The Historical and Philosophical Influences on Greenleaf's Concept of Servant Leadership: Setting the Stage for Theory Building
Boyum, Ginny
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
Servant leadership has become a popular topic in both the secular and scholarly literature, as organizations increasingly demand both ethical and authentic leaders. Yet we know little about what informs or directs a person to become a servant leader or why someone would engage in servant leadership. This paper offers a philosophical framework that informs and directs the act of servant leadership, the first step in the applied theory-building journey.
