1 page- Leadership – APA –
Servant leadership is a term that often, as stated by Northouse, “seems contradictory
and challenges our traditional beliefs about leadership” (2019, p. 227). The literal
definition of a leader is to point the direction for others to follow, and for a servant to
follow those they serve.
That said, servant leadership has become a key philosophy within leadership. In this
discussion thread, assess how a leader can be both a leader and a servant at the same
time, and present two specific strategies a person can follow to ensure they become a
leader and a servant that influences others to follow.
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting
citations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. You
may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such
current scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits
those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.
