As a leader, you are useless overhead unless you’re bringing out the best in your team. Somehow, many leaders lose sight of this.
There are many ways to deliver value, and one of the best ways is to adopt a humble mindset of a servant leader. These leaders view their role as serving others as they explore and grow.
Servant leaders have the humility, courage, and insight to admit that they can benefit from the expertise of their team. Actively seeking the ideas and unique contributions of the people that they serve is how servant leaders create a culture of learning.
When leaders are humble, show respect, and ask how they can serve employees as they improve the organization, the outcomes can be outstanding.
