As Bruner strives to grow as a business, we have adopted several practices to help propel us toward an employee’s first, customer-driven culture. One of those practices is the notion of Servant Leadership.
What is Servant Leadership, you ask? It’s a culture of serving those you lead; it’s a distribution of power and responsibility to allow employees to make their own decisions; it’s seeing things through the eyes of those you lead; it’s putting yourself in others’ shoes; and it’s keeping the well-being of fellow employees in mind.
Servant Leadership is not just a practice – it’s a culture of leading by example, which can be applied to both personal and professional lives. By embracing the role of a Servant Leader, you are choosing to uphold and embody the Seven Pillars of Servant Leadership. You seek lasting change, create authentic relationships, persevere with a non-anxious presence, invest in motivated people, and focus less on doing things the “right” way and more on doing what is right.
By empowering people and creating a positive work environment first, profits and success will follow.
