Leadership is hard. Servant leadership is harder.
Wise servant leaders know well that success almost always comes as result of impactful, effective, and efficient work done by TEAMS of capable and committed folks.
So, what do servant leaders need from those team members?
-Zealous pursuit of the organizational vision
-Learn, then teach others, on a continuous loop
-Ask consequential questions, then listen discerningly to the answers given
-Commit completely to continuous improvement
-Build bridges relentlessly, build walls only as anomalies
Notice that these elements are more about mindset, attitude, and disposition than they are about skills or knowledge.
Wise servant leaders are always on the hunt for folks who are willing and able to play by these rules.
