We often associate the idea of leadership with words like power, authority, and charisma. But historically the people who make lasting positive change know true leadership is about developing individuals and building a community around a shared purpose. Servant Leaders put the people they lead first, empower them, help them develop their full personal capacities and unlock their potential, creativity and sense of purpose.  The servant leader moves beyond the transactional aspects of management, and instead actively seeks to develop and align an employee's sense of purpose with the company mission.

With a servant leader at the helm, empowered staff work together as a high-performing team - more engaged and purpose-driven. This in turn allows an organization to develop future leaders and ensures the long-term viability of the organization. 

This program will allow managers to think differently about leadership and team development, and gain useful tools to lead effectively while keeping focused on those who are a part of their organization. Using the ideas of personal Integrity, good communication, foresight, collaboration and systems thinking, this program will give participants practical tools, starting with a self-evaluation, to move toward implementing a culture of servant leadership within their organization.
