What is Servant Leadership?


A philosophy that turns the traditional model of leadership upside down and teaches leaders how to serve the people they lead- inspiring and equipping those we influence. This smarter approach replaces the command and control models of leadership to better focus on the needs of others and helps organizations become more profitable, people-oriented, and sustainable.
