Servant Leadership 101

Publication Date: August 3, 2022


Human-centered health is about focusing patient care towards personalization and prevention and increasing patient engagement and empowerment. To effectively practice this model of care in our communities, an organization might need to consider the engagement and empowerment of their internal teams and develop an organizational culture ripe to empower their patients. 

This module is meant to provide a basic understanding of the background and advantages of servant leadership, and to illustrate to health center leaders, at all levels of the organization, the benefits of a serving mindset for ensuring the success of their teams. Learners will discover the role servant leadership has in encouraging innovation and tending to the well-being of employees and in turn, their patients.
