This is the first in a series of posts that we will be doing from time to time called – SERVE or BE SERVED.  We will be putting forth a member of our business, political or associations and solicit your feed back via comments is they are people of service to their community or if they are in their position of power to be served.

Those that are BEING SERVED conduct their life in a fashion that revolves around self preservation. They are intoxicated with the power of their position.  Those that are here to SERVE exhibit the characteristics described in Greenleaf’s Servant Leadership. Described below;

The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer, is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived?

The question for our readers is to determine if these leaders careers are primarily about keeping the status quo or doing the work of the community?

Let’s kick this off with Mayor Walkup – leave a comment;

SERVED

or

BE SERVED

Don’t be afraid to give some examples!
