Leaders Lead... Original post: Sun 11/6/2016 at 9:53 PM

This was the article that my group discussed last class period, so there isn't much new to discuss, here. Nonetheless, Ron Mirenda speaks on leading by serving. It's definitely factual that there is a difference between leadership and servant leadership; this is evident, too, by what arguments were offered during class discussion. Mirenda gives us 6 traits he deems appropriate to be a leader; lead, teach, provide, inspire, mentor, and serve. In class, characteristics like responsibility, maturity, accountability, etc. etc., were offered. This is where we find the difference between leadership and servant leadership. As I mentioned in class, the characteristics given by classmates were those to be a leader; characteristics for yourself. Ron's traits were for those to lead the people (or a group of people); to serve.

I like how you separate the definitions of leadership and servant leadership. There are many cases where a leader's primary goal is not to serve others but rather to serve their self. I have always associated leadership with power and servant leadership with compassion. A good example to show that not all leaders are servant leaders would be the candidates in the presidential election. In my opinion,  neither one of the candidates makes an effort to teach, inspire, mentor, or serve. In order to be a servant leader you need to have the best interest of others in your mindset.
