Quotes on Servant Leadership and Servanthood
Richard S. Dillard, Business Consultant, United States

Here are some good quoatations I collected on servant leadership:
- To manage, one must lead. To lead, one must understand the work [and the people] that he and his [team] are responsible for. – Deming [Out of the crisis]
- To understand the work/ people that he and his team are responsible for, one must serve. – Jesus Christ [Mark, Chapter 10, vv. 43 and 44]
- To serve, one must follow. – Jesus Christ [John 12:26]
- Right leadership – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind…
- Effective leadership – “…and love your neighbor as yourself.” – Jesus Christ [Luke 10:27]
- There are no self-appointed leaders; “leader” is a title given only by those who choose to follow.
- Every leader cares enough about the impact they are having on others to continually renew and improve it.
- Leadership bears no relationship to position / title / rank.
- Leaders are born and made.
- Everyone has equal born-in leadership potential; not everyone realizes that potential through made-in human performance.

Servant Leadership and Ethical Considerations Paramount
dawson, Student (University), New Zealand
Richard you of course are quite right using Jesus as a prime example of effective, humble servant leadership. If you are promoting any ethical service, product or system the idea of profit must remain secondary as motivation, but will surely follow if all ethical considerations are taken heed of.

Servanthood to Success Leadership
Brian Mitchell, Partner, United States
Richard, your quotes are good ones on the surface and all can be taken to a deeper level that help illuminate simple ideas to often encourage, inspire and motivate people. Of course, Jesus was the greatest example of servant leadership of all time, given the nature of his existence and the effect it has had on the entire planet.
