You might wonder whether the “feel-good” principles of servant leadership hold up in high-pressure, performance-driven sales and marketing organizations. Not only do they hold up, the attributes of servant leaders are more relevant than ever for marketers who are leading teams or navigating their career path through rapid change. In this 1.5 hour workshop, we’ll explore the hidden but powerful, research-proven impact of servant leadership and how it can position marketers and sales professionals for success.

In this interactive workshop, attendees will take away:

  • What is servant leadership and how it is relevant at all stages in your career?
  • Do you have the traits of a servant leader? How can you grow the characteristics you’ll need.
  • Which attributes are most valid for sales and marketing professions.
  • How to build a high-performing marketing team applying the principles of servant leadership.
  • Strategies for operating in an organization that hasn’t embraced servant leadership principles.
