The purpose of this assignment is to examine servant leadership practices with regard to religions and cultures other than those associated with Christianity.
While servant leadership is often associated with Christianity and the Bible, one could argue that it is compatible with most religions and philosophies and that it transcends cultures.
This assignment presents you with an opportunity to explore other cultures, philosophies, and religions and asks you to think critically about how servant leadership practices are apparent in other religions and cultures.
First, begin by selecting and examining one national culture outside of North America and one religious viewpoint outside of mainstream Christianity. Then in a 1,250 to 1,500 word essay, discuss the following:
Explain how the characteristics of servant leadership are evident in your chosen culture and religion?
Identify similarities and differences between servant leadership philosophies and the values from your selected cultural context and religious viewpoint.
Identify specific examples of servant leadership practices (behaviors/actions) evident in your chosen culture and religion in your essay.
You are required to locate a total of four academic articles that address servant leadership in your chosen cultural context and religious viewpoint. Two of the articles should examine servant leadership from a different cultural perspective and two articles should examine servant leadership from a different religious perspective. The articles must be peer reviewed and have been published within the last 5 years. You must use and cite the articles within each content area in your paper to strengthen your claims.
