BUS4110 Servant Leadership in the Marketplace

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Ignatius Meimaris

Course Description:

Emphasis will be given on what is servant leadership, its origins in the biblical narrative, the impact it has on a business or an organization, the complementarity of service and leadership and its application cross culturally. The course will provide ways for the student to adopt this as a norm for his/her life.

How This Course Benefits Students:

The demand for this style of leadership has increased as we move further away from the top down leadership of the industrial age era and towards a more holistic approach for all stakeholders in the business environment, more sensitive and looking for relationships in the marketplace. Servant leadership workshops, seminars, conferences have become very popular especially over the last two decades and the business world shows great interest in this area. It is therefore pivotal for the student to become not just academically familiar with being a servant leader, but he/she is called to simply follow the model of the Lord Jesus Christ and to develop the appropriate lifestyle.

Why This Course Is Important:

In the midst of a leadership vacuum and increasing instances of businesses, governments, and non profits faltering, there is a need for time tested models of visionary and compelling leadership ingrained in the lives of followers of Jesus Christ. Servant leadership is this type of model.
