"Ours are revolutionary times. No so much for the extent of turbulence and disruption as because of the emergence of a significant number of thoughtful and aware people who see more clearly the world as it is and are not satisfied with it.”
– Robert Greenleaf
LEADERSHIP IS BIGGER THAN EXPERTISE
AND IT CANNOT BE REDUCED TO STYLE
Servant leadership is not, fundamentally, about caring for the sake of caring. You're influence will never be transformative if your only objective is to 'make a positive impact on others.'
Servant leadership has purpose at its core. According to Robert Greenleaf, who coined the term for the modern era, it is for those whose integrity requires them to be inventive and venturesome, to risk the initiative to find better ways and to do the hard and sometimes dangerous work that brings the impossible to reality.
