Servant Leadership at the Speed of Trust

Servant Leadership at the Speed of Trust




Are these the types of words that come to mind when you think about your experience of leading (or being led)?

There is plenty of leadership advice available in bookstores, online and in person. However, the kind of advice Stephen M.R. Covey, founder of the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice, and Art Barter, creator of the Servant Leadership Institute, are equipped to give is rare and more likely than most leadership workshops to guarantee growth of your organization (if you and your organization are willing to put in the work).

Trust Breeds Results

As Art Barter grew Datron World Communications from a $10 million company to a $200 million company in six years, he became convinced that a core leadership principle had to be serving and trusting others. He saw how distrust in a company was a waste of time and energy. He concurs with Stephen M.R. Covey: when trust goes down, processes are slower and costs go up. People spend more time double- checking work and finding faults in others. That’s no way to get results.

Servant Leadership and the Speed of Trust

  • learn how trust is hard, real, and quantifiable, and a function of character and competence;
  • learn how servant leadership can improve employee engagement and company culture;

Help Those You Lead Write a Different Story

Art Barter believes that the real measure of a servant leader lies in the stories of those they have influenced. We believe that this leadership conference can help you write another critical chapter in your own story of influence. Please join the conference if you are in the area or pass this along to someone who may be interested.
