It's NOT about You!

Pat Falotico, CEO of the Robert K Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership

Servant leadership may not be about you, but it starts with knowing yourself. It demands you empathize, and it challenges you to see things whole -- the past, future and present together as one so you can chart a nobler path forward.

It then expects that you build relationships based on trust that allows you to truly listen, practice feedback and coach. It humbles you to realize that your leadership is only judged by those who respond to your vision. This, along with recognizing that we are called to help others grow, defines what a servant-leader believes.

Let’s have a dialogue!

Hidden Facilitation Nuggets in Design Thinking Methods

Kristin Leydig Bryant, MBA

By now almost everyone has heard of the IDEO methodology Design Thinking, which can be used to facilitate the design of product, service, or process innovations from a user-centric perspective. Come and play with two of the seven steps in the classic Design Thinking process: DEFINE (in which we articulate a challenge through the “How Might We” statement) and TEST (in which we create small experiments to test a tiny slice of a solution).

For each step, we will also discuss how to apply the concepts and techniques to other facilitation challenges.
