People lead best by serving first. This Servant Leadership principle is recognized as one of the best ways to unlock performance in today’s organizations.

Learn how to design, build, launch and evaluate your own effective servant leadership curriculum in this hands-on workshop. John Hester, a director with The Ken Blanchard Companies, draws on research and vast experience designing training courses for clients worldwide.

Come prepared to ask questions, explore options, and get help creating your own Servant Leadership program.


At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key components of a comprehensive program. Hester will share research on the attitudes, skills, and behaviors most associated with an others-focused approach to leadership.
  • Evaluate current gaps in existing training. A comprehensive curriculum includes self-awareness, listening, coaching, and performance management components. Hester will show you how to audit your current classes and identify gaps.
  • Utilize effective design principles. An effective curriculum includes asynchronous and virtual training components as well as face-to-face components for interpersonal skills. Hester will share how to match technology to content and how to create engaging learning experiences across all modalities.


  • Attendees will receive a handout depicting selected principles of servant leadership.
