Entrepreneurs have a variety of leadership styles. One my favorites is servant leadership, defined as:
…both a leadership philosophy and set of leadership practices. Traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid.” By comparison, the servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. Servant leadership turns the power pyramid upside down; instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people.
Entrepreneurs that believe in servant leadership should use these seven words frequently:
Let me know how I can help
Pretty simple, right? These seven words show that you’re proactive and want to help. Many people want help. Fewer people ask for help. Servant entrepreneurs would do well to incorporate these seven words.
