Servant-Leadership: From Theory to Practice

Location: Jepson Room 127
Date: Sat, April 21
Time: 1:55 PM - 3:00 PM
Servant-leadership courses have been popular in the Organizational Leadership and Doctoral programs at Gonzaga University since the very first course on servant-leadership was offered here in 1999. Among the most popular other servant-leadership courses taken by students are ORGL 522 (Leadership and Community), ORGL 532 (Leadership, Justice, and Forgiveness), ORGL 535 (Listen, Discern, Decide), and ORGL 537 (Foresight and Strategy). Students who take these courses leave graduate studies with a deep understanding of how a leader serves others and the common good in organizations, communities, and families. "What do Gonzaga alumni experience after their studies as they apply what they have learned in a variety of settings?" "Are there limitations to what can be dealt with using the servant-leader philosophy?" "What should future research on servant-leadership focus on to be of most benefit to its practitioners?" These and other questions will be discussed by a panel of Servant Leadership alumni practitioners.
