Servant leadership is different than other leadership styles. This leadership style allows leaders to share power and to put the needs of the employees first and helps others develop and perform as high as possible. The person who finds himself in a position of leadership must carefully steward his responsibility as a gift from God (DelHousaye,2004). The biblical worldview would state that this loving relationship is related to two principles: honor and protect. In servant leadership the leader who values everyone’s contributions regularly seeks out their opinions. This is one way a leader honors the employee by valuing them. The leader may also step in and helps people with the needs that they are experiencing at home or in the workplace. The employee is provided opportunities of growth and identifies any barriers that may be rise up to prevent that from happening. This is an example of protecting the employee and acting as their advocate as a person, not only as an employee. By protecting and honoring your employees, they will understand the commitment you have in them. This will important to improve employee engagement and boost their confidence in themselves and their workplace.
