  • Tutu’s examples included: Mother Theresa, Nelson Madiba Mandela, Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi, a Martin Luther King Jr., and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
  • Kathryn Ballou, the new dean of nursing at Graceland University calls herself a servant-leader. In a recent interview she said, “I am a servant leader. I try to be transparent; there is very little I keep from my faculty. When we share as much information as humanly possible, we are bonded together...I don't like the phrase 'buy-in,' because it's not from the top down that we work, but it is collaboratively among participants.”

  • Wolfskehl, for example, would clear the snow from employees' cars on wintry days. Other proponents step in for absent staff rather than expecting others to shoulder the burden.
  • Weinzweig and Saginaw practice what might be called reverse delegation--constantly asking employees, "What can I do for you?" and usually doing it. "People give me assignments all the time," says Weinzweig. "Sometimes I'm the note-taker. Sometimes I'm the cleaner-upper. Sometimes I bring food to the meetings. Sometimes I'm on my hands and knees wiping up what people spilled." When Weinzweig visits the company's Roadhouse restaurant, busy wait staff don't hesitate to request that he serve patrons or bus tables. "We have to learn to be good followers," says Weinzweig.

  • First, the higher you rise, the harder you must work for others; no kicking back in the Barcalounger of success allowed. Second, although you hold formal authority over employees, you must treat them like customers and, when reasonable, do their bidding. Third, when your desires and the needs of your organization conflict, your desires draw the low card. "It's a big change from the way we're socialized to think about success," says Weinzweig. "When you've put so much energy into getting to a leadership position, this is hard."

Build widgets to share music, video and images.

  • Coaching is when a more experienced team member gives advice to a less experienced team member. Coaching can be implemented by assigning a mentor to the new employee.  This mentor could provide prescriptive advice on how to perform the skills of a real estate agent.  The mentor could encourage and model teamwork. The mentors could provide positive self-esteem that would help prevent employees from getting discouraged.
  • Feedback is another way to help the performance of new employee.  Feedback is a message meant to alter an individual’s behavior.  Feedback could be implemented by sending out customer survey forms on the new employee and then returning the results to the specific employee.  This would determine if the new employee is meeting the customer’s needs.
