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.

This workshop is based on the book ‘The Servant: A Simple Story About the True Essence of Leadership’ by James C. Hunter. The concepts of Servant Leadership are as ancient as written history and have been proactively integrated into Project Management for several decades. It is therefore 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? Join Lisa and Dave for an engaging day of discovery in the world of Servant Leadership.
