Measuring the ROI (Return on Influence) of Servant Leadership
375B
Leadership

Most think of a leader as being at the top of a pyramid. But in this leadership philosophy, the pyramid is turned upside down, and the leader prioritizes team needs, often resulting in higher performance and more engaged employees. Servant leadership is paramount when building a world-class organization, especially in the apartment industry—a highly relationship-intensive environment. Our actions as leaders set the temperature for our teams and ultimately our residents. Learn how to incorporate this leadership style into your professional life.
