This research aims to better understand the phenomenon of servant leadership in organizations by exploring its generic values and attributes. The paper presents an inductive model of servant leadership which has been constructed using computer-aided content analysis of archival documents relating to six preeminent historic servant leaders. Results showed that these servant leaders share special values and attributes that are also linked. The profile of servant leaders is differentiated from transformational and charismatic leaders.
