The best work relationships are partnerships. They require collaboration between the leader and their people regarding communication, working style, feedback, direction, and support. But many leaders become so focused on meeting the organization’s needs that they lose sight of the needs and aspirations of their people.
Employees are engaged and productive when leaders care for their people and help them develop. Blanchard’s Servant Leadership Essentials™ course teaches leaders how to build trust, listen, and give and receive feedback in ways that bring out the best in their people.
Servant leadership is a better way to lead—and one that leads to higher levels of engagement, performance, and human satisfaction. Blanchard’s Servant Leadership Essentials course helps leaders take ownership of the process and actively partner with their people. There is a sense of accountability for the successful performance of others. The servant leader learns to align the individual’s purpose and role with organizational strategies. Leaders learn how to guide actions, add energy, and provide long-term perspective.
Blanchard’s Servant Leadership Essentials is delivered through two 2-hour live-virtual sessions and can be built into learning journeys.
