Servant Leadership

Book Description

Leaders represent a necessary part of any organizational structure, and leadership styles can vary greatly between individuals. Servant leadership is one such leadership style which is helping individuals guide and encourage others within their organization. Servant Leadership: Research and Practice explores the concept of rethinking the leader-subordinate relationship structure through the dissolution of an authoritarian leadership style. This book supports current and future leaders through relevant discussions on methodologies and tools in support of servant leadership, and is designed for use by business managers, executives, scholars, and upper-level students.
