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
Servant leadership begins with deep self-awareness — work- ing from the inside out, having a healthy and ac- curate sense of self and of your values, strengths, development areas, moti- vations 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 em- ployees your undivided attention, hold back your own thoughts and listen thoroughly — then reflect back what you have heard, confirming accura- cy 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 suc- cessful interpersonal relationships.
Establish, build and nur- ture long-lasting, mutual- ly rewarding relation- ships. Connect with others to integrate solu- tions and achieve results that benefit all.
Fuel creativity and curi- osity, and work on being resourceful and resilient to uncover an- swers, sources and solutions in a proactive and strategic manner.
Mentor, coach and develop
Always look for opportu- nities 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.
