The past year's celebration of American emancipation raises key issues for global leadership today. Every time we revisit the documents of that outline our democratic values, we must wrestle with the ways in which our generation has or has not lived up to those ideals. McClure will explore a variety of ways in which these texts have been used to inspire civic activism and the development of regional identity as it pertains to leadership in government, education and business.

Monday, January 20, 2014, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


You must also register for entire program in order to participate in this workshop. Robert K. Greenleaf defined servant leadership as the natural feeling by an individual to serve first and everything else will fall into place. This leadership model values the education, inspiration and development of others and the direct relationship it has with servant leadership. In a relaxed, fun, and participatory atmosphere, participants are given a brief introduction to the concept of servant leadership, are offered examples of servant leaders, and then encouraged to explore other leaders and leadership opportunities for the elements of servant leadership. One of the principle benefits of this workshop is that it provides a different context and new language for participants to learn in discussing and analyzing leadership.
