10 Characteristics of
the Servant-Leader “ The servant-leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. The best test is: do those served grow as persons: do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?”

we hold our institutions/churches/families in trust for the good of society not ourselves. Commitment to the growth of people
we are compelled to nurture the personal, professional, and spiritual growth of every individual we lead. Building Community
we should be focused on building relationships within the community we work and live. Attitude Empathy
people need to feel accepted and recognized for their unique gifts and contributions. Healing
all people are broken and striving to become whole again. We are on this path together. Managerial Skills Listening
