The Music of Servant Leadership

Is your leadership out of tune? Have your employees lost their rhythm? Come with us on a day and a half journey as we study the pieces that must come together to create a beautiful melody in your workplace.

Art Barter, SLI founder and CEO has said, “Help your employees find the beat, then watch them dance.” Servant leadership is no quickstep. It’s like a waltz with dips and turns, a journey that takes patience and dedication. With inspiring speakers, interactive sessions, and a wide array of tools to equip you on your journey, you’ll leave this conference with pep in your step and a desire to lift those around you.

Whether you’ve been on your servant leadership journey for years, or you’re just getting started, get ready to expand your mind, explore new avenues, find your rhythm, and achieve positive results.

Create Your Music through:

Listening to our exciting keynote speakers.

Learning, from several “conductors” who are actively creating their “beat” on a daily basis as they lead others.

Practice through participation in our lively interactive sessions.  Practice doesn’t have to be drudgery!  Focus on learning and working with others real time. Get involved through building the skills of a servant leader so you can bring harmony to the work you do each day.

Listen, learn and practice so that you can orchestrate the change necessary to help your team find its song and achieve results that are simply extraordinary.

For the past six years, the Servant Leadership Institute has presented servant leadership conferences to bring you world-class thought leaders and workshop presenters focused on telling the story of servant leadership. Speakers have included John Maxwell, Gary Ridge, Ken Melrose, Steven M. R. Covey, Cheryl Batchelder, Colleen Barratt, Ken Blanchard, Liz Wiseman, Chris Stokes, Scott Schimmel, and our own Art Barter. With that kind of track record, you can be assured that what we bring you in 2017 will be fresh, challenging and straight from the heart.
