I Serve You, You Serve the Consumer -Servant Leader

I Serve You, You Serve the Consumer -Servant Leader | Building Servant Leadership | Scoop.it
Today, most CEOs say they serve investors. But this simple model, is more appropriate: I serve you, you serve consumers. Does your leadership understand this?
Mark Haas's insight:

Maximizing shareholder wealth has been a passing trend (before the Dodge Brothers court case started this distraction a century ago, shareholder wealth was not even part of what a corporation stood for) we are well along in getting back to focusing on who a business generates value for, all its stakeholders - employees, customers, community, and, yes, equity holders.

5 Reasons Why Servant Leadership Works

5 Reasons Why Servant Leadership Works | Building Servant Leadership | Scoop.it

To be a servant leader requires that you let go of self-importance.

 

I have worked in my field for twenty eight years. I have served as a leader and have served under a number of leaders during that time. Some have been good while some have not.

 

Good, healthy leadership is out there but you have to look for it. I have learned just as much from the mistakes of those around me, as well as my own, as I have from the successes.

 

I have also had the privilege of working for some incredible servant leaders as well. One in particular I served with for almost ten years and to this day he is one of my closest friends.

 

He showed me what a servant leader looks like and has had a profound impact on my life. So I can tell you from experience that these five principles work.
