The phrase “servant leadership” originated with Robert K. Greenleaf in "The Servant as Leader" essay, first published in 1970. According to the Greeleaf Center for Servant Leadership, "A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. While traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid,” servant leadership is different. The servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible."
