1. Review the seven different emphases of servant leadership in Chapter 3 of the textbook. Which emphasis was most divergent from your view about servant leadership and which was most convergent? Explain your response.
2. You are excited about what you have learned so far. You try to share your excitement with your supervisor and tell him/her you are taking a servant leadership class. His/her response is, “Servant leadership is overrated. You can’t get any real work done that way, you know. Coddling people and being a soft leader will not get you very far.” You brush off the remark but decide to revisit the subject with him/her later because you believe he/she has the wrong view about servant leadership. How do you think you would approach your supervisor on the subject? What should you say?
3. eview the discussion on the concept of service and leadership in four religious traditions. What similarities and differences do you see across the four religious traditions? How has this shaped your thinking about other religious traditions?
4. Servant leadership is explored within different cultural contexts in Chapter 10 of your textbook. Identify at least two culturally specific variables that impede the adoption of servant leadership within one specific cultural perspective. If you were transferred to that country to work, fully aware that you would encounter those impediments, how do you think they could best be overcome in order to enable servant leadership to be implemented in a culturally-compatible manner?
