Being the Servant-Leader You Want to Be
This session will focus on inspiration and practical application of the leadership lessons featured in the book Wisdom From The Woods, co-authored by Sophia foundress, Virginia (Ginny) Gilmore. Note: reading the book is helpful but not required to attend this session.
There are so many leadership mis-conceptions about spending time in thoughtful reflection. Yet, research shows that people who intentionally reflect, just 15 minutes per day, are 20-25% more productive, happier, and less burned out than people who do not. So, why don’t more people do it? The number one reason that people say, “they don’t know how to do it.”
With the help of Ginny Gilmore and Jenny Knuth, current-Sophia board president, you will not only learn from Ginny’s story from more than 25 years ago (from the woods in Door County), you will also “try-on” and “practice” reflective leadership as a way of improving your own servant leadership abilities. Learn more about Ginny.
