The International Journal of Servant-Leadership
publishes cutting-edge essays, theory, and research that will further the influence of servant-leadership globally, in the scientific community, in the world of business, political inquiry, and social justice, as well as across the academic disciplines. In the discipline of leadership studies, many leadership theorists view servant-leadership as the most compelling and profound answer to the fast-paced, change-oriented climate of the present age. The journal reflects the ideals of educating the whole person, living a life of personal courage and moral discernment, and striving to be a person for others in order to help heal the heart of humanity. It is founded on Robert K. Greenleaf's (1904-1990) notion that the true test of a servant-leader is that those around the servant-leader become more healthy, more wise, more free, more autonomous, and better able themselves to become servants; and the least privileged of society are benefited or at least not further deprived. The journal welcomes essays and articles that are practice-oriented, as well as articles that are primarily theoretical, or involving systematic research. The journal is devoted to the elegance, beauty, and art of a servant-led way of life, and the legitimate power that accompanies servant-leadership.
