a better place, because their goals are focused on the greater good. Making the world a better place requires a special kind of leader: a servant leader.
Robert Greenleaf first coined the term “servant leadership” in 1970 and published widely on the concept for the next 20 years. Yet it is an old concept. Two thousand years ago, servant leadership was central to the philosophy of Jesus, who exemplified the fully committed and effective servant leader. Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela are more recent examples of leaders who have exemplified this philosophy.
