Abstract or Summary
  • The perception that there exists a lack of leadership can be found throughout history. Currently, according to Robert Putnam, there does appear to be a decline is social capital. This research examines the connection between business leadership style and effects on social capital. Most research on corporate social responsibility focuses on the business entity. This research focuses servant leadership developed by Robert Greenleaf, and how that leadership style may affect social capital. Articulation, a method described by Stuart Hall, is utilized to analyze Greenleaf’s original essay to identify the speakers, the practices used to link the various speakers together and their overall effects. This research finds that there are multiple speakers in servant leadership, many of which are located outside of the business organization. There are four principle practices that link the speakers together: leadership style, service, community, and how power is exercised. The result is necessarily a business that builds social capital both internally and externally, serves the highest needs of its followers while also contemplating the impacts on speakers outside of the organization, including the least privileged among us. This research also argues that the measurement of a servant leader organization will be through elements of service and not purely economic dimensions.
