Business organizations need to introduce trans-oriented response way and efficient management skill to survive in these days of severe struggle for existence. The new management models now ask organizations for building a new employee-employer relationship. As the economic recession continues and consumption shrinks around the world, many companies are in trouble. Companies will fall behind in the market unless they respond to this seamless and fast-changing business environment and market in a structured fashion. Therefore, the importance of leadership is growing bigger and bigger. This study reviewed prior literatures dealing with the servant leadership and surveyed workers in the service industry. Resultingly, it was found that servant leadership had positive effects on organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior, and that the superior's trust affected the effect of servant leadership on organizational commitment.
