Servant leadership is all about enriching the lives of others, building better organizations and ultimately creating a world that is more caring and equitable. Not only is it personally rewarding, but it makes a difference in others’ lives.
Giving back and paying it forward is a way to add value and leverage one’s talents and experiences while making a difference and having an impact. When you describe your corporate culture, is being of service to one another and the community a Core Value? Do your actions display service as a cornerstone to how you do business?
EIGHT PRACTICES TO CREATE A CULTURE OF SERVANT LEADERSHIP
Find your inner strength
Servant leadership begins with deep self-awareness — working from the inside out, having a healthy and accurate sense of self and of your values, strengths, development areas, motivations, and aspirations.
Exhibiting compassion builds an environment of trust. Employees need to know their managers care and want to feel valued, appreciated and acknowledged for their contributions.
Practice active listening
Suspend judgement or assumptions, give employees your undivided attention, hold back your own thoughts and listen thoroughly — then reflect back what you have heard, confirming accuracy of comprehension.
Develop emotional intelligence
EQ is our ability to identify and manage emotional information in oneself and others. It reinforces empathy and helps build successful interpersonal relationships.
Establish, build and nurture long-lasting, mutually rewarding relationships. Connect with others to integrate solutions and achieve results that benefit all.
Fuel creativity and curiosity, and work on being resourceful and resilient to uncover answers, sources and solutions in a proactive and strategic manner.
Mentor, coach, and develop
Always look for opportunities to take interest and invest in others’ growth and development.
Remain open-minded to new opportunities, new situations and new people, as well as to learning new things, new environments and unexpected directions or paths.
