What the Best Servant Leaders Are Made Of

The best leaders know that before you can truly lead your team, you need to serve your team. 

Leaders have always had to manage unforeseen disruptions that threatened team performance day-to-day, but there’s never been a more challenging time in modern human history to be a team leader. 

I’ve felt very privileged to bring my in-class instruction to develop the next wave of servant leaders. I am convinced these professionals are the ones that will be best equipped to tackle any and all future challenges. 

These eleven characteristics are key foundational features across many of the most successful organizations and technical leaders, such as:

  • Empathy
  • Foresight
  • Persuasion
  • Stewardship…and more

That said, great leaders aren’t limited by definitions — they are self-defining professionals that work tirelessly to make an impact wherever they may be. 

This infographic is a useful tool to help concentrate on the characteristics that are common among highly-successful technical leaders, whether you’re looking to improve your own leadership skills or elevate an aspiring leader in your organization.

Great servant leaders can be defined in many ways — but the best ones focus on serving first.
