About this Segment
Servant leadership is as old as time, and yet a conceptual definition seems to be somewhat elusive, until now. Dr. Patterson addresses servant leadership as a virtuous leadership perspective by explaining the seven components of servant leadership, which are love, humility, altruism, trust, vision, empowerment and service.
