The article focuses on servant-leadership as an option to the current dominant leadership model in organizations. Coined by guru Robert Greenleaf, servant-leadership is said to commence with the innate feeling of wanting to serve others first. According to Greenleaf, the best test of this type of leadership is whether those being served grow as people. The characteristics of a servant-leader are also discussed.
