Discussion Questions

Order Description
Answer the questions in complete sentences in question format; I will attach the chapters 5- 10 which will be used at the reference:

1. Review the discussion on the concept of service and leadership in four religious traditions. What similarities and differences do you see across the four religious
traditions? How has this shaped your thinking about other religious traditions?

2. Servant leadership is explored within different cultural contexts in chapter 10 of your textbook. Identify at least two culturally specific variables that impede
the adoption of servant leadership within one specific cultural perspective. If you were transferred to that country to work, armed with this knowledge, what would you
do differently to bring about a change in perception of servant leadership?

3. Arguably, one of the most influential servant leaders of our time has been Nelson Mandela. What characteristics of servant leadership did Mandela display? Do you
think they were culturally influenced? Which of these would you have found personally challenging to display if you faced the same conditions that he did? Do you think
that challenge is culturally influenced?
