    This session will provide participants with an ability to understand what servant-leadership is (and what it is not) and provide compelling reasons for the inclusion of this style of leadership in the workplace. The session will provide a self-assessment for participants and/or their leaders as well as a challenge for applying the principles which will be discussed.
