VSLLC® members reflect on leadership as relationship and lead from a clearer awareness in their lives. By participating in the core sessions, members experience authentic conversations that inspire greater understanding, compassion, and breakthrough ideas. For eight years, participants have left with clarity and invigorated passion about their purpose and how they want to serve…getting more in touch with that fire in their heart.
1. How to find and cultivate your strengths so that you can use them more effectively
2. How to deepen capacities for listening and accessing inner wisdom and courage
3. How to lead with greater authenticity, passion, and energy
4. How to “be present” in community and experience the gifts of a highly supportive network of dedicated servant-leaders
You’ll join nine other individuals on the journey of servant leadership. Past participants have come from a variety of disciplines, from work in corporations, public service, education, nonprofit, and other sectors. The facilitators will bring a breadth of experience, but expect to learn just as much from your VSLLC® peers. Some of our participants maintain relationships beyond their course.
Participants then virtually attend nine 90-minute tele-circles (a phone call that is intentionally a “circle” so that every person has an opportunity to speak and be deeply heard). Each call is focused on a theme of servant leadership and participants are sent pre-readings to prepare for calls. Sessions are facilitated by Dr. Deborah Welch, Dr. Virginia Gilmore, Duane Trammell, M.Ed. and Matthew Kosec, M.A. Facilitators have spent decades of their lives working with both individuals and groups in servant leadership principles and practices.
