"Servant leadership is demonstrated through empowerment and the development of people; by expressing humility, authenticity, interpersonal acceptance, and stewardship; and by providing direction."

John Michel's curator insight, June 6, 11:09 PM

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

But writing a check is easy. Breathing love into an organization is an entirely different proposition.

Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, November 20, 3:13 AM

"Intuition dictates that people should be willing to give up some money to avoid the distress of hurting someone. But despite decades of research, the effect had not previously been demonstrated. It may be possible to tap into this altruism simply by reminding people in positions of power—from chefs to politicians—of the painful consequences of their decision to cut corners."
