Servant Leadership

  • Neighborhood Housing Partnership 527 East Home Road Springfield, OH, 45503 United States

Traditional leadership is a top-down design of the organizational chart: CEO, CFO and COO.  "A servant-leader shares power and focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong." -Robert Greenleaf
