The leadership field is comprised of several competing theories. Servant leadership is the only one addressing two critical dimensions:
· Service to others and to own self.
· Growth for both the leader and the followers.
Servant leaders transcend individual self-interest, serving others by helping them grow both professionally and personally thus bringing:
· Greater work performance in the work-force, and
· Higher commitment among workers for their organizations.
