c.    3 Habits of a Servant Leader

A Servant Leader practises the following 3 Habits:

i.      Desires to serve (Heart)

According to Robert Greenleaf, Servant Leadership “begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead”. The heart of a Servant Leader never seeks to accomplish things for personal gain or glory – sharply different from a self-serving leader. The motivation to serve others is at the heart of what it means to be a Servant Leader.

ii.   Learns to lead (Head)


A Servant Leader constantly hones his ability to think critically and creatively, looking for effective ways to tackle problems and practising regular reflection to take stock of his own learning. A Servant Leader understands that leadership is a journey rather than a destination. He is continually learning and improving himself because he understands that being a good leader involves cultivating knowledge and expertise so that he may grow in his capacity to serve others.


iii. Dares to act (Hands)

A Servant Leader reaches out with courage and conviction to serve the community. Beyond desiring to serve and learning to lead, a Servant Leader dares to take action. He is willing to make personal sacrifices and prioritise the needs of others, especially the least privileged in society. A Servant Leader regularly reflects on the effectiveness of his actions.  As Greenleaf puts it, the best test of this is for the Servant Leader to ask whether those served have grown to become better people. Through continued reflection and learning, a Servant Leader’s Competencies grow and his actions begin to uplift the whole community.
