Session 5b: Servant Leadership

In order to lead, we must first serve. It is hard to refute this statement. However, it is even harder to live according to this principle. So often our best intentions are impeded by all of our daily challenges. The session will focus on centering us on several guiding principles of Servant Leadership, trust and commitment. In addition to enhancing our leadership skills, we will also develop plans to enhance the effectiveness of our teams.
