Back to the Basic: Changing the World Through Service

presented by 

Alexander Pullen, SHRM-SCP
Inclusion & Belonging Business Partner

About our presentation:

Servant leaders are revolutionizing the workplace by taking the traditional power leadership model and turning it upside down. Leaders who embrace the mindset of empowering and uplifting those who work for them, not only build better organizations, but unlock creativity and a sense of purpose. Learn how HR leaders across organizations are focusing on service to build strong organizational cultures and delivering enhanced value. Discover how the science of leadership can increase your resilience in facing upcoming challenges that threaten to disrupt all industries.

What you will learn:

  • Understand and articulate the philosophy of servant leadership
  • Learn best practices for organizational resilience
  • Emphasize a values-driven culture in your organization
