The concept of servant leadership has been around for thousands of years but did not see wide spread popularization until the modern movement. There has been a long-standing association with servant leadership and the teachings of Christianity and it’s many branches. However, there has been many other religions and cultures that have independently developed and cultivated servant leadership values. Sikhism and Japanese cultures are two independent examples of how servant leadership values have arisen in two different walks of life.

The Silk Road was a network of trading routes that spread across most of Asia and connected areas of eastern Europe back to China in 200 BCE to 1450 CE. Although many changes happened throughout this time, such as changes in religions in the area and social hierarchies, many things stayed constant, such as the desire for luxury goods and the trade of new technologies, religions, and products. The rise and fall of certain empires were a major change during this time. Starting around 200 BCE, the Silk Road was used by the Roman empire and Han dynasty to trade luxury goods such as silk. Later on, as western Rome fell, eastern Rome rose as the Byzantine empire, and used the Silk Road also.

The Chinese government is trying to integrate some of the Confucian principles into the lives of the Chinese by creating TV shows based on “good Confucian emperors” (Benjamin 7). The Confucian ideology as a whole was considered the main ideology of China for over a millennium, and it was accepted by the majority of Chinese until the 20th century (Benjamin 7).
