Seminar Description: The concepts of Servant Leadership are as ancient as written history and have been proactively integrated into modern leadership practices. It is incumbent on us to understand what is meant by this seemingly self-contradictory term. How do you serve as a leader without having people take advantage of you? How do you get results through service to others?

We must adopt this style of leadership in order to "innovate, lead positive change, and create sustainable value" with our teams. This is the style that works and organizations that recognize and adopt this transformational style are most successful, have happier employees, which leads to increased productivity. Join Lisa and Dave for an engaging session of discovery in the world of Servant Leadership.

Key Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the values and advantages associated with Servant Leadership
  • Apply the principles of Servant Leadership in the workplace
