Servant-leadership

A feminist perspective

Kae Reynolds

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although there is a significant body of literature on feminist and gender -based interpretations of leadership, the same is not true for servant-leadership. Yet, the non-hierarchical, participative approach to defining organizational objectives and ethics makes this approach to leadership particularly interesting in the context of feminist ethics. This literature review builds on discussions of gender and feminist perspectives of leadership, and servant-leadership in the context of leadership theory, gender, and feminist critique. The intent is to expand the conceptual development of servant-leadership through a feminist framework and explore Greenleaf’s philosophy as a gender-integrative approach to organizational leadership.
