Executive Summary. Since the “servant leadership” concept was introduced by Robert K. Greenleaf in 1970, this style has been adopted by many successful leaders in a variety of contexts. Is the servant leadership style right for you? This article helps to answer that question for many leaders who may be interested in “serving others first,” or in “serving rather than being served,” by exploring whether or not a leader has the necessary attitudes to implement this leadership style. According to the authors, servant leadership can be a highly effective style for influencing a group toward the achievement of organizational goals if a leader possesses or can readily adopt the following attitudes: 1) believing that visioning isn’t everything, but it’s the beginning of everything, 2) listening is hard work requiring a major investment of personal time and effort – and it is worth every ounce of energy expended, 3) my job involves being a talent scout and committing to my staff’s success, 4) it is good to give away my power, and 5) I am a community builder.
