Servant leadership is ancient, and never more important today
The term “servant leader” seems to becoming more and more popular in my workplace in the last couple of years. It’s a good thing to. It may actually be the only form of true leadership.
But I was curious about the term “servant leader” itself. I appreciated wikipedia’s article that says it is an ancient philosophy and is found in many religious texts, of which I would like to add one of the best pieces about servant leadership given by a king about 124 BC found in the Book of Mormon. Yet, the term is credited in modern time to Robert Greenleaf and his 1970 essay.
As a parent, never lose focus on who you serve. You don’t serve your possessions, your professional career or any other temporary thing. You serve your family.
