Document Preview

Seminar on leadership was very informative and helpful to develop leadership skills in the audience. Seminar was held on servant leadership. During the seminar, people were provided with diverse helping material consisted of literature, models, charts and brochures. Speakers in the seminars discussed in detail about servant leadership. I learned valuable conceptualization and the way servant leadership comes to practice in day-to-day life. We were informed that, servant leadership is regarded as both leadership practices and leadership philosophy.

            Servant leadership believes on power sharing instead of centering the power to few specific hands. Servant leadership prefers the needs of other people and emphasis on mutual collaboration, cooperation, sacrifice and living for other. Audience was also informed about the history of servant leadership. It was informed that servant leadership rooted its history in china between 570 BCE and 490 BCE. Origins are found in Chinese text of Tao Te Ching written by Laozi.

            However, in the recent time, term servant leadership was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in his article published in 1979. He conceptualized those organizations and individuals both could be servant leadership. Decision-making responsibility lies among the leader and employees. Responsibilities and mutually shared and practiced by the organization or team members. People are encouraged to work for other well-being.

Implementation of servant leadership theory for looking after the Mosque:

                This is my old habit to look after the mosque located in 9945 Vernor Hwy, Dearborn, MI 48126. After attending the seminar, I decided that I should apply servant leadership knowledge and skills I learned in the seminar. By this way, I will be able to look after the mosque in better way. I formed up a team of local residence and my classmates to clean the mosque as volunteers. I served as a servant leader.

            I told my fellows that we are going to serve a noble cause to clean the mosque and I will be personally involved in cleaning and looking after the mosque. I further told them that our purpose is to serve the mosque and the people who come here for saying prayers. We do not have any personal motive and we will work with mutual collaboration and cooperation. After that, I divided the responsibilities to clean different sections of the mosque among my fellows. On daily basis, we meet together and mutually share viewpoints and activities to be performed.

            Suggestions and efforts are mutually done to clean and look after the mosque. Servant leadership model is best suited for such kind of work. Looking after and cleaning the Mosque required a spirit of a servant who serve the mosque without any selfish motive. I personally think that it is a scared and noble work to perform which can be best done by servant leadership approach. Seminar was very helpful in this regard, which greatly helped me to apply servant leadership theory into practice.

             Instead of focus on centralization in decision-making, we worked as a team and emphasized on empathy, trust and ethical use of power. I formed up three team members including myself to collect donations for the mosque. For that purpose, I personally went house to house along with my fellow members and collected funds and donations. Such donations and funds were subsequently utilized for the development of the mosque. Servant leadership resulted in better outcome of our efforts. My fellow realized that it is a better approach to being followed by a person who does not regarded himself as a boss. Instead, he focuses on mutual respect, cooperation and joint effort.
