“Great leaders believe they work for their team, average leaders believe their team works for them.” — Alexander Den Heijer.
Robert Greenleaf, founder of the modern servant leadership movement, describes a servant leadership mindset as one that begins with the desire to serve by meeting the needs of others. To embrace the spirit of servant leadership, you must first change your mindset and focus on providing service to others. Mahatma Gandhi once stated, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Being a leader means that you have been placed in a position to serve others; it has nothing to do with you. Leaders are accountable for the success and livelihoods of dozens, hundreds, and or thousands of people. They should never forget this fact and never act in a cavalier fashion. Their decisions, actions, and how they carry themselves impact a large and diverse community.
According to Warren Bennis, always remember that leadership is a privilege. When you’re in a leadership role, your influence may impact the trajectory of peoples’ entire careers (and often life!).
