Our world is currently in the midst of a leadership crisis. Exploitive and self-serving leadership has eroded our confidence resulting in wide-spread scandals, significant employee turnover, and inflated executive bonuses.
The term “servant leadership” is not an oxymoron – studies actually show that those who serve their way to influence (versus powering or buying) are more likely to:
- Become more effective leaders – the most effective leaders create five times more profit than poor leaders and twice the amount of profit of an average leader*
- Contribute to society – leave a legacy to those around them
- Attract followers – inspiring stakeholders, employees and community members alike
Founded on this premise, we seek to help you harness the power of leading sacrificially for the sake of others by providing educational and spiritual resources including: Biblical references and training tied to the greatest two servant leaders of all time, Jesus and Moses, as well as, secular references to some of the world’s most accomplished coaches, executives, and leadership authorities; advise when dealing with difficult human resource situations, as well as, strategic new-hire opportunities; and team building through our strategic planning and execution management process and/or our executive coaching.
Jesus said, “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant; and whoever wants to be first must be servant of all.” Mark 10:43-44
NBA coach and executive, Pat Riley, wrote about the “danger of me.” He said, “The most difficult thing for individuals to do when they’re part of a team is to sacrifice. It’s so easy to become selfish in a team environment. To play for me. It’s very vulnerable to drop your guard and say, ‘This is who I am and I’m going to open up and give of myself to you.’ But that’s exactly what you’ve got to do. Willingness to sacrifice is the great paradox. You must give up something in the immediate present – comfort, ease, recognition, quick rewards – to attract something even better in the future.”
