Robert K. Greenleaf (deceased) first coined the term "servant leadership" and founded the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership.
"Emerging leaders, or already practicing leaders, should consider using servant-first principles," Enyia said. "It will revolutionize and change leadership."
Enyia feels secular and religious organization maximize efficiency when leaders empower rather than wield power. He also feels servant leadership is best manifested in Jesus, who came to earth to serve and not to be served.
"He did not impose his authority over them but gave them tools they needed to perform," Enyia said.
In the forward of "Servant Leadership: Tear Down Pyramids," Enyia provides personal examples of how servant leadership impacted his own life – from childhood into adulthood.
Enyia also speaks from his leadership experiences.
For example, Enyia has also served as pastor at the First Baptist Church in University Park and as minister of video/television operations at New Faith Baptist Church International in Matteson, according to the news release from Strathmore Worldwide.
Enyia also served as a battalion commander in the Biafra Republic Army during the Nigeria/Biafra War (1967-1970), the news release also said.
Even there, Enyia practiced servant leadership principals, he said.
"I was a commander and yet I had to earn their respect and recognize they are the ones I should serve," Enyia said. "When you invest trust in them, they invest trust in you and then you can accomplish what it is you set out to do."
Enyia later served as president of the Nigerian National Alliance, a large Nigerian community organization in Chicago. In that capacity, Enyia also successfully led a movement against a Nigerian military dictator in the 1990s, the release also said.
