Ethics in Leadership

 Wisconsin Conversation on Servant Leadership

Leading with Hope in Difficult Times

 June 19, 2008

“Servant leadership is an interesting phrase—a positioning of apparent opposites, which immediately causes us to think freshly.”
—Peter Senge, author, The Fifth Discipline

Servant leadership is gaining popularity across the nation as both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations discover that it leads to better performance, higher workplace satisfaction, and a more meaningful life. Learn how the ideas of the servant leadership movement began in the reflections of Robert K. Greenleaf, and find out how institutions in Wisconsin are implementing those ideas at the Wisconsin Conversation on Servant Leadership.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Obang Okello

OkelloObang Okello was an 11-year-old when his life dramatically changed. Living in a border village between Ethiopia and Sudan, he was a constant witness to the endless peril of war. One day in school, the building was bombed and in the resulting inferno he escaped and began a treacherous 1,000 mile, 40-day barefoot walk to the refugee camps of Kenya. Eventually, he resettled in the United States where he began a new life. He is a graduate of Bethel College in St. Paul where he studied business and theology.
