Grow as a servant leader

Servant leadership is primarily a relationship of equals which is an experience in which all feel they are giving and receiving. At Iona College servant leaders express unlimited responsibility for others:

  • Accept people as they are
  • Learn to empathise

The aim of all servant leaders is to help build the community:

  • Foster right relationships
  • Work for the common good
  • Leadership: “first among equals” (facilitator)
  • Recognition/celebration
  • Jettison privileges: self-sacrifice (Nehemiah 5: 14-19)
  • Look for goodness in people
  • Create space for growth
  • Encourage independence
  • Practice hospitality
