Servant leadership is increasingly being tested, and proven to be a viable tool for managing multi-cultural organizations. Existing empirical and conceptual studies on servant leadership suggest that this leadership construct is practicable. While a lot of studies seem to have investigated its effect on individuals’ and organizations’ outcomes, none has moved the motion that servant leadership might have universal connotations.\ud This conceptual paper explores the underpinning framework of the universality dimension of servant leadership, and why viewing the construct as such, is necessary now and in the\ud near future. By critically examining past and present literature on servant leadership, the\ud paper offers robust and useful insights needed to stimulate the universality debate of servant leadership. The implications of the paper for early career researchers were also discussed
