There are some specific strengths and weaknesses within the ambit of servant leadership and team effectiveness. Servant leadership shows that more must be done by the managers to develop the emotional maturity of the managers that they engage and work with and the trust relationship among the managers was also additional findings when the data was analysed. Perhaps they can attend a training course, workshops and even enroll for degree courses in psychology and embark on team building exercises to build on their trust relationship issues. People need to be understood, and managers need to shepherd the people they work with using great care and compassion. The other issue of attention is that managers must become less selfish by esteeming the colleagues better than themselves and by being self-

sacrificing regarding their needs. Putting one first is a sure way to promote servant leadership in any institution. This research presented information and findings that may be used in future studies relating to leadership behaviour, as outlined in servant leadership theories and concepts and its effect on subordinate behaviour, in organisations with the aims to improve team effectiveness in healthcare in Saudi Arabia Military Hospitals using effective leadership styles.
