One of the core beliefs of the service leadership curriculum proposed by the Hong Kong Institute of Service Leadership and Management is that “Every day, every human occupies a position of leadership and possesses the potential to improve his leadership quality and effectiveness." This core belief is in sharp contrast to some of the mainstream leadership theories that only a few people and elites can be leaders. In this chapter, a lecture plan regarding the nature of self-leadership with reference to service leadership is presented. The topics include definitions and concepts of self-leadership, relationships between self-leadership and service leadership, ways to promote self-leadership; and conclusions and reflections. During the lecture, students are also encouraged to reflect on how well they lead their lives with reference to the concepts of self-management, selfmonitoring, and self-improvement.
