SERVANT LEADERSHIP IN DIVERSE CONTEXTSServant Leadership in Diverse ContextsServant Leadership is defined as being the common inclination to serve others before oneself. Servant leadership's main goal is to “fundamentally improve the caring and quality of allinstitutions through a new approach to leadership, structure, and decision-making. The servant leader concept emphasizes increased service to others; a holistic approach to work; promoting a sense of community; and sharing of power in decision-making.” (Blanchard, 1991). A servant leader is one who seeks to lead others forward and encourage them to succeed. Servant leadership is the ability to identify and address the issues of others, and to help serve their networks. Worker initiative is a general thing and is something that everybody is equal, religious convictions or organizations may agree with here and there. This paper will address the similarities and differences between the approaches of servant leadership in the Indian culture and the viewpoint of Hinduism.Hinduism is a major religion practiced by 80% of India’s population (Knott, 1998). It is often referred to as “a way of life” or a “family of religions”, because Hinduism embraces many religious ideas. Also, according to many scholars, Hinduism is considered to be the world’s oldest religion (Hinduism, 2017). Like any other religion, Hinduism helps govern how one behaves, thinks, communicates, etc. One fundamental principle of the religion is the idea that theactions and thoughts of individuals directly determine their present life and future lives. Hindus are striving to achieve dharma, a code of living which emphasizes good behavior and morality. Hinduism includes numerous gods and various signs of God, and is seen as a progressively all-encompassing and complex approach to dealing with comprehension.
