Part 2 – Leadership Interview

· You will interview an established servant leader.

  • The selected leaders must       have both rank (e.g. business: a division head or vice president; military:       full colonel or navy captain (O-6 or above); ministry: executive or senior       pastor of a mega-church) and command (e.g., he must have       managerial authority. A high-ranking accountant does not qualify.       However, the director of the accounting department for the whole company       may qualify). 
  • The selected interviewee       may be active or retired.

o Identify yourself as a graduate student doing research and make it clear that you will take no more than 30 minutes of the executive’s time.

o Explain that you are in a leadership class and that you are learning about servant leadership.

o Tell your interviewee that you have identified him/her as a servant leader and that you want to find out a real executive’s perspective of servant leadership. Have a good reason (e.g. personal knowledge, an article you have read, testimony of subordinates, etc.).

o Be sure that you can contact your interviewee again if you need to ask follow-up questions or to thank the interviewee for his or her time.

· Provide a summary of the leader’s answers.
