Servant Leadership

Servant Leadership



“I truly believe that Servant Leadership has never been more applicable to the world of leadership than it is today. Not only are people looking for a deeper purpose and meaning when they must meet the challenges of today’s changing world; they are also looking for principles and philosophies that actually work. Servant Leadership works. Servant Leadership is about getting people to a higher level by leading people at a higher level.
-Ken Blanchard

Leadership is not about leading. It's all about Serving.

“The servant-leader is a servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is a leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them, there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature.”


-Robert K. Greenleaf
We are providing below the excerpts from the most authentic source for Servant Leadership - the book written by Robert K Greenleaf, the pioneer of the concept. We are also researching the concept from its core and updating important information regularly on this page for the benefit of our readers and practitioners.  The book titled "Servant Leadership- A journey into the Nature of Legitimate Power & Greatness".  
  • Those who deliberately make things more complex are intellectual fools.
  • You can’t motivate people by lighting a fire under them, you have to light a fire within them.

The Four Temperaments

The Four Temperaments!

The Four Types! Why four? Why not forty? or any other number. There are more than four kinds of people, aren't there? Of course, but everyone from the ancients to modern psychologists discovered in understanding the highly diverse nature of personalities and behaviour, we can group them into four basic types of personality. There are lots of personality systems working in the concerned areas of temperament and personality in the world now.  Many of them claim to judge the temperament and personality very accurately and give many pages of detailed reports about the person.  We respect each genuine initiative in the field of temperament and thus decided to give the readers and practitioners the most basic of all temperaments theories, i.e. The Four Temperament Theory.  Here we want to emphasize that these observations give you initial knowledge about the temperament and how one behaves in certain circumstances and we at Know Your True Self® Research Foundation…

People come to coaching for many different reasons. Some come to find a solution to the challenges they are currently facing, some come for finding clarity in their thought process so that they can move ahead in the right direction, some come for finding peace within and address their stress and anxiety level, some come for discovering their true calling and some come for growth from one level to another among many other different reasons to come for help. But if we see deeply we find the bottom line for people for opting for coaching is Change.
And here I want to emphasize on one of my favorite quotes, presumably from Confucius "If we do not change direction, we are liable to end up where we are headed.". And yes, we all know that the world today is changing at a fast pace and if we need to stay relevant, to grow, to thrive we need to change with the pace.

A personal coach becomes a catalyst in our journey through this change. After observing, experiencing and having hands…
