Building the next generation of servant leaders
The best work relationships are partnerships. They require collaboration between the leader and their people regarding communication, working style, feedback, direction, and support. But many leaders become so focused on meeting the organization’s needs that they lose sight of the needs and aspirations of their people.
Employees are engaged and productive when leaders care for their people and help them develop. Blanchard’s Servant Leadership Essentials™ training course teaches leaders how to build trust, listen, and give and receive feedback in ways that bring out the best in their people.
