Servant-Leadership Centre for Research and Education

Servant Leadership

Is a leadership principle embedded in a way of life, which has been recognized and expounded upon in all parts of the world from ancient times on, and across all cultures. At its simplest, Servant-Leadership is driven by the motivation of enabling others to work more effectively and be successful.

The Servant-Leadership Centre for Research and Education originated from an active group of researchers and practitioners at amongst others the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Greenleaf Centre Europe and THTConsulting. During the last two decades fundamental research on dilemma reconciliation in organizations demonstrated the key role of servant-leaders.
