BackgroundIn the movie Peaceful Warrior, the character ‘Socrates’ (as played by Nick Nolte) says, ‘There’s no greater purpose than service to others.’ This is the premise upon which servant leadership is based. However, in today’s economy, we see many leaders who are motivated by money, power, and prestige, but not by serving others.Our forefathers, the first Presidents of the United States, were not motivated by money or the like, but out of a deep service to the establishment of this country.
