Servant leadership, pioneered by Robert Greenleaf, is an important element of sustained leadership. Knowing how to serve the team makes you more effective at motivating, encouraging, and helping them grow. Learn to distinguish wants from needs, remove obstacles the team faces, and facilitate the team’s work. Servant leaders provide the right environment, encouragement, challenges, growth, and development opportunities. When a sustained leader models servant leadership behaviours, they help each team member foster positive relationships and become the very best possible versions of themselves.
