Wisconsin Servant-Leadership Roundtables

While every roundtable discussion is slightly different, each one is built around a proven model. Roundtables are meetings run by volunteer facilitators who are devoted to walking the path of a servant-leader in their everyday and professional lives. 

If you are interested in connecting with like-minded people to grow and learn together, your local roundtable is for you! The goal of each roundtable is to provide support for Servant-Leaders on their journey and/or information for those interested in learning more about Servant-Leadership.

What to Expect at a Roundtable

  1. Two-breath introductions
  2. Frame the roundtable discussion topic
  3. Open discussion
  4. Each participant requested to identify one take-away from the conversation

  • Meeting Topic: Turning the Traditional Hierarchy Upside Down For Effective Implementation
  • Topic Summary:
  • “As a leader, let your people know what’s expected so they can excel. . The traditional hierarchy is good for the visionary aspect of leadership. People look to the leader for vision and direction, and although a leader should involve experienced people in shaping direction, the ultimate responsibility remains the leader and cannot be delegated to others. However, the implementation role – living according to the vision – is where most leaders and organizations get into trouble. The traditional hierarchy too often is kept alive and well leaving the customers neglected at the bottom. All the energy in the organization moves up the hierarchy as workers try to please and be responsive to their bosses. The authoritarian structure too often forces the front-line people, the customer contact people, to say frustrating things like, “It’s our policy,” or “I just work here,” or Do you want to talk to the supervisor?” In this environment, self-serving leaders assume “the sheep are there for the benefit of the shepherd.”
  • Effective implementation requires turning the hierarchy upside down so the customer contact people are at the top of the organization and are able to respond to customers, while leaders serve the needs of employees, helping them to accomplish the vision and direction of the organization. . .When you turn the traditional hierarchy upside down for implementation, you have the people closest to the customers – the object of your business – with all the power, all the capabilities to make decisions and solve problems.” Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges, The Servant Leader: Transforming Your Heart, Head, Hands, and Habits, 2003
