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: Ask, Don’t Tell
  • Topic Summary: “In order to bring the concepts of servant leadership to your people you must prepare them, educate them, train them. I‘ve often heard this comment ‘Surely there is some piece of quick and easy advice you give to people who want to engage in the kind of leadership you advocate.’ In fact, I do have a piece of advice – quick, but not so easy – and I offer it to new managers, to would-be managers, to would-be servant leaders, and even to parents. When you are tempted to tell someone what to do, instead ask the question, ‘What do you think you should do now?’ Or in an organizational setting, ‘What do you think we should do?’ This is the only quick tip I have, but believe me, it can work magic. Remember, when tempted to tell, ask instead. “ James A. Autry, The Servant Leader, 2001

  • Meeting Topic: The Art of Listening: How People at Work Feel Heard, Valued, and Understood
  • Topic Summary: Rich Gassen, who leads the Campus Supervisors Network, suggested we discuss topics from this book by Heather Younger for our next meeting, Friday 5/19 from 8:30-10am (virtually). I purchased the book a few days ago and find it very valuable for deepening my knowledge of listening, empathy, and understanding. While not necessary for our discussion (Rich will provide a summary of key points and I’ll offer some questions), I encourage you to get a copy of the book. It is available here https://www.amazon.com/Art-Active-Listening-People-Understood/dp/152300388X. I found the book easy and fast to read.
