With servant leadership, a leader's primary role is to serve employees. Everyone from Lao-Tzu to Max De Pree thinks this a wonderful model. Why then, asks Professor Jim Heskett , is this style so rare among CEOs?
Thanks to Anthony Howard for finding this one. Over the years I have had the fortune to have a number of 'servant leaders' as clients. One common challnege they all faced, no matter how successful they were was the ire of other leaders who weren't prepared to acknowledge the value of 'servant leadership' in a number of cases they even said to me, they thought so and so was a 'bit weak' or a 'push over'. Being a servant leaders requires you to be present and attentive to all that is happening or about to happen around you. You don't have to be 'soft' to care, you just have to be prepared to put yourself in the other person's shoes from time to time and attempt to see a situation from the other point of view before you perhaps disagree. Otherwise it is 'status leadership' which can lead to tyranny. You have to work at 'servant leadership' every moment of every day but the rewards keep on giving. It is worth it. Great article.
