Digital transformation has made ‘as-a-Service’ the next generation business model. I thought it only fitting to apply this naming convention to a discussion of business leadership; and how adopting a service orientation at the core of that leadership, provides businesses a framework for success and long-term market growth.
‘Service-oriented leadership’ implies a management style that is neither authoritarian nor hierarchical; rather interrelated and united in a state of 'oneness' for the greater good of the organization.
We’ve all heard the adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It means that one’s personal development is not achieved in a vacuum; it takes the efforts of many. Notwithstanding an individual’s own talents and effort, that person’s success is, in part, attributable to a broad base of external support within his or her personal environment. It is this environment that serves as the enabler for the individual to demonstrate his or her capacity for success. This same concept holds true in business, as well.
