Servant leadership is a term that often, as stated by Northouse, seems contradictoryand challenges our traditional beliefs about leadership (2019, p. 227). The literaldefinition of a leader is to point the direction for others to follow, and for a servant tofollow those they serve.That said, servant leadership has become a key philosophy within leadership. In thisdiscussion thread, assess how a leader can be both a leader and a servant at the sametime, and present two specific strategies a person can follow to ensure they become aleader and a servant that influences others to follow.Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supportingcitations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. Youmay find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with suchcurrent scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibitsthose leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.ReferencesNorthouse, P.
