Example text

1. Power is granted from those below. The community creates the chance for a person to be in a position of power. Power is bestowed upon us by those we lead. We do not claim power; it is not passed on to us by others in power; we have no inherent right to power, whether by birthright, talent, or even achievement. If we serve those who put us in our position, then the recipients of our service and trusteeship are the core workers, the community, and the ones we become accountable to. We may be appointed by a board, or an executive, but they are given their authority as much by the people doing the work as by any other set of owners.

When I care about the one I serve, my character will not allow me to deceive, subvert, or ignore. I willingly serve and sacrifice and derive real satisfaction from doing so. Such service feeds on itself because its fruits are sweet. As we grow in character, we become more capable of cultivating I-Thou relationships. These are characterized by a relaxed, productive, and cooperative climate where differences are valued; where selfless service breeds mutual trust and synergy; where the ends and goals of both parties are pursued with mutual vigor and commitment.

Poor service is often the result of impersonalizing other people. It is an easy trap to fall into, particularly as we try to meet frantic schedules, process people in mass, or work in a culture that sees customers as chattel to be channeled efficiently. Remember: what counts is effectiveness with people, efficiency with things. When we focus on efficiency with people, we miss many opportunities for service; in fact, our "service" may become more harmful than helpful. A horrifying example of this was reported once on Page 26 the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
