Part 2 – Leadership Interview

· You will interview an established servant leader.

· Interview your chosen leader based upon the following criteria:

o The leader must be from a large organization (e.g. Fortune 1000 company, national non-profit organization, branch of the armed services, or a mega-church with membership over 10,000).

  • 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.
  • NOTE:       for       the purpose of diversity, Liberty University and Thomas Road Baptist       Church leaders are not eligible.

· You will develop your own set of questions for the interviewee based upon the literature review and whatever else you feel is appropriate from what you have learned in this course.

· Tips for the interview process:

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.

· Develop criteria which describe the leader’s perspective on servant leadership behavior.

· This part is to be 2 pages, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, and double-spaced.
