Servant Leadership

I have been interested in leadership development for many years, and servant leadership in particular. When I examine my own leadership style, and how and what I choose to teach, servant leadership is a recurring theme.  Most recently, I gave a lightning talk at Reed College for a PDXWIT event, focusing on the need to maintain a servant leadership approach even in troubled times.

Because I enjoy teaching topics close to my heart, I created a workshop on Servant Leadership, and I’m sharing my materials and links to other writing and resources.

I built my outline based on readings from the following links, in addition to Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and “The 8th Habit.” (article about teachers as servant leaders)‐Spears1999.pdf (this is an outstanding overview/outline of a servant leadership course, but I’m not sure the official materials are still available.)
