Servant? I’d rather be a host: it’s a much more interesting way of being a leader!
In agility we talk a lot about servant leaders, based on the metaphor from Robert Greenleaf where this is opposed to the leader as a hero attitude.
Yet, a servant has no power and no rights, thus a subordinate position that undermines the possibility to influence the peers.
The alternative is the leader as a host attitude: a new metaphor for leadership that models much better the role of a leader in an agile organisation.
