More notes from Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard

– The journey of servant leadership that starts in the heart must then travel through the head, which is the leader’s belief system and perspective on the role of the leader.

– There are 2 parts to the servant leadership that Jesus exemplified:

1) a visionary role – setting the course and the destination

2) an implementation role – doing things right with a focus on serving

– A compelling vision tells people who they are, whose they are, where they are going, and what will guide their journey.

– Once your vision is set, you can then establish goals to answer the question, “What do you want people to focus on now?”

– True success in servant leadership depends on how clearly the values are defined, ordered, and lived by the leader.

– When servant leadership begins, the traditional pyramid hierarchy must be turned upside down.

– Before trying to influence and engage others in working with you to create a compelling vision, you need to be clear about your own personal purpose.

– Servant leadership starts with a vision and ends with a servant heart that helps people live according to that vision.
