Servant Leadership, management homework help

Module 2 – Case

Organizations as systems


In the movie Peaceful Warrior, the character
“Socrates” (as played by Nick Nolte) says, “There’s no greater
purpose than service to others.” This is the premise upon which servant
leadership is based. However, in today’s economy, we see many leaders who are
motivated by money, power, and prestige, but not by serving others.

Our forefathers, the first Presidents of the United States,
were not motivated by money or the like, but out of a deep service to the
establishment of this country. This SLP will examine their leadership styles
through the lens of the servant leader.
