The servant mindset is one of the four most crucial mindsets that current and aspiring leaders need to master.
It's all about serving four groups:
Your leaders - serving your leaders means having a good relationship with them. Do whatever you can to make their lives easier.
Your customers - it's about making life a little bit harder on yourself so that it's easier on your customers. Go above and beyond to surprise and delight your customers so they would love to come back and even become your own brand evangelists
Your team - whether it's recognizing them, whether it's removing obstacles from their path, whatever it is, ask yourself, what can you do on an ongoing basis to help make those around you more successful, even if they become more successful than you.
Yourself - this is what most of us forget about. Practicing self-care will enable you to show up to work every day, at your best, ready to serve others.
