Servant Leadership Questionnaire Structure

The Servant Leadership Questionnaire contains 28-items and will measures your leadership performance against seven major servant leadership dimensions:

  1. Emotional Healing
  2. Creating Value for the Community
  3. Conceptualizing
  4. Empowering
  5. Helping Followers Grow and Succeed
  6. Putting Followers First
  7. Behaving Ethically

This Servant Leadership Self-Assessment Questionnaire is a modified version of the Servant Leadership Questionnaire (SLQ) first produced by Linden et al. (2008).

The original version was designed for other people to assess your leadership performance but this modified version is designed to allow for self-assessment. 

However, if you wish to use this questionnaire for others to assess your leadership performance you can. The questions will just need to be reconsidered as ‘He/She’ rather than ‘I’.

Using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, Linden et al. (2008) established the multiple dimensions of this scale and described how it is uniquely different from other leadership measures. 

By completing this questionnaire you will gain an understanding of how servant leadership is measured and explore where you stand on the different dimensions of servant leadership. 

Servant leadership is complex to understand and apply so completing this questionnaire is one way to discover the dynamics of how it works in relation to your own leadership performance.

What Is Servant Leadership?

Servant leadership was first proposed by by Robert Greenleaf in his 1970 work entitled, ‘The Servant as a Leader.’

Greenleaf defined servant leadership as follows:

"Servant leadership is a philosophy and set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, builds better organizations and ultimately creates a more just and caring world."

Robert K Greenleaf

Servant leadership completely re-thinks the hierarchical model of leadership and turns it on its head.
