Needed! Servant Leaders for the Corporate World
Rajiv Prasad
Too often we see corporates turning to the "new buzz" in corporate management concepts almost like cows in a herd.
Hence, we see a lot of concepts such as servant leadership being adapted to suit the corporate strategy whilst at the same time keeping parameters of age-old concepts such as viewing organisations as "well-oiled machines" where each brick fits in the wall (or is made to fit or thrown out as the case may be).
Servant leadership by its very essence suggests that leaders and people who are in powers of authority need to tone down on the concept of scorecards being the final verdict in judging employee performance. SL instead suggests to aspiring participants to keep in mind the key metrics while adopting the more humble and consultative approach to enriching the experience of the internal clients - being the employees under the participant's authority.
