According to Littlejohn & Foss (2017), the culture of the organization is actually the organization itself (p. 316). It follows that, as Hatch & Schultz (2002) hypothesized: organizational identity can also be seen as analogous to individual identity with analogous social impact (p. 989). One crucial question to answer is: what is the organizational value of a cultural approach to managing from a servant leadership perspective? Peer-reviewed literature shows that businesses and organizations improve their competitive position, for hiring and within the marketplace, by intentionally and skillfully developing their organizational culture with an authentic, consistently implemented mission statement that goes beyond just aspirational and inspirational tenets and incorporates selfless service by all levels within the organization, starting with top management.
What does this mean for a small business? Your business culture is rooted in who you are and in your character. From a Jesus-focused faith-based perspective, the impact your small business can make is based in your daily choice to lead based on a servant-leader perspective grounded in how Jesus would serve and lead. Can your small business make big impact? Yes. How? By choosing to be a conscious selfless servant, as Jesus has exemplified for us.
