Servant Leadership October 20, 2020 • October 21, 2020 Wayne Coates ESTC Rm. 118 8am-5pm 16 As a servant leader, you’re a 'servant first'- you focus on the needs of others, especially team members, before you consider your own. You acknowledge other people’s prospective, give them the support they need to meet their work and personal goals, involve them in decisions where appropriate, and build a sense of community within your team. This leads to higher engagement, more trust, and stronger relationships with teams members and other stakeholders. This training focuses on developing your “servant leadership” skills and understand the role servant leaders can play in accomplishing the purpose of the organization. 30 Register Now for Servant Leadership with Wayne Coates on October 20, 2020
