Servant Leadership Across Cultures
Saturday, March 2, 2013
9 am to 6 pm
Servant leadership is an approach to leadership development, coined and defined by Robert Greenleaf and advanced by several leading business authors such as Stephen Covey. Servant leadership emphasizes the leader's role as steward of the resources (human, financial and otherwise) provided by the organization. It encourages leaders to serve others while staying focused on achieving results in line with the organization's values and integrity. In a world characterized by globalization, more and more entrepreneurs are entering the international market. This not only provides unanticipated opportunities, but also extraordinary challenges. Where the workforce is diverse, people will operate from different values. The result will be a "clash of cultures." Experience has shown that servant leadership in these types of dilemmas is the most effective approach. (1 credit)
