Officially coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in 1970, servant leadership is a widely known approach to leading people, communities and organizations to develop and perform to the greatest of their abilities. Unique to servant leadership is the principle of primus inter pares, which in Latin means first among equals. As Robert Greenleaf describes himself, “The servant-leader is servant first…It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first.”
