On the path to developing as a servant leader, "shifting your mindset to one of enlightened self-interest, or one in which you believe that consistently helping others in a meaningful way will in the long run also help you."

1. Strive to provide value in every interaction, no matter what.
2. Serve, don't sell.
3. Value relationships over transactions.

When you focus on serving others, you're doing your part to create a kinder, more positive world. You'll bolster your relationships, build your credibility, and showcase your expertise to earn the trust of others.

And the best part? You'll not only elevate your life, but also the lives of those around you.

In this “problem-led” version of leadership, moreover, the person taking charge often changes with the phases of the effort. Through a fluid “stepping up and stepping out” process, team members take on more responsibility when the need for their particular knowledge or skill is greatest.

In a growth culture, people build their capacity to see through blind spots; acknowledge insecurities and shortcomings rather than unconsciously acting them out; and spend less energy defending their personal value so they have more energy available to create external value.
