Abstract

The service leadership model and related curriculum were developed by the Hong Kong Institute of Service Leadership and Management. To nurture service leadership qualities in university students, a 2-credit service leadership subject was developed at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This paper presents the core beliefs and key components of the service leadership model and outlines the content of one of the lectures in the subject. The lecture attempts to help students recognize the importance of leadership competencies, moral character and caring disposition in successful leadership, and to explore ways to develop service leadership qualities. In addition to the lecture, class activities are adopted, including group discussion, role play, self-reflection, and drawing.
