The purpose of this qualitative phenomenological study was to explore the interrelationship between the influence of servant leadership and employee job satisfaction in a nonprofit organization. Servant leadership theory focuses on the leader’s ability to motivate, inspire and influence followers by serving first, then leading. The participants in this study were seven employees who worked for the organization and engaged with the clients and the leaders daily. Each participant discussed their experiences during two rounds of semi-structured interviews. Their experiences were pivotal in this study, and the data collection process yielded emergent themes that supported the positive influence servant leadership has on employee job satisfaction. The themes included leader support, empowering community, and job satisfaction. The implications of this study indicate the positive impact servant leadership has on employees in a nonprofit organization. Based on the theoretical framework of this study, the data analysis revealed servant leadership principles enhance work experiences for employees and influences job satisfaction.
