Servant Leadership: It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be

Ah, the sounds of feathers being ruffled! Tricia Broderick believes that servant leadership is not all that it’s cracked up to be. She wants and expects more from leaders then just being servants who act only when asked. Until now, a common (and easy) coaching style has been to transform managers from command-and-control leaders to serving others. How can anyone argue that the transition is a great step toward becoming an empowering leader? However, with this style, leaders keep experiencing problems―my team is not making decisions; my team is not making progress; my team doesn’t know what help they need. Let’s not forget a very personal concern―as the leader, am I now just an admin with a nice title? Join Tricia to explore the dynamics of various leadership styles that are essential for team evolution. Discover ideal traits and behaviors—beyond servant leadership—that will inspire, guide, coach, empower, and adapt to successfully serve others.
