Abstract  

Servant leadership is a frontier topic in the field of leadership research. Servant leadership is one who is servant first and puts serving others as the number one priority. Based on the servant leadership literature both at home and abroad including its conception, structural features and measurements, comparisons with other types of leadership and empirical researches, the scientific status of servant leadership was reviewed. There are some problems and limitations in existing studies. Future researches should focus on the validity of servant leadership’s measurements, improvement of research levels and methods, identification for the nomological network of servant leadership, and exploration of its effectiveness.

Keywords servant leadership      servant first      leadership effectiveness      culture
