Satisfaction (Happiness at Work) and Employee Intention to stay with an organization, utilizing dimensions of servant leadership practices. The six dimensions of servant leadership practice were Values People, Develops People, Builds Community, Provides Leaderships, Displaying Authenticity, and Shared Leadership. The participants consisted of 59 respondents, from faith-based higher education institutions. Participants were given an 84-item questionnaire survey. A correlation and a structural equation model (SEM) were used. We found that all the variables significantly correlated with job satisfaction. Intention to Stay played a moderator role between the servant leadership variables and job satisfaction. Intention to Stay predicted 33% of the variance of job satisfaction; 54% of the variance of Intention to Stay is predicted by dimensions of servant leadership practices.
