When you become a servant leader, it requires you to focus your attention away from yourself and put the spotlight on your employees, growing and empowering them first. Robert K. Greenleaf, observe that these leaders got the best out of their employees; they were more motivated, inspired, creative, and productive, and that led to great business results. It's the foundational attitude of leadership; it's not about you; it's all about the people you serve.
Successful companies known for having high trust, high employee engagement, and low turnover, according to Marcel Schwantes, are guided by visionary executives and founders who walk the talk of servant leadership. The command-and-control leadership structures of the past 20th century are dead, and if you want to build and sustain a great company in this 21st century, you must be willing to serve first.
