Principles of Servant Leadership
Both in Indian culture and Hindu beliefs, many of their philosophies and values are
similar to the principles of servant leadership. There are countries in Southern Asia that are
accepting of leaders who are showing charismatic and value based leadership (Carroll, 2014).
Servant leadership is about serving others, displaying trust, empowerment, encouragement, and
service to their employees or followers. Three attributes of servant leaders in India are they have
humility, empowerment, and a vision. They lead and serve other by continuing to listen and learn
from their followers. Leaders in India also empower others by using their full potential by
playing to people’s strengths. Finally they have a vision, they see the big picture and are able to
see how each person can contribute. The values found in Indian culture are similar to servant
leadership, including the values of modesty, dignity, patience, integrity, observing, listening and
Gandhi is one of Hindu’s leaders that exhibits these values, especially integrity.
