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.”
