This month’s topic: The Servant Leader by Jim Autry
James A Autry is a best-selling author, poet, and former Fortune 500 executive. In his book, The Servant Leader, Autry doesn’t give easy answers for being a servant leader in the workplace. Instead, he gives practical application and advice to the servant leader/manager. First, he says, find good people, train them well, and then develop the tools that create a servant leadership workplace. Not just any tools. Servant leadership tools for facing organizational issues like firings, layoffs, re-organization, and personal issues of employees. Autry speaks directly to what is needed when leadership goes wrong and times are bad.
In small group discussions and leadership exercises, you will take away tools, ideas, and resources for implementing servant leadership. This session will be facilitated by Christa Williams, Executive Director and Learning Facilitator at Sophia.
*You do not need to read the book to attend this session. The session will be recorded.
Community of Practice sessions are amazing opportunities for any and all area leaders to gather and learn from each other. Through these monthly sessions, attendees build, share, and learn from others as a community of servant leaders. It’s highly interactive and each month a different servant leadership topic is explored. The same topic is covered during both sessions monthly (Coffee & Conversation and Leaders Do Lunch).
