It is hard to imagine that during difficult times, there is another approach to business than downsizing and layoffs. By changing the focus away from self-interest towards the common good, Servant Leadership is a philosophy where the business leader is a servant first and leader second. Imagine the CEO of your company showing a real interest in your growth and development, concerned that you have what you need to help you thrive. Imagine how you would feel about a company where management valued you enough to listen deeply to what you had to say and even do your bidding. Are you dreaming? No…Servant Leadership can change the way we do business by fortifying the roots or foundation of the organization—the employees. Join me and my guest, doctoral candidate in Leadership, Mark McVay, as we discuss the alternatives to letting people go.
