What is a leader? What makes a leader powerful?
Conventional leadership holds a commitment to the success of the leader himself regardless of the growth, status, or well-being of anyone else around him or under his leadership. This conventional me-first type of leader will sacrifice others to get ahead. Is this the type of leader we would want to follow? Is this the type of leader we want to become?
A Servant leader, on the other hand, may not be what comes to mind when we think in terms of leadership development. The term servant leadership is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms. How can one be a leader if he is a servant? How can one who serves really lead? The servant leader, however, is much more powerful than you think.
