Servant Leadership

About the Program

Servant leadership is a philosophy and set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, builds better organizations and ultimately creates a more just community and a caring world.

We’re proud to partner with Viterbo University to offer you a renowned two-part servant leadership program. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn servant leadership skills from nationally recognized, in-demand facilitator Tom Thibodeau. The takeaways from each session are timely, practical and impactful.

The program is broken into two sections so you can enter the program at either of the two points – Fall or Spring.

        Our most acclaimed class! What people are saying …

        “This class provides great insight into the role of servant leadership in our communities & businesses. As a leader it has helped me look more at the impact I have on others & how I serve them rather than the focus being on me.”

        Lori Hortman

        Altra Federal Credit Union

        “The classes provide an excellent opportunity for self-reflection and self-evaluation. It was also good to share experiences with other members of our community that I may not have had another change to interact with.”

        Karen Kouba


        “Others should attend this class because it inspires you. It makes you want to be better. It puts you in situations that are uncomfortable-which in turn, helps you grow.”

        Michael Garcia

        1st Community Credit Union

        “Entry level ownership would achieve satisfying results from attending this class. More than a class, it’s an opportunity to share life’s experiences as individuals in the community.” Joe Skemp
