How Social Recognition Can Inspire a Culture of Servant Leadership

February 16, 2017 | By Mike Ryan

Smart companies are now embracing the concept of servant leadership. Organizations whose managers have embraced this practice have happier and more engaged employees working for them. Other organizations, however, are not yet realizing the gains to be had by adopting it fully. So what are some companies doing right that others aren’t?

Why are managers in top companies seen as more supportive than they are demanding? Why are they looked upon as mentors and friends vs. bosses?

In this month’s Performance Perspective, we explore:

  • How social recognition helps servant leaders develop and guide others

  • Building better bonds between employees

  • Supporting employee growth and developmental support

  • Instilling a sense of servant leadership in others
