- Leadership and Navigation
Servant Leadership is a powerful approach to achieving common goals in which the leader acts to serve those who are led. Servant Leadership happens when we act with respect, care, and fairness for the well-being of all involved, and not for our own self-serving interests. When we serve first and lead second, we help individuals and organizations achieve worthwhile results while keeping the best interest of those we serve before our own. It’s only when we realize that it’s not about us that we model Servant Leadership.
