Servant Leadership Workshop Training Experience – Portland, Oregon
Servant Leadership Facilitator, Trainer and Instructor- Chris Meade, PhD – Portland, Oregon
Developing Trusted Servant Leaders and Teams
This interactive and engaging leadership training workshop is founded upon the Servant Leadership Model created by former AT&T executive, Robert Greenleaf. This application based seminar weaves together the 10 transformational leadership practices found in the model. This workshop takes timeless principles of Servant Leadership and presents them in a format that encourages positive change in your organization and workplace. This Servant Leadership program is geared to improve each participant’s leadership effectiveness by helping them learn how to use influence instead of title, status, or power, to inspire others, cultivate trust, lead teams, and build a healthy culture where people flourish and grow… all while achieving your organization’s mission and strategic objectives.
