Perceptions of Administrators' Servant Leadership Qualities at a Christian University: A Descriptive Study

Education, v135 n4 p399-404 Sum 2015
The servant leadership model is often touted as the best model for Administrators to use at Christian schools of higher education. Research indicated, however, that a disconnection between how leaders of an organization perceived the strengths and weaknesses of their leadership skills and how followers perceived those skills can be detrimental to an organization. Limited research has been carried out in Christian higher education which explores this important issue. This study sought to identify how the top four leaders at a Midwest Christian university perceived the strengths and weaknesses of their servant leadership skills. These perceptions were then compared to how followers understood the same administrators' leadership strengths and weaknesses. A survey instrument was used to measure leadership perceptions.
