Marysil recently accepted a new role as lead project manager within a well-established healthcare firm. Over the past three months she has worked hard to launch new concepts and styles into the environment. She approaches every situation by contemplating purpose, people, and process—in that order. What type of leadership style does Marysil obey?
The servant leadership approach centers around empowering the team. A leader using this approach focuses on addressing the needs and development of team members to yield the greatest team performance possible. A servant leader approaches project work by clarifying or creating purpose (the “why”) for the project/work, focusing on people by encouraging an environment where all can be successful, and lastly, they focus on process by looking for results.
