Servant Leadership has become a popular tool for leaders in recent years though it has been dated back as far as 2000 years ago. Leaders employing Servant Leadership serve their followers/employees in an effort to increase both employee productivity and satisfaction. It has proved successful in numerous businesses and other organizations. The question is, then, does Servant Leadership have a place in the education system? The extension of Servant Leadership to teaching in higher education, “Servant Teaching” as it is being called, is a promising technique for focusing on helping students learn via a professor who serves them to better meet their educational needs.
