This is a model custom essay writing on Servant Leadership

Many would agree to the statement, “to lead is to serve”. It was well said by Rabindranath Tagore, that serving is synonymous with enjoying. To put it in other words, serving is the best means of creating a channel of compatibility with another person. Serving the person is the best way to gain trust from him and thus lead him. This very idea has led to the concept of Servant Leadership.

The concept of servant leadership finds its origin in the Bible. The Bible says that the servant leaders first anchor themselves in service to God and stand ready to serve and lead others. It is the desire to enrich and enhance the lives of those being led through unselfish servanthood. It stands against the styles like, authoritarian, top-down, and command and control styles of leadership.

Servant leadership demands those qualities in a leader that are absent in most of the other styles of leadership. Listening forms one of the most crucial tenets of servant leader. To actively listen is to convey, with body, face, eyes, posture, gestures, that one is really interested in hearing what someone is saying. Research has shown that many people when engaged in dialog, listen inattentively to others and spend time in rehearsing what they wish to say. Such a tendency defeats the purpose of being a servant leader.

The servant leader must be able to put himself in the follower’s shoes; be empathetic towards the followers. Empathy is a key trait of servant leaders. Without empathy, one can’t build trust. And without trust, one will never be able to get the best effort from his employees. Empathy can be shown by persuasion. The leader who influences by persuasion need not tell the follower what to do. The leader acknowledges his dependency on the follower. Although a manager may have the authority to carry out certain actions without consulting subordinates, it is probably more effective to include them as it gives them the opportunity to express their opinions. By actively soliciting agreement a leader makes a strong appeal to the follower’s esteem.

One of the key elements of the servant leaders is thinking beyond day-to-day realities and communicating the same to the followers. This demands expertise to conceptualize and communicate the problems to the followers effectively.

The five C’s of effective communication:

  • Collect
  • Comprehend
  • Categorize
  • Convey
  • Convince

Every leader must specialize in the process of communication. The first task is to collect the information that is to be communicated. Here the leader should avoid the redundancy and the obsolete factors that dampen the crisp in communication.

After collecting the appropriate data, he needs to comprehend the same. This needs understanding the finesse of the issue/data in order to communicate the same to the members effectively. The leader should understand the fact that level at which he delivers the message may not be same at which the employers receive it. With the changing times, there is a need for change in leadership style as well. Corporate and the social organizations have realized the importance of servant leadership and it is proving to be a successful style of leadership.

Being a top sales manager means being above average, which translates to getting more done with less effort

Being a top sales manager means being above average, which translates to getting more done with less effort. That’s what distinguishes a top sales manager from a mediocre one. But how do YOU become a top sales manager? You apply the 80/20 rule.

But first things first – what exactly is the 80/20 rule? The 80/20 rule—or the Pareto Principle, named after the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto—states that 80% of effects is the result of 20% of the causes. For you this simply means that 80% of your sales will come from, roughly, only 20% of your sales people.

But when you apply the 80/20 rule in real life with the aim of becoming a top sales manager someday, you need to be prepared for the consequences.

For example, a good friend of mine who started a very successful business once told me a story about how the 80/20 rule could sometimes prove to be a double-edged weapon in real life. Famous as he was, this friend of mine collected thousands of followers on Twitter. But he only had time to follow a handful of people—20 or so, around that number anyway—which he deemed had actually something important to say.

Most took it that my friend was being a snob. Or was he?

Think about it. If you want to become a top sales manager someday, if you have dreams of being above average, you need to filter right here and now who and what you listen to. Not every piece of advice is worth gold. That’s what I meant when I said to apply the 80/20 rule in your life.

There will be lots of ideals, concepts and pieces of advice from different people trying to get in. But you don’t need all that noise in your life and in your career. As a general rule, you need to be constantly unsubscribing to stuff, and pick out only the ones worth listening to. Who you listen to, and what sort of advice would make a good impact on your career, is something you need to figure out on your own.

That’s what my friend is doing, and I’m pretty sure the kind of success he has achieved speaks for itself. There’s no need for him to listen to 10,000 fans chiming in every second. Call him a snob—okay, fine!—but remember that’s exactly the kind of attitude you need if you want to get anywhere in this business.

Just because a couple of your colleagues in the office think you’re a snob doesn’t mean you are. You are simple trying to live and breathe like a top sales manager. What are they doing?

When you joined the company, you did so because what

When you joined the company, you did so because what? You had certain needs to be met. Not so? Perhaps needs for money, status, training, location. But as time went on…something curious happened, probably without you even noticing it.

Sure, you may have felt it. But few realise before it’s too late what happened.

Let me tell you. What happened was that the BALANCE OF NEEDS shifted big-style. No sooner had your needs been met, than the company put it’s needs continually higher on the agenda, whilst yours slid to the bottom.

Time-off? What about the project? More money? In the present competitive climate? A transfer? We need you here! More interesting work? Where do you think you are, a sweet shop?

Sound familiar?

A good sign that we have bought into the company game, or their version of the world, is when we feel stuck.

Here’s what we need to do in order to redress the balance of needs, and put our needs up their with the company’s…

1. Get Yourself a Much Bigger Game

Think long term. Think about what you want to do after this work. Consider what your heart it whispering. Put the job to one side for a moment, and ask yourself, if I wasn’t doing this, what would I love to do?

2. Spend Time Enriching This.

Consider your feelings on the matter. What it would mean to you? What might you need to learn to bring it about? How much fun you would have? In a nutshell, what kind of journey do you want?

3. See The Company as a Resource.

Now, clearly you have signed a contract and have certain responsibilities to undertake. That is fine, and you should do them to the best of your abilities. That said, you can also look at the way you approach your work, and consider what skills, contacts, qualities, information you want to develop that would stand you in good stead in your much bigger game.

Just make a list of some of the things you want to have in place when you leave.

Yes, when you leave. Because you will. Either of your own free choice, or circumstances will kick you out, or you’ll be carried out. One of the three.

So this is by way of a strategic approach. You with me?

4. See Each Day as a Framework for Learning

Rather than see each day as “another day at work” ask yourself, “What can I learn today that will bring my much bigger game a step towards me?”

See those 8 hours as potential. Sure you have a job to do, but there is much you can learn by adapting your APPROACH.

For example, you might want to develop determination, confidence, creativity, organisation, time-keeping, discipline, or a whole range of other qualities.

You might want to develop a range of contacts with interests that would support your much bigger game. Go find them as you go about your day.

5. Notice the Gratitude

A curious side-effect of this approach is that you may start to feel gratitude for the company for providing you with so many opportunities to grow.

Any resentment you may have felt can easily turn into a willingness to achieve even greater results!

The company will often wonder what it has done to engender such a turn-a-around. Hey, they may even promote your manager!

6. Spot the other Players

As you work with this strategic approach, you will start to notice others within the company who are on the same page.

You will notice a lightness in the way they handle “stressful” situations. Why? Because for them, this is not the be-all-and-end-all. It is a stepping stone, and so everything is in a more healthy context.

7. As the Pieces, Come Together

As the pieces of your puzzle come together, prepare well for your jump from this stone to the next. Having developed the resources you need, you will have confidence in your ability and a clear plan to hit the ground running.

So remember to step back from the company game you are in to see the wider, broader picture. See where this vehicle is taking you and what else you might learn from the ride. Consider where you want to go next, and how this journey can support that.

Most importantly, redress the balance of needs, and put your own back up there with the company’s.

Make you job work for you! 🙂

Have a great time

Becoming successful and having the ability to lead does not have anything to do with the environment in which we are placed or possessing certain talents and abilities, and discipline never works long term

Becoming successful and having the ability to lead does not have anything to do with the environment in which we are placed or possessing certain talents and abilities, and discipline never works long term.

What works is the shifting from having to do something to wanting to do something. At the end of the day becoming successful comes down to two things patterns and being able to do things a certain way.

Two kinds of people

There are people who are given everything? They have parents that love them who are there for them. They have a  tremendous education, all the resources only to end up, in and out of rehab their whole lives. Why?

Then there are those that have nothing, they’ve been abused, they have no one to care for them or support them in what their doing and they’ve been beaten down to their knees repeatedly time and time again. These are the people who turn out being some of the finest individuals you will ever meet in your life. Who are out their in the trench’s helping people, contributing back to their communities. These are the truly successful.

Leadership and Truth

Success in business and in life is about leadership and being truthful to yourself. To see things as they are, NOT worse then they are. What I mean by that is there are people out there that get scared when things don’t quite work out for them the way they hoped, so they make it Worse  (in their MIND) so they don’t have to try. They see things worse than they really are. They don’t want to continue, they don’t want to “keep on keeping on”. For fear of being disappointed. They don’t want to feel that sense of rejection or failure.

See it better than it is (vision)

What’s really missing in people’s lives these days and what’s preventing them from becoming successful is there’s no vision. People/businesses without vision will parish. If there is no vision for a greater tomorrow from where you’re at today, you’re looking the wrong way. Every part of your business or life needs a compelling future. If the future is not more compelling then today, even though today may be tough, you can get there.

What do Leaders do?

Leaders lead, How? By example, of course. As a leader, having been successful in business and in life it’s my job, my duty to help people see it as it is, NOT worse than it is. I’m here to assist individuals in creating a compelling future and see it with clarity so they can continue to give it their all and persist without giving up so they to can become a successful leader as well.
