Energize Your Leadership Skills - Develop A Service Strategy

When you read the words, "Servant Leadership", what image pops into your mind? Do you picture a king toiling in the fields next to his farm workers, or do you see imaginary scenes of your supervisor sweeping the floors or washing clothes?

Don't worry, most people have trouble with this concept of service-minded leaders. We still want to think of those who lead us as being 'command-and-control' types or highly confident, decisive individuals.

While many leaders share aspects of those two archetypes, the effective, exemplary, extraordinary leaders are, first and foremost, truly servants or at the least, extremely service-oriented.

You can energize your leadership skills by training your mind, will and emotions to adopt a philosophy of serving others. Developing your heart, soul and spirit to inspire and motivate you to act in ways that benefits people is vitally important to your success.

Do you desire to be thought of as a leader who exerts great influence and earns the respect of others? If so, you will want to steadfastly embrace and be faithful to a rock-solid belief system that evangelizes a mission of service.

The best, most productive and resourceful leaders make themselves useful in many different ways - typically, they serve:

    - as a solution,

    - as the facilitator who empowers people,

    - the specific needs of some group,

    - a greater good,

    - a higher power or purpose.

Why Use a Strategy of Service?

Strategies help you to define your approach, position ordirection. Your leadership strategy should reflect the toneof your intention. In other words, your strategy should actas a guideline for your leadership style, role, behavior,agenda or patterns of work.
