Servant leadership is an increasingly popular concept that fuses being a servant with being a leader. In this paper, servant leadership - which is characterized by active listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to growth, and community-building - is explored in the context of five selected demographic characteristics - socioeconomic status, level of educational attainment, gender, age, and respondent's domicile. Five research hypotheses are tested in this study, with full support being found for one hypothesis and partial support for the other four hypotheses.
