Challenges of institutionalizing servant leadership in an organization
Unless an organization is a nonprofit organization, all organizations try to attain the highest profits possible. Attaining quick results is essential to all leaders in these organizations. Many leaders may see servant leadership as a “slower to respond” leadership style. Servant leadership takes more time to implement. For example, in a non-business situation like a fire, servant leadership would not be effective. An authoritarian type of leadership style would be more useful so that everyone reacts promptly to the fire. Many leaders may think that they do not have the time to implement servant leadership and that they need quick results and profits. Most of these leaders do not understand that instead of servant leadership a leadership style may evolve that is not God-centered. Quick results and profits may be caused by greed.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these the wrath of God is coming (Colossians 3:5-6).
A greedy organization may in the end crumble.
