Servant leadership

Servant leadership is a term that often, as stated by Northouse, “seems contradictory and challenges our traditional beliefs about leadership” (2019, p. 227). The literal definition of a leader is to point the direction for others to follow, and for a servant to follow those they serve.

That said, servant leadership has become a key philosophy within leadership. In this discussion thread, assess how a leader can be both a leader and a servant at the same time, and present two specific strategies a person can follow to ensure they become a leader and a servant that influences others to follow.

Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting citations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. You may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such current scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.

Keep in mind that current scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search. Current research means published in the last five years.

You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
