50-Word Paraphrased Abstract (Your Own Words)

Dr. Christensen challenges students to look at the most important priorities in life. He encourages people to find happiness in career and family life. Having a clear purpose that aligns with what is important to you will help you stay on track.

The authors review ten years of literature on poverty and entrepreneurship and focus on entrepreneurship as a way to solve poverty. They encourage the society to help those in poverty stricken areas open their businesses rather than seeing them as a market for goods hence creating a long-lasting solution.

The authors discuss and review the importance of adopting a descriptive approach based on behavioral sciences, on top of the illustrative methods based on philosophical traditions, in understanding comprehensively the value people attach to ethics and how it influences their decisions and actions. The method is found advantageous.

The paper reviews empirical studies done on servant leadership theory to assess and discover mechanisms, outcomes, and impacts of the servant leadership. The study sought to find out if the theory is distinct and viable for organizational success. The theory explored using multiple measures was essential for organizational success.
