In his 1970 essay, Robert K. Greenleaf described the “servant leader” as someone who desires first to serve and then to lead. It’s someone whose primary concern is to help others realize their aspirations and achieve their greatest potential. In the Servant Leadership online course, you will discover how to shape an environment of support where everyone feels a sense of value and purpose – and where, as a result, organizational success is bound to naturally transpire. It is broken into three segments of servant leadership: managing, motivating, and mediating. From a management perspective, you learn how to establish shared power in decision-making to encourage the growth, development, and well-being of individuals and teams. Following management, you learn how to help others to develop an intrinsic motivation to excel in their job. The final module explores compassionate collaboration as a means of resolving conflict that results in an atmosphere of trust and respect in the workplace.
