Servant-leaders place the needs of their subordinates before their own and center their efforts on helping them grow to reach their maximum potential and achieve optimal organisational and career success. Their motivation in accomplishing these tasks is not self-interest; rather, servant-leaders want their subordinates to improve for their own good, and view the development of followers as an end, in and of itself, not merely a means to reach the leader's or organisation's goals.
Servant-leadership highlights personal integrity. It also extends outside the organisation—servant-leaders serve multiple stakeholders, including their communities and society as a whole. Servant-leadership shows promise as a way to build trust with employees, customers, and communities.
