With the great success of the first two Academy course offerings, we are once again offering The Foundations of Servant Leadership and The Key Practices of Servant Leadership course starting this fall. Facilitated by subject matter experts Isabel Lopez and Jeff Miller respectively, each course is completed interactively using a wiki collaborative website and (5) group phone discussions.
And, due to popular demand, The Academy is adding Implementing Servant Leadership with Don Frick, Ph.D., well-known contributor to many writings on servant leadership and author of the definitive biography on Greenleaf. This course will fill up quickly so register now!

A Message From Our CEO – June 2015
Merriam-Webster defines Wisdom as “knowledge that is gained by having many experiences in life; the natural ability to understand things that most other people cannot understand; the knowledge of what is proper or reasonable: good sense or judgement.” So, being truly wise comes from a life long commitment to learn.
When Mr. Greenleaf challenged servant-leaders to help others grow wiser, he knew it was no simple task. There is no course to take, no certification to earn. So what can we do? A few things come to mind:
Challenge others to reach outside their comfort zone
Offer them opportunities to explore new areas of interest
Encourage sound risk taking
Pull lessons from EVERY experience (both successes and failures)
If wisdom develops over time, we need to also build in resilience, perseverance and a healthy dose of stamina!
In the spirit,
