Yikes! I'd hardly call such servant leaders as Buddha, Jesus, Gandhi, Mandela, ML King, etc. "boring."

Their ideas seem likely to keep pulses throbbing, energy levels high, and creative juices flowing and not only in the domain of organized religious/spiritual traditions.

Steve, I guess you are missing the point. Servant Leadership is all about personal values and attributes and I guess none of the attributes come in way of getting a job done or energizing the workforce. Humble is not feeling inferior, rather it is being unpretending.

Raj,

I do get your point, "servant" and "humble" include "unpretending", but in the normal meaning of words, those words also have other connotations that are less favorable and less relevant to leadership.

People can use words and announce what they intend to mean by them, which may be different from their normal meaning, but does that result in clear and useful communication?

There is a lot of uncritical thinking going on about "servant leadership", e.g. Tom Peters.

I should probably write some more on this.

This is a wonderful site. The things mentioned are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.

Interesting, but actually it deppends what you want, for example I don't give the %100 to this company where i work because I don't want to, I don't need to rise positions, I just want to open my own business and I'm working for that.

The interesting information, the tonic on a note! Steve, I guess you are missing the point. Servant Leadership is all about personal values and attributes and I guess none of the attributes come in way of getting a job done or energizing the workforce.

An informative blog! People can use words and announce what they intend to mean by them, which may be different from their normal meaning, but does that result in clear and useful communication?

The leader is open to other ideas, including the certainty that a proportion of what he or she believes firmly to be true is false. The leader is outward looking and neither humble nor arrogant—simply open-minded.Good Luck

Thanks for this post! The term “servant leader” was coined and defined by Robert Greenleaf and supported by many leadership and management writers, including James Autry, Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey, Peter Block, Peter Senge, Max DePree, Larry Spears, Margaret Wheatley, Jim Hunter, Kent Keith, Ken Jennings and others.

Rather actually! Servant-leaders achieve results for their organizations by giving priority attention to the needs of their colleagues and those they serve. In order to be a servant leader, one needs the following qualities: listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, growth and building community.

I agree that most people who do not know about this style or model of leadership will think of weak leader. I would say that 21st century people phrase can also be understood differently by people from different backgrounds or parts of the world. We should learn to express our opinions when we know about the subject not playing with words. I personnaly have researched this type of leadership and I think this best suits to any century leadership. Because this is about humilty and love, which is the best weapon if you like to win any war. This is the biggest problem we miss to win the wars today.
