You've no doubt heard "servant-leadership" presented as today's model of choice! You may be unaware, that leading experts contend that the term "servant-leadership" remains either undefined or at best, underdefined. By virtue of the name, you'd expect it would be different in a good way - undeniably better! But is it?Other observers say that today's servant-leadership modelling is deeply flawed, rarely practiced, misunderstood, and potentially harmful. Mostly, it exists as a concept that each leader defines for themselves and then self-validates.Though trying to function as a servant-leader, isn't it true that a leader must act "master-like" to perform? How can one be both a master and a servant - and lead? Might role confusion be a root-cause of the common sense of disillusionment and distrust toward present-day leaders? What is the source and functional effect of these seeming contradictions?With over six decades of combined experience at the highest levels of leadership, the authors unpack a research project that starts at the beginning. About 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ made this statement: "with you it (leadership) will be different (and servant-like)."So, is it? Is your leadership measurably "different"? Different the right ways? Is it really "servant-like" as intended by the first person to speak of the idea? On what basis do you assess this and know for sure? Do you have the self-awareness to recognize when your leadership methods are reflecting the "master" within (ego, self) and at odds with "different and servant-like" leadership?The research compiled in this book uniquely links Biblical and contemporary sources, to provide relevant and practical answers to these vital questions and more.By reading this book, you will discover: • Why there is an inherent problem with modern-day theories of Servant-leadership. • The paradigm influence of the behind-the-scenes "master" when leading.• The specific "differences" that distinguish Servant-leaders from those who are not.• How to personally align the "master" and "servant" roles in your leadership.• A refreshing self-awareness of the internal tensions you face when trying to live the servant-leadership model.• An enjoyable walk-through of lessons and uncommon stories in the Bible that offer specific and powerful insight into issues of real-world leadership. Practical to the core and refreshingly clear, this book provides a step-by-step construct of thought. You find new empowerment, awareness, leadership grounding clarity, and a fresh orientation to lead with authenticity.
