“Servant Leadership includes leaders who have taken up the responsibility to take personal care of a group of serious candidates for the advancement in devotional service.”
As a public administrator with more than 15 years of experience in health care services and public administration. However, I have a particular interest in the disability experience. Whenever the opportunity presents, I utilize my specialized experience to assist in varying capacities.
I have the privilege and responsibility of working with diverse groups of people with and without disabilities to facilitate programs and services and supporting advocacy for equal opportunity and civil or disability rights.
After all, I believe autonomy and identity are the heart and commonality of all cultural and social movements.
I think the cultural and social intersections are untapped opportunities to foster holistic approaches to interdependence and communication. This ideology derives from the concepts of globalization. Combining interpersonal communication and emotional intelligence to engage individuals via shared experiences; would undoubtedly cultivate social capital, in turn outputting greater access to resources.
I am not saying it is not being done, I merely affirming the significance of prioritizing the improvement of autonomy and identity in the workforce.
