6 Ten Characteristics of Servant Leadership
Listening: A servant leader wants to understand, and is willing to take the time to cultivate a discipline of good listening. Empathy: "The servant as leader always empathizes, always accepts the person, but sometimes refuses to accept some of the person's effort or performance as good enough." Healing: The servant-leader has a holistic approach to work, knows the importance of the whole person and not just someone's usefulness as a worker The Greenleaf Institute

7 The Greenleaf Institute
Awareness: The leader cultivates a high degree of awareness and alertness to what’s occurring inside and outside the organization Persuasion: A good leader persuades, and does not coerce; knows that people support what they help create Vision: The leader maintains the ability to see and articulate the goals, especially in the midst of crisis The Greenleaf Institute

8 The Greenleaf Institute
Foresight: People trust the leader’s foresight and good judgment in setting the direction towards the goals Stewardship: A servant leader has a sense of holding something in trust for others in the future, a sense of stewardship towards the institution and community Commitment to growth in people: Demonstrates a commitment to growth, of him- or herself, of those he or she leads, of the program or institution The Greenleaf Institute

9 The Greenleaf Institute
Community-building: The good leader is committed to building a positive sense of community in the workplace. Good leaders have a sustaining spirit (entheos, root of “enthusiasm”) that supports the group towards the pursuit of the goals. The Greenleaf Institute
