Servant Leaders can Turn into Manipulators
Andrea Kelly
Humans are intrinsically selfish, power seekers. And even when one starts out to seek the welfare of others, sometimes in the end one turns out to be a manipulator.
It is the "pedagogue of the oppressed" (Paulo Freire). The oppressed normally turn around to become the oppressor.
I also believe that the end result has to do with the intent and motive of the individual. These are often difficult to discern. However sometimes servant leaders who may or may not be in positions of authority rise up to change a situation. This is divinely bestowed.
Learning to put others above self is something that we have to practise and desire to want to achieve.
