Egalitarianism and Servant Leadership

This topic is so near and dear to me that I just wanted to share following tidbit with visitors.
Mr. Greenleaf referenced the bible numerous times in his dialogue while creating the Servant Leader theory. Yet, religion, church and education structures are contrary to the concept because they exist on a hierarchical structure versus a flat or shared platform.
The more ideal servant leadership reference, which is seldom evidenced or even spoke of is the concept of "Egalitarianism".
This relatively obscure body of work promotes that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or social status; therefore equality in life and economic, or business, should be on an equal playing field.
I strongly believe leadership is 100% about serving first and this exchange is a confirmation of such.
As much as we refer to Maslow's pyramid, the concept would serve us better if it were flipped upside-down, with the power looking up at the full range of responsibilities of a leader.
