Programmes Summary and Objectives

The servant leader is servant first…It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions… The leader first and the servant first are two extreme types, between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature

Robert K. Greenleaf

As a leader, what view of the world are you operating from? Can you influence others to enlist in that perspective and cause it to happen? Every successful leader from Mother Teresa, Mahatma Ghandi, Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and HH: The Dalai Lama share/d one common thing and that is the spirit of servant leadership.

Servant leadership is not about a personal quest for power, prestige, or material rewards.

Instead, from this perspective, leadership begins with a true motivation to serve others. Rather than controlling or wielding power, the servant leader works to build a solid foundation or shared goals by:-

  • Listening deeply to understand the needs and concerns of others.
  • Working thoughtfully to help build a creative consensus and
  • Honoring the paradox of polarized parties and working to create "third right answers" that rise above the compromise of "we/they" negotiations

The focus on Servant leadership is on sharing information, building a common vision, self-management, high levels of interdependence, learning from mistakes, encouraging creative input from every team member and questioning present assumptions and mental models.

Principle Centered Leadership and Servant Leadership.

There are three constants in life…Change, Choice and Principles; if you focus on principles, you empower everyone who understands those principles to act without constant monitoring, evaluating, correcting or controlling.

Stephen R. Covey
