Dirck van Dierendonck, Professor of Human Resource Management at RSM has been mentioned in an article regarding the servant leadership model. He states that the model is not necessarily suited for every organisation. This model, he says, is particularly beneficial to team-driven performance, especially in service-oriented establishments, and to companies that require innovation, such as tech companies. Dirk also added that more than any style of leadership, “servant leadership addresses the psychological needs of people“ because it builds a sense of community within the organisation. If employees feel a sense of belongingness, a collective responsibility is created, which, in turn, fosters a greater individual productivity.
