Teaching the Way We Do Business
Teaching is an essential attribute of a servant leader. Legendary basketball coach John Wooden once said, “If you show me a great teacher, I will show you a great leader.” Conveying the philosophy, vision, mission, and the fundamentals of the organization (department, division, team, etc.) is tantamount to the servant leader’s desired outcome.
The “way we do business” must be communicated to the masses embodying an elemental foundation of the divine and the moral so that those listening and/or reading will know this is “who we are.”
How much time do you spend teaching the “way we do business” and the “who we are” aspects of your organization?
