#SmallBizBigImpact But How?

Here are excerpts from my book that discuss what it means to build up your small business with diversity, selfless service, humility, servant leadership, empowerment, faith, and hope & healing.

SMALL BUSINESS

Just because you are a small business owner or entrepreneur does not mean that you cannot make a big impact, but you definitely cannot do your business the same way as larger organizations and stay sustainably successful.

“…with wise project management, entrepreneurs and small business owners can learn which resources and tools they can use, and which ones they can modify, to meet the same needs [as large organizations, but] more affordably for their own organizational culture development.”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

DIVERSITY

If you, your teammates, or your stakeholders have differences, that only serves as an advantage. Embrace that and learn to use those differences in ways no one else can.

“Studies were done within multicultural organizations to show the benefit of having a diverse group of individuals who contribute to the organizational culture, and therefore, to the organizational knowledge.”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

SELFLESS SERVICE

Being selfless is not the same as being a doormat. It must be guided by your personal relationship with Jesus Christ and your understanding the example He laid out for you in His Holy Word.

“Over time, your small business can build a platform based on selfless service, but all of this starts with you, the head leader in the business, developing a heart with a selfless service focus.”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

HUMILITY

A personal relationship with Christ Jesus gives you a desire and thirst to know Him more and more so that you can humbly allow Him to lead your leadership choices.

“Quiet time alone in prayer, in Bible study, and in quiet Holy Spirit-led reflection are daily rituals that empower leaders to develop Christ-focused vision aligned with this truth [of humble servant leadership].”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

SERVANT LEADERSHIP

When serving others as your way of serving the Lord remains your focus, it prevents ethical and moral leadership problems for the top leadership and everyone else who serves within your organization.

“Primarily, the focus of biblical servant leadership on serving others as a way to serve Christ Jesus is perceived by followers as authentic leadership, which boosts their trust in and emulation of their leaders.”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

EMPOWERMENT

The most potent type of empowerment any entrepreneurial leader gives to their team is their example.

“After being purposely mentored and developed by their leaders, followers can succeed them as future leaders and mentors who serve first just as Christ served first, and just as it was emulated for them by their own leaders.”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

FAITH

The most authentic form of servant leadership is coupled with deeply rooted faith in the one who was the author of servant leadership, Jesus Christ, who sacrificed his life for all human beings. In my book, I interviewed a christian business leader who shared about how his faith shapes his business.

“authentic servant leadership can have far reaching impact within and outside of a company by creating an environment that fosters change at all levels due to the love and trust that ensues”

Johnson, D. (2019, January 7). 4 Basic Areas for Better Small Business Leadership: How Conscious Selfless Servants Impact the World 

HOPE AND HEALING

One of the most common ways small business leaders cause damage to their businesses and brands is in how they manage their people resources. In my book, I interviewed a christian business leader who shared about how his faith shapes how he manages his people.

“Humble leaders provide a supportive atmosphere for followers which gives them hope and brings healing.”
