Although the concept is timeless, the term was originally coined by Robert K. Greenleaf. His first publication on this subject explained that
"The servant leader is servant first." This stems from the idea that the initial fundamental approach later becomes a conscious choice. This philosophy forms a sharp contrast to those who exhibit a leader-first focus, later mustering support to allow them to exploit their control. These two types of leader are extreme opposites. Between the two, there is only a shady, blurred area.
A servant leader focuses primarily on growth and on the well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. The servant leader shares power voluntarily, and puts the needs of others first.
