Create a graphic representation to illustrate the similarities and differences between the servant leadership principles of Greenleaf and those in the Bible passages.
Write at least 750-word summary of how both Greenleaf and the Bible call people to serve, and discuss how one feels when called to serve as a leader. In your summary, include discussion of the following:
- Similarities and differences between Greenleaf’s servant leadership and the Bible passages.
- Describe how this will impact your personal approach to leadership.
- The idea that power comes from giving it away and putting oneself in the position to serve others. Using Matthew 20:20-28 and Greenleaf’s principles of servant leadership as a basis, explain how taking the role of a servant can make one a leader.
Provide specific examples from scripture and supporting citations from the readings related to Greenleaf’s principles of servant leadership to strengthen your ideas and claims.
Submit your graphic representation and written response as a single Word document, not as a PDF.
