Servant Leadership in the Modern Workplace
About this Course:
Historically, world-over the autocratic leadership style influenced politics as well as workplaces. It gave power solely to managers to make decisions on their personal views and experience. However, with the onset of democracies and individual self-worth, inclusiveness became the gold standard for leadership. The standard command and control approach also failed with the entry of the millennials into the workforce. Onset of the 21st century was dominated by a lightning pace of technological changes, requiring the professional development of employees for organizational success. At the same time, exclusive focus on results made the workplace very transactional with digression from humanitarian values, leading to low morale. Eventually Leadership paradigms had to evolve to become more collaborative, people-oriented and selfless.
Servant leadership can seem like a contradicting term but it is the most promising and world-changing approach leaders can adopt in this new era of crisis, uncertainty and chaos. It is a revolutionary approach to leadership in which leaders aim to serve their employees rather than attain power and authority. Measuring your success based on the success of those whom you mentor in your workplace, can result in life-long professional relationships. It is when your team experiences genuine care, that they are willing to go to any extent to accomplish targets.
When you learn to lead with humility and commit yourself to the growth of others, you establish a positive organizational culture where everyone supports each other. Thus individual and organizational success align in a community, where self-interest gives way to collective human development. You will discover that the value of relationships outweighs the cost of building them. With our ground-breaking course on Servant Leadership workshop, participants will discover many more specifics of how servant leadership works and how it can benefit both leaders and employees. Thus by learning and exhibiting servant leadership traits, you can be at the apex of any leadership continuum.
