2nd Annual Servant Leadership Essay Contest

M. Scott Peck writes that, "Servant-leadership is more than a concept, it is a fact. Any great leader, by which I also mean an ethical leader of any group, will see herself or himself as a servant of that group and will act accordingly." For the purposes of this award, "servant leadership" is defined as "the skills of influencing people to enthusiastically work toward goals identified as being for the common good, with character that inspires confidence" (Hunter, 2004, 32). A servant leads by influence and character rather than by coercion or power. Servant leadership is a relational-based approach to leadership. It sets aside the leader's own wants and needs in seeking the greater good of others (Id.).

This essay contest is open to any freshman or sophomore, and any essay (previously written or original) is eligible.  In 1500-2000 words, respond to the following prompt:

    "Serving others" is a term that is used in many different contexts. Please discuss its importance pertaining to leadership. Specifically, how can one lead from a position that is absent of inherent power or authority, and how does service come into play? Illustrate your point through an example of a specific leader or a personal experience.
