JAMES HUNTER TO PRESENT “THE POWER OF SERVANT LEADERSHIP” AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY DEC. 2
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Business expert and renowned speaker James Hunter will present “The Power of Servant Leadership” at Viterbo University from 8:30–11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
Hunter’s presentation is sponsored by Dave and Barb Skogen and Festival Foods. It is being hosted by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership.
Hunter, who has served as a consultant to Festival Foods for the past 10 years, will discuss the phenomenon known as servant leadership that is transforming the world of business. Servant leadership is practiced in some of the world’s most admired and successful organizations including Festival Foods, Pepsi, Starbucks, Southwest Airlines, AFLAC, Nestlé, Marriott, and the United States Air Force.
Servant Leadership is a values and relationship-based approach to leadership that seeks to create a high trust culture. It involves identifying and meeting the legitimate needs (as opposed to wants) of those entrusted to the care of the leader. It is a model of developing leaders of character who lead with influence.
Hunter is the author of two best-selling books, The Servant, subtitled A Simple Story About the True Essence of Leadership and The World’s Most Powerful Leadership Principle: How to Become a Servant Leader. His books have been translated into 13 languages and have sold over three million copies worldwide. His books are the texts used in many MBA and other higher education curriculum around the world. Each year Hunter speaks on servant leadership to over 100 audiences around the world. He has also personally coached over 1,600 executives in developing the skills of servant leadership.
