I am working with English and Chinese students on the World Record Book of Jobs Creators.
I would say almost all are servant leaders but the cultural language needs a "beyond the classroom" education revolution - the experience of servant leadership needs translating across countries and to be joyfully networked by the under 30s (especially wizard technologists) if they are to be the sustainability generation
For example in our book Franciscans are servant leaders; I have travelled to Bangladesh 14 times to discover that all their girls empowerment solutions started with Paulo Freires philosophy of professionals needing to go live and learn with the poorest-its a pity that 20 years of microcreditsummits started by the Clintons in 1997 missed celebrating servant leadership and got taken over by western development financiers who frankly got ever further removed from redesigning value chains to help village families build the rural nation from scratch- one of the greatest economic and social miracles ever never got truly studied
When I invited two Chinese female graduates to celebrate Sir Fazle Abed's 80th birthday in 2016 at www.brac.net in Bangladesh they immediately started explaining how Jinping's goals for China ending poverty and becoming an ecological civilisation to benchmark win-win trade - require connecting 80 million public servants reformation around servant leadership. Amazingly to me, they explained that the brightest graduates in China are now celebrated for spending their first year after graduation as part of serve china village networks where they live with a village leader for a year and help specify what technolgy apps the village still needs and make sure that every level of public servant in the region gets on board especailly those who impact education. Fintech, edutech healthtech , safetytech. greentech including social justice and equality of women ... every kind of tech in china is now celebrated as focusing on apping tools of servant leadership aligned to sustainability goals and small enterprise trading connections
Although some people get political about Xi Jinping benchmarking trust with 100 national leaders as to how to reconnect belt road (wherever the colonial and carbon--rushed eras removed this) -so that every community can linkin to world trade - what i like best about this global2.0 process is it demands at every conflict border newly bridged youth cultural celebrations and a new can do spirit of serving each other; The UN's Antonio Guterres has called for a summit from this open learning perspective to be hosted by first ladies of refugee crises at 2018 UN General Assembly
I wonder how the student networks I connect might best connect with the servant leaders alumni networks you have found; back in 1984 my father at The Economist and I wrote a book recommending that sustainability would depend on 3 billion new jobs for millennials: most of these would involve serving microfranchsies - unlike a Mcdonalds macrofrancise the microfranchise is designed both so that the value of production stays in the community and to maximise a community resilience to serve and sustain its own critical neeeds - of course this also changes the purpose of local government and needs nothing less than an educational amd ,edia revolution in the usa for it to be empowered. This is how sustainability can be generated everywhere assuming the positive scenario that the human race does unite round youth and sustainablity goals in time
The question of how to scale this is a vital one for technologists and understood in many countries but as yet not so much America and American media. However with Amazon conducting its search across 200 places for a second headquarters there ought to be a way of getting place development public servants across USA all to benchmark servant keadership now - the last time such a nationwide benchmarking movement happened in America was Baldrige physical quality systems under Reagan. In those days there wasnt a web for mediating the collaboration spirit; today we need to just do that through a massive youthful sharing of Communirty for All solutions. Examples http://specialisterne.com/ www.singforhope.org the special olympics
I am scared that there is nobody in Congress who really gets servant leadership - it doesnt fit either party's way of using media nor the way legislators seem to believe passing laws on high is all that is needed for community rejuvenation at the grassroots.
If you see a timely possibility that we can help each others servant leaders friends and networks i would happily travel to meet you .
