Servant leaders consider themselves to be equals, not superiors, they are more relatable and humble. They teach and mentor those around them, and actively seek to learn from others. Servant leaders ensure that the differing and unique strengths of each team member are being sufficiently put into practice. Their objective is to help every individual continually grow and improve professionally.
Contrary to popular belief, the path to success is not all about blood, sweat and tears. Some leaders believe that relinquishing their vacation time will increase their chances of success, not so! The most successful leaders take time off! If you’re guilty of working nights, weekends and holidays, take heed of research carried out by the Australian National University that revealed that the work limit for a healthy life should be set at 39 hours a week instead of the 48-hour-week limit set internationally about 80 years ago and that ‘Long work hours erode a person's mental and physical health, because it leaves less time to eat well and look after themselves properly.’
