Abstract

The authors show how the concept of servant leadership can be enhanced by combining it with spiritual leadership. In fact, a true servant leader should also be a spiritual leader. The authors demonstrate that one of the earliest servant leaders, Moses, was also a spiritual leader. Abraham Lincoln is also used as an example.
