Servant Leadership, a values and relational based approach to leadership seeks to create a high trust culture by turning “the bosses” into “the coaches,” ”the head-honchos” into “the mentors,” “the brass” into “the colleagues” and “the critics” into “the cheerleaders.”

Servant Leadership involves identifying and meeting the legitimate needs (as opposed to wants) of those entrusted to the care of the leader. It involves getting people involved from the “neck up” by not merely contributing their “hands and backs” but also volunteering their “hearts and minds.” It is a model of developing leaders of character who lead with authority (influence) rather than simply relying upon power (coercion).
