Throughout every project, there are impediments, obstacles, or constraints restraining, slowing down, or blocking the team’s progress towards achieving the project's objectives. The role of impediment remover must be taken on by the project manager when using the servant leadership approach for leading the project team. Servant Leadership is also the recommended leadership strategy when using an agile project management approach to complete a project. Servant leadership is the practice of leading through service to the team, by focusing on understanding and addressing the needs and development of team members in order to enable the highest possible team performance. Servant leadership is a leadership tactic that can increase team motivation and effectiveness. An Introduction to Servant Leadership is a course that will describe servant leadership and explain how a project manager can implement this practice into their everyday work environment.
