LESSON 4-6: Healthy LeadershipBuilding a Servant Leadership Culture"The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. Inbetween, the leader is a servant." -Max DePree"You can have anything you want in life if you just help enough other people get whatthey want." -Zig Ziglar"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." –Winston ChurchillWELCOME & PRAYERPREVIOUS LESSON FOLLOW UP From the Weekly Application of Lesson 4-5, what item did you pick from theLeadership Skills Self Assessment to improve and what was your SMART ActionPlan? What were the results?KICK OFF QUESTIONIn James Hunter’s book The Culture, a statement is made by Simeon that his biggesttakeaway from his distinguished career was the following:“The essential task of the leader is to create and sustain an environment orculture of excellence wherever they lead.” How does this statement apply to you and your organization? Where does yourorganization fit on a scale measuring excellence?PRIMARY SCRIPTURESJesus’ washing the disciples’ feet is given in John 13:1-17. Below is an excerpt fromJohn 13:5b-13.Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”“No,” Peter protested, “you will never ever wash my feet!” Jesus replied, “Unless I wash you,you won’t belong to me.” Simon Peter exclaimed, “Then wash my hands and head as well,Lord, not just my feet!”Jesus replied, “A person who has bathed all over does not need to wash, except for the feet,to be entirely clean. And you disciples are clean, but not all of you.” For Jesus knew whowould betray him. That is what he meant when he said, “Not all of you are clean.” 1/2017, p - 1 -Lesson 4-6: Building a ServantLeadership Culture

by James C. Hunter and Turn the Ship Around by David Marquet. All the resourcesreferenced in these lessons are worth purchasing and reading. You will be blessed.To create a Servant Leadership culture within an organization requires a lot of hardwork. It does not come natural. You must start with yourself, fully embracing the idealsand letting it show throughout your everyday actions in a manner that others might wantto emulate. Once you are comfortable you are headed in the right direction, the nextchallenge, and it is a huge challenge, is to introduce servant leadership to the people inyour sphere of influence. A good place to start is with those individuals that evaluatedyour leadership skills in Lesson 4-5.Once people are intrigued by the idea, then comes learning, growing and implementation. Ittakes continual process of understanding what your teams need. By the way, first step, quitusing the term ‘employee’.The most significant person that needs to grasp Servant Leadership is the leader of theorganization. It is very difficult to effect organizational change without the organizationalleader being the champion. You can move in that direction and others will likely follow yourlead if you lead well, but having the CEO (or whatever your leader is called) as the championmakes a huge difference.Do not get frustrated. Just do what you can do in the sphere of influence you lead. Pray thatGod takes care of the rest.SERIES APPLICATION How can you, in your current position, help build an exceptional institution whereyou are? What are three things you can do?
