Learn to Serve: Facilitating the Development of Servant Leaders

How can experienced and emerging leaders of organizations develop the characteristics Larry Spears, director of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership, describes as indicative of Servant Leaders? These characteristics are: listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of others, and building community.

How can these characteristics support and encourage leadership and organizational effectiveness?

This session will provide an introduction to Servant Leadership, based on the work of the Greenleaf Center and the classic essay The Servant Leader by Robert K. Greenleaf. We will review the basic tenets of servant leader philosophy and credo, and discuss how servant leadership may also apply to those in board, management, staff, and volunteer roles in support of nonprofits.

Sessions are customized to meet your learning and development goals.
