Servant Leadership is a principle-centered approach to personal and organizational leadership. This philosophy has been adopted widely throughout the business world due to improved outcomes, and due to its focus on people at all levels of the organization who work together to build community internally and with the customers served through their efforts.

This program is designed to promote discussion of the salient principles of Servant-Leadership as applied in the law enforcement arena. It is based upon the writings of Robert K. Greenleaf who originally promulgated the philosophy and upon reflections of many leadership experts who have studied Greenleaf. Attendees will be encouraged to participate and to begin, or further, their personal journey toward more effective leadership practices.
