What Is Servant Leadership?

Servant Leadership is a philosophy and a set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, builds stronger teams and organizations, and ultimately creates a more caring and just world. Servant Leadership emphasizes trust-building, courage, compassion, and character, rather than only using positional power to lead and manage people. Many successful companies that are listed in Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” ascribe to both the principles and practices of Servant Leadership. These enterprises are proof that Servant Leadership is not only the right thing to do but a profitable one. Here are a few examples from the list: Starbucks, Zappos, Whole Foods Market, Marriott International, REI, Southwest Airlines, Men’s Wearhouse, Nordstrom, and Darden Restaurants (Olive Garden), just to name a few.

Principles + Practices = Results

“Every organization is perfectly designed to get the results it gets.”

These award-winning companies are known for extraordinary levels of service to their customers and clients. But their leadership team will tell you that their external results are connected to the internal culture that they intentionally cultivate with their managers, associates, and team members–Servant Leadership. High levels of customer engagement are connected to high levels of employee engagement. Gallup’s research has proven this to be true time and time again. Employee engagement flourishes because these management teams embrace both the principles and practices of Servant Leadership. Bottom line: Servant Leadership pays big dividends when it comes from an authentic and real desire to be of service to others first and foremost.
