We have a great (and also free!) opportunity for you coming up very soon, featuring our visiting servant-leadership scholar from the Netherlands, Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck. I came to know Dr. van Dierendonck at a Global Research Roundtable in the Netherlands some years ago, and now his work is among the leading work in the field. This is a wonderful chance to meet and learn from an international high level scholar! Here it is below, and please do send me an email if you plan to attend. firstname.lastname@example.org
Great to be learning together with you fine scholars here at Gonzaga in the Doctoral Program in Leadership Studies!

DO YOU THINK SERVANT LEADERSHIP IS SOFT?
Come meet with Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck, to learn about the advanced quantitative techniques and robust numerics being employed in servant leadership around the world. Did you know servant-led organizations in Fortune Magazine’s list of the 100 best companies to work for perform at twice the market rate? Did you know Starbucks, Synovus Financial, TDI, and Southwest Airlines are examples of companies that implement full-scale servant-leadership training for employees and perennially top Fortune’s list? Dr. van Dierendonck won’t be covering the ins and outs of these companies. He will, however, help us look at the advanced quantitative measurement of servant-leadership and how it impacts people and organizations.
Doctoral students and faculty will welcome Dr. van Dierendonck to two events. Please attend both if you can, as we’d love to see you there! Also, please feel free to invite scholarly friends.
July 11th from 1-4pm: Servant-Leadership Quantitative Research Seminar
and July 11th from 430-530pm: Servant-Leadership Research Presentation
Both events will be held in the Tilford Center room 405.
