Course Description:  Developing Servant Leaders consists of several hands-on exercises that make the training come alive and ensure participants translate the principles into a personal plan of action.

The Authoritarian Model of Leadership is lost on the younger generations and leads to fear, stress and minimal compliance. A Servant Leader approach yields motivation, goal setting, employee empowerment and higher levels of engagement.

Participants will experience self-examination in the context of leadership approaches. You will see participants begin to apply a variety of approaches from the 5 models of Leadership discussed in the program.  As participants begin to use these approaches they will be mindful of how effective each was and assess methods, adjusting accordingly.

Participants will begin to be more inclusive in decision-making and begin to take on a more “coach-like” approach to leadership, spending less time and energy on the mechanics of management.  As a result, employees will feel comfortable to approach management regarding career growth.  Leaders and those without leadership responsibility will begin to work more cooperatively, recognizing the shift from “management of doing” to “empowerment of being”; ultimately leading to greater trust, wellbeing, relationships and goal orientation of leaders and employees.

Tips for Measurement of Impact:     

  • Participants will begin spending more time interacting with staff and having conversations around goals and growth.
  • Participants will continually examine their approach to leadership and relationship building
  • Participants will begin to take on a more “coach-like” approach to leadership and less focus and energy on the mechanics of management.  As a result, employees will feel comfortable to approach management regarding career growth.  Leaders and those without leadership responsibility will begin to work more cooperatively, recognizing the shift from “management” of doing to empowerment of being; ultimately leading to greater, wellbeing, relationships and goal orientation.

I imagine this list could go on and onWhat other benefits might you think of from having this workshop?

Preparing today’s and tomorrow’s leaders with the skills and competencies necessary to be effective, efficient and purpose aligned – leading to greater goal achievement through a more comprehensive view of workforce leadership and its impact on society, as well as organizations.

Currently, the United States has two generations in the workforce (Gen X and Millennials) soon to take the helm of their organizations and have received little-to-no formal or informal leadership development, due to a perceived threat to boomer leaders and an economic perspective that training is a luxury that could not be afforded.

As a result, Gen X and Millennials are woefully under prepared to take on leadership and management roles in replacement of the retiring boomers.  These two external conditions and responses to them have created a true Leadership Crisis.  Leading Maryland has recognized this fact and serves to close the skills gaps in support of Businesses and Leaders across the State of Maryland.

Leading Maryland recognizes, organizations can’t not afford to train their leaders, recognizing their impact on company and employee achievement, as well as bottom line profits and losses.
