Servant Leadership is focused on serving your team, rather than your team serving you. Out of serving one's team, a desire to lead is manifest. Servant Leadership is radically different than when the leader is leading first. When the focus is on leading first, it is very easy to use your power, your title (role in the hierarchy), or the fact that you were put in charge, as the basis of your actions.
