The world is made up of two kinds of people- people who are only focused on themselves and people who help others to grow as well as themselves. In the field of work, most often than not, we find our bosses to be falling under the first category. “Cause I said so”, “It’s my way or the highway” and similar phrases are generally expected from them.
If you have ever found your boss getting all the credit for your work (which you probably had done without any help from him/ her) during performance appraisal or promotions, you know what I am talking about. Persecuted like this over a period of time from the very beginning of your career, you need to ensure that your subordinates do not suffer the same when you reach that position. You need to be a servant leader. Before digging deep into how to become one, let us first understand what servant leadership is.
"The first and most important choice a leader makes is the choice to serve, without which one's capacity to lead is severely limited." -Robert Greenleaf
