In a paper (1,000-1,250 words), address the following questions pertaining to servant leadership:
“Although servant leadership is often associated with the Bible and Jesus Christ, it is totally compatible with most religions and theories of philosophy.” Using one Leadership Theory and one other philosophical or religious viewpoint (apart from Christianity or its denominations), explain whether you agree or disagree with the statement above by applying Greenleaf’s characteristics of servant leadership as the criteria for your evaluation.

Explain the importance of self-awareness and emotional intelligence and the role they play in enabling you, as a leader, to model the capacities of characteristics of servant leadership.
Include at least four academic resources as references to support your position.
