The Essence of Servant Leadership

My peers and I hold what we call "Monday morning growth sessions."  It's our community of practice (more about that in my next post), and this week we focused on a quote by Andy Stanley:

Leaders fearlessly and selflessly empower leaders around them as well as those coming along behind them.

That quote inspired some great conversation in our CoP, and I have been thinking about it throughout the week.  What does it inspire for you?

I help people discover their agile instincts and develop their coaching abilities. As an agile coach with Improving in Dallas, I enjoy mentoring others to become great Scrum Masters, coaching managers to grow teams that deliver amazing results, and fostering communities that provide sustainability for agile transformations. In my experience, applying agile methods improves delivery, strengthens relationships, and builds trust between business and IT. A big believer in the power of community-based learning, I grew the DFW Scrum user group significantly over the five years I served as an organizer. I am also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, a foodie, and proud glasses wearer.
