Benchmark – Servant Leadership and Christianity

INDIVIDUAL PROJECT 1

Benchmark – Servant Leadership and Christianity

Details:

In the Topic Materials you were introduced to Robert Greenleaf’s principles of servant leadership. You also read biblical passages related to servant leadership. Using a graphic organizer such as a Venn diagram, illustrate the similarities and differences between Greenleaf’s principles of servant leadership and those presented in the biblical passages.

In 500 words, summarize how both Greenleaf and Christianity call people to serve and discuss how one feels when called to serve as a leader. In your summary, include discussion of 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, discuss how taking the role of a servant can make one a leader. Provide specific examples to support your ideas.

Submit the graphic organizer and written response as a Word document

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
