In life and leadership there is give and take. Our leadership to others should be given freely without any expectation of a return. We shouldn’t just give with the expectation of return of our service yet it appears some leaders do not see the world in this light. There appears to be many “takers” who take and never give back in return as well. Where have we gone wrong as leaders? Has our cultured played a part in this lack of respect of giving? Has the world become so cynical that those who give freely are being abused by those “takers” among us? A servant leader knows that when you bestow a gift of your time and service, it is honor to serve, not a time to ask for favors in return for your service. There are many leaders who may need a refresher course on this type of leadership today.
