Effective Servant Leadership Behavior in Organizations

Article excerpt

1. Introduction

Leader behaviors that apply mor e significant influences on workers' self-identity have more powerful effects on subordinate behaviors. On account of the inconsta nt, a ctive, a nd people-or iented cha ra cter of ser vice sector s (Lazaroiu, 2015a, b), servant leadership may associate relevantly to workers' self-identity, and eventually to their operation: the former contributes more conspicuously than the latter in influencing frontline workers' self-identity (Nica et al., 2016) and successively their service performance. An extremely competitive group atmosphere determines clear requirements regarding work roles and powerful stimulants for workers to provide better customer service if they are capable and disposed to do so. (Chen et al., 2015)

2. Beneficial Influences of Servant Leadership on Main Organizational Results

Workers' self-identity entrenched in the group, which comprises self-efficacy and group identification (Mihaila et al., 2016), conveys the influences of servant leadership on employees' performance behaviors. Group competition atmosphere improves frontline workers' inclination to associate their service operation behaviors with their self-identity entrenched in the group. Recognizing that their own importance stems from their group belonging (Nica, 2016; 2013), people become institutionalized to their group and empathize with the other fellows. Servant leaders further frontline workers' service operation through the latter's self-identity, implied by their self-efficacy and group identification. Mediocre servant leaders are self-centered, being unsuccessful in showing a selfless and developmental predisposition that is signif ica nt in ser vic e cont exts. (Chen et a l., 2015) Effective lea der ship demands that followers be regarded before leaders. The latter should assist their followers so that these can develop into relevant actors who assist their organization (Popescu Ljungholm, 2015) and who can accomplish better outcomes than the leading participant would be able to create independently. Servant leadership tackles individuals who aim to be servant leaders as it demands them to annihilate their own inclinations, necessities, and/or intentions to for emost satisfy the topmost pr ime concer n necessities of their followers. Servant leadership is established in a for-profit entity by a servant leader displaying managerial expertise and coherence in assisting followers work out the diverse issues that they tackle every day, by complying with followers' workplace dema nds in order that the latter commit themselves thoroughly to their activities in the entity (Popescu and Ciurlau, 2016), and by generating an atmosphere where teamwork and synchronization are appreciated among followers when they accomplish their activities. (Ozyilmaz and Cicek, 2015)

Communication is an essential element that will interact with leadership features and workgroup results. Successful individual behavior in the workplace may be most highly accomplished by a powerful cognizance (Bondrea and Stefanescu-Mihaila, 2014a, b) and compliance to cultural standards and desirable communication approaches in the workplace. Leader-member mannerliness of exchange is an indication of the culturally suitable interactive exchanges that take place between leaders and fellows. The social and cultural standard exchanges between leaders and their group fellows are essential to the servant leadership process within the workgroup. Servant leadership concerns to the level to which a leader performs as a role pattern for an individual's followers and displays consideration for the followers' advancement and development. (Bakar and McCann, 2016) Being a servant leader incurs dedication to make personal renunciations to develop other individuals to their gr eatest capacity. In ser va nt lea dership connections the lea ders function as stewards: their followers are individuals who have been assigned to them to be lifted to their superior selves (Popescu and Predescu, 2016) and to be what they are qualified of becoming. …
