Abstract
This article introduces a new scale to measure executive servant leadership, situating the need for this scale within the context of ethical leadership and its impacts on followers, organizations and the greater society. The literature on servant leadership is reviewed and servant leadership is compared to other concepts that share dimensions of ethical leadership (e.g., transformational, authentic, and spiritual leadership). Next, the Executive Servant Leadership Scale (ESLS) is introduced, and its contributions and limitations discussed. We conclude with an agenda for future research, describing ways the measure can be used to test hypotheses about organizational moral climate, ethical organizational culture, corporate responsibility, and institutional theory
Keywords servant leadership  leadership  scale development  ethical leadership  transformational leadership  authentic leadership  spiritual leadership  moral climate  ethical organizational culture  institutional theory  corporate responsibility  interpersonal support  moral integrity  altruism  egalitarianism  transactional leadership  building community
