The basic principle of servant leadership is serving others and the community. The three principles of the servant-leadership are sharing the power, putting the needs of others first and helping people achieve their highest potential so that they may want to serve others. This creates an environment of trust, collaboration, teamwork and group improvement. Robert Greenleaf created the term, Servant Leader, and creating the idea of leading by serving with individuals and organizations. In one of his major essay’s, The Institution as Servant, Greenleaf (as cited in “What is Servant Leadership,” n.d.) expressed what was frequently called the “credo.” Here he said: “This is my thesis: caring for persons, the more able and the less able serving

Typically those skills require communication and written skills along with a degree in education. It’s generally understood that the primary function of the AD is provide the leadership and management of the entire school’s athletic programs.

Over the last few years, I have come to get to know my interviewee. She is a really good friend of mine, and her name is Maddie Anderton. I have learned a lot about her over the years and where she came from. She moved here from Alabama in 2005. I chose to interview her, because she is always talking about Alabama and how much she wishes she could go back. It is always so fun to hear her talk about it, and I wanted to hear more, so the interview was the perfect way to go.
Tasks they do not have to do and tasks she could not fathom doing herself. She is very appreciative, compassionate, and understanding, and at the very end of her “Thank yous”, she very subtly addresses those officers that have abused their power. She respectfully says to them “you will never be above the law” (Rakovitis, para 1). She gravitates from thanking officers to apologizing to them. Apologizing for all the criticism, lack of appreciation, News and social media making them look like degrading people, and hatred in general. She apologizes for the fear they have to do their own jobs. She is sincere in these apologies, while, hopefully, opening the eyes of the small minded people to the fact that police have families of their own. They make mistakes. They are

On top of it all, she always remembered her heart and became an inspiration all over the world. She still touches
From my first semester in college I could not decide what career I want to be in. After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone. American government places a huge role in the world and many countries need American Foreign Service to help them with their problems. After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service. How she talked about their work is pleasing and incredible. Melissa Martinez changed my way of thinking about Foreign Service and interested me in her work.

The two main constructs of this leadership are ethical behavior and concern for subordinates. The characteristics embodied in this are stewardship, foresight, conceptualization, persuasion, building community, listening, empathy, awareness, commitment to growth of people and healing.
