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
