Dr. Robinson has served on bothprofit and nonprofit corporate boards.He adheres firmly to biblically basedservant leadership theory and believes each person has a higher purpose orcalling to make a positive and lasting impact on others, their communities, andtheir world. “The difference [of servant leadership] manifests itself in thecare taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highestpriority needs are being served. The best test and difficult to administer is:Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier,wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And whatis the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at leastnot be further deprived?" (Greenleaf, 1970).
