Various cultural contexts as well as different religions have an immense amount of similarities and differences when it comes to the proper way of how to guide with a servant leader heart. The functional attributes of a servant leadership are seen in every culture and background- but is skewed according to varying religion and culture background. This includes stewardship and awareness of being a successful leader. “Stewardship is the behavior of responsibly managing another person or organization’s assets that have been entrusted to one’s care” (p. 4). Commitment to the growth of people, servant leaders believe in the value of each individual person and are therefore committed to the development of those people” (Greenleaf, 2002, p. 53). Based on functional attributes such as "vision, honesty, integrity, trust, service, modeling, pioneering, appreciation of others, and empowerment” (Russell & Stone, 2002), Hinduism in the Indian culture portrays all of them quite well which allows for servant leaders in that authority to fully live out foundational empowering roles and what it means to be an effective servant leader to others.
