We have leadership backwards. The old days of RHIP (Rank Has Its Privileges) are over, because they weren’t effective. The job of a leader is not to be served, but to serve others. The word Sergeant is actually derived from the old French word ‘serjant’ meaning servant. And as James C. Hunter teaches in one of my favorite books, The Servant, “Slaves do what people want; servants do what people need.”
