I just finished a fun call (with about 100 of my closest friends) with Patrick Lencioni.
He shared insights from his excellent book “The Motive – Why Do So Many Leaders Abdicate Their Most Important Responsibilities?“ and several other topics.
One of the points that really stood out to me was the discussion around entitlement vs. stewardship in leadership. He said that he really doesn’t like the term “Servant Leadership” because:
“Servant Leadership is the ONLY Kind of Leadership.”
He then said that anything else really isn’t leadership at all.
What a great perspective!
I’ll still use the terms “Servant Leader” or “Serving Leader” but with a greater realization than any real leadership must, by default, acknowledge that all real leaders are servants first.
What do you say?
