Northouse (2022) stated, “Servant leaders place the good of followers over their own self-interests, emphasize follower development, and demonstrate strong moral behavior” (p. 254). Based upon the information explored about servant leadership, address the following questions:
Explain three characteristics of servant leadership and why the identified characteristics are important.
Explain how a leader can both serve and influence.
Analyze the impact of culture on servant leadership. Explain how different cultural characteristics, as referenced by Hofstede, may influence the adoption/success of a servant leadership approach.
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting citations) along with at least two current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles. You may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such current scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.
Keep in mind that current scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search. Current research means published in the last five years.
You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post’s answer. Normal course dialogue does not fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
