The current study aims to investigate servant leadership and religiosity of the employee as a performance indicator in the educational sector. First, we discuss leadership concepts, then achieving individual performance through servant leadership. Later, educational management leadership and servant leadership studies and finally, servant leadership, and religiosity with performance. Empirical analysis was on the basis of 323 respondents working in higher education participating in the current study through a survey questionnaire. Among R. K. Greenleaf (1977); Spears (1998) a few servant leadership characteristics, for example, cultural leaders, social justice, empowering others and stewardship are hypothesised and tested with religiosity with employee performance. The results through regression analysis suggest servant leadership is a proactive predictor of employee performance and the relationship is strengthened when tested with religiosity. The study contributes to much-needed study on educational leadership and management studies in Asia (Hallinger & Chen, 2015)
