Servant Leadership encourages leaders to serve others while staying focused on achieving results in line with the organization’s values and integrity.
The concept of servant leadership can be traced back, at least partly, to Jesus, who taught his disciples that “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:42-45)
We strongly believe that Servant Leadership can make a big difference for our country.
The AngInyongLingkod Section
Undoubtedly, the future of the world is still determined by the younger generation, the YOUTH. Their social, moral and economic awareness, their views and concern of politics and government issues are key factors that could determine the future conditions of a country. Future leaders! Where? Well some of them, you’ll find marching in the streets, demonstrating and voicing out their disbelief in many political and social issues. They just get younger and younger and smarter too. The older ones and the self-acclaimed wiser ones would think these people are still very innocent to understand the real issues of the world, helplessly trying to make a difference! Well, it’s a challenge of today’s youth to prove them wrong.
The youth make up a large sector of society. In fact many of our leaders rely on their majority vote. But beware because they are keeping a close watch. They are getting more actively involved in community projects that aim to remind our elected leaders of their sworn duties and responsibilities. People need reassuring, specially the younger ones. They need to know if they made the right choice so that they will not make the same mistake in choosing their public servants in the future. They have to know about the people they are willing to put into office.
Aside from the fact that the youth know their society, their economy and their politics, they also know their technology…the Information Technology. And its most powerful medium to-date is the Internet. In the advent of the Internet, many of its users rely on the World Wide Web in acquiring information of just about anything and of anyone. Patnubay Online is a website where our public servants are paid tribute. Here, users are given ready access to information of a particular official, groups, government organizations and agencies. They don’t have to look any further.
Ang Inyong Lingkod
“Ang Inyong Lingkod” is a commonly used phrase in the Philippines which means “Your Humble Servant” or simply “At Your Service”. You can always hear these words from radio announcers, TV hosts who are into public service. Some newspaper column writers also proudly include this phrase with their names.
“Ang Inyong Lingkod” is a very meaningful phrase. However, during election times, politicians seem to spoil this phrase just to win the votes of the people.But when they are elected into office, they seem to forget that they were voted to serve and not to be served.
Patnubay Online’s “Ang Inyong Lingkod” is created to give tribute to the REAL Public Servants. They may be individuals or groups, whether from GOs or NGOs as long they serve the people without asking for something in return.
These real public servants will be given a special page in Anginyonglingkod Section, with their profiles and photos.
