Servant Leadership

Most think of a leader as being the one at the top of a pyramid. But in this leadership philosophy, the pyramid is turned upside-down, and a leader makes the needs of others his or her top priority. This often results in higher performance and engaged employees.  Servant leadership is paramount when building a world class organization especially in a highly relationship intensive environment. Our actions as leaders set the temperature for our teams and ultimately for our residents.  Dr. Debbie Phillips, national speaker and industry expert will explain how to incorporate this leadership style into your professional life. Deep exploration will include:

  • Getting to the HEART of the matter through Servant Leadership
  • Examining our “why”
  • Ten Traits of Servant Leaders
  • Leadership from the Inside Out
  • Cultivating an environment that fosters service
  • Identifying next steps to achieve individual and team success

A few years ago, I was introduced to Dr. Debbie through a former student at Georgia Tech. Ever since, I have been hooked. Dr. Debbie’s zeal to motivate everyone she comes in contact with is incredibly inspiring. With every interaction I have walked away with hundreds of golden nuggets to apply to my career success. Her wealth of knowledge and commitment to her craft is unmatched. She has the ability to unlock the greatest potential in today’s leaders. She has personally challenged me to realize my own career goals and reaching new heights I never knew were possible. I am forever changed and grateful to have crossed paths with such a gem!

I had the opportunity to take one of Dr. Debbie’s classes at GA Tech this summer as one of my GSU MBA with Real Estate concentration classes and my experience was fantastic! Dr. Debbie is such a dynamic Professor. She is highly engaging and knowledgeable – there was never a dull moment. Her energy is intoxicating and motivating! Additionally, I had the opportunity to network with her many guest speakers and I look forward to fostering a relationship with Dr. Debbie throughout my career. Thanks again for a fantastic course!
