Why is it important?

The results of this empirical research may have practical implications for managers in voluntary organizations. Moreover, the results of this research are hoped to make an important contribution to the emerging literatures of servant leadership and volunteerism.


Volunteering requires people to forgo something important to themselves and to engage in those helping services in a steady manner over long periods of time. Relatedly, I think that servant leadership approach is very appropriate for the sustainability of voluntary organizations and their activities. Also, I am very happy to see that the results of this study support my views.
