Servant Leadership

Being a leader means that you are portraying a character that inspires others. It means putting yourself second, and extending yourself to meet the needs of others.

Servant Leader - One who is skilled at identifying and meeting the legitimate needs (as opposed to wants) of others and influencing them to fully contribute their resources towards beneficial goals, with character that inspires confidence.

Leadership is character in action. A true leader cannot exist without character. A person's character is defined by the choices they make and the habits they form. By showing self-control, making habits out of common courtesies, showing humility, treating people like they are important, being forgiving and honest, and being committed to doing the right thing, you will display a character that inspires other people.

Leaders are able to reach out to others and see things as others see them. The ability to work together to find a solution to a problem, rather than dictating it to others is a quality that leaders possess and put into practice continually. It often requires putting our own selfish wants and needs aside so that we may extend ourselves to others.

It is important to realize that there is a difference between management and leadership. Management is the stuff we do day-to-day. It means to direct or control, or to make submissive to one's authority, discipline or persuasion. You can't manage yourself into being a leader.

Good management got us here. Leadership will get us to the next level.
