We’ve all either seen or heard about this guy before. He’s the loser sitting in his car at a traffic signal waiting for the light to turn green.

By Ernie Heavin

The Servant Leader is a servant first. It is not about being servile, it is about wanting to help others and to see them succeed. By comparison, the traditional leadership style generally involves more of a self-centered, dictatorship mindset. Whether it has to do with leading a church, running a business or overseeing a nonprofit organization, the traditional management style can be quite counterproductive. Here’s an illustration of what it is like to work under the self-absorbed self-serving leadership style or administration:

We’ve all either seen or heard about this guy before. He’s the loser sitting in his car at a traffic signal waiting for the light to turn green. The guy sees a very attractive lady crossing the street and just when she is about to walk in front of his car he starts honking the horn, whistling and yelling out the window, “Hey baby! Looking hot!” The woman either ignores him or gives a harsh glare and crosses the street completely annoyed. Now here’s the interesting part; this guy hasn’t figured out why he can’t ever win the girl. And this is the best idea he’s come up with so far. This illustrates the relationship between the self-serving leadership style and those unfortunate to work under him or her. The management keeps yelling and honking their horns at the employees by not showing any appreciation, ignoring suggestions and concerns, not offering opportunities for advancement or training, being demeaning and here’s the interesting part; they scratch their heads wondering why they can’t get more loyalty and productivity from the employee…………and this is the best idea they have come up with so far. And when the employee sees no hope or future in the company, customer service suffers as well.

The Servant Leader puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. Servant Leadership values different opinions, cultivates a culture of trust, encourages, trains others to train others, exhibits humility and shows genuine concern for those they lead. Servant Leadership places emphasis on four core areas of the culture for the business world.

1. Servant Leadership is about developing hope: Giving people something greater than the problems they face, a Strong Vision for life.

2. Servant Leadership is about developing mentally: Helping people think differently about addressing employment and personal issues regarding the choices they make.

3. Servant Leadership is about developing morally: It’s not merely about WHAT we choose to do or not to do, but also the WHY. Motivation makes an incredible difference.

4. Servant Leadership is about developing socially: We cannot change others, but your transformation in how you treat others just might be the catalyst that helps change others.

So, who would you rather have managing your people, business or organizations, a Servant Leader or someone who annoys your employees by constantly honking the horn?

I can relate to this very well. I have been fortunate to work under great mentors and idiotic slobs. Both taught me lessons on how to lead.
