The wisdom of organisational leadership is adding new vistas on a continuum with enriched and applied research explorations for enhancing organisation effectiveness. It seems the golden saying nothing is permanent seems to be very true as far as the arena of the organisational leadership is concerned in the global competitive scenario. This quote, without saying, highlights the corporate relationship of yesterday and today. There was a time when employees were treated like slaves. Today the time has changed and this changed time has also changed the leadership pattern which has evolved the concept of servant leadership. In short, this concept by Robert Greenleaf (1977) emphasized on nurturing, defending and empowering followers as the prime responsibility of a leader/ manager to pertain organisational effectiveness. Aligning to the above, the present research paper is an honest attempt to focus the utility of the concept of servant leadership and change in employee - employer relationship with change in time. The extensive literature reviews followed by the interview analysis of six of the leaders-cum-managers in the corporate as well as private business organisations in the states of West Bengal and Gujarat are incorporated in the research papers. Real life interview analysis on application of servant leadership gives a glimpse of change in leadership style with change in time and importance of servant leadership in todays competitive time.
