In a recent podcast, Patrick Lencioni talked about leadership with an interesting twist. He said, “There is no such thing as ‘servant leadership.’ If you are a leader, you are a servant.”
Of course, the idea speaks to many facets of leading. Some serve themselves, and others serve the people they lead.
Rory Vaden coined the thought, “If serving is beneath you, then leadership is beyond you.”
Both of these men speak to the heart of what leadership is all about––serving.
We have the example of Jesus. The question really becomes, “Who will we serve in our leadership?”
