About this Event
A healthy work-life balance is a priority for us, therefore we are always looking for alternatives to traditional work frames that will help our members and volunteers to thrive as individuals and activists!
Our lovely Volter Sam Carnall who works as a Scrum Master will give us an in-depth look into the insights of Servant Leadership philosophy’s concepts, techniques and collective benefits. The ultimate goal is to introduce a framework for Volt UK to help manage its ever-growing workload and allow its teams to be self-managed. By agreeing on the most important objectives of the team, we can focus better on doing the most valuable things first. And by limiting how much work we have on the go at once, we can, paradoxically, do more.
This will give you valuable insight that you can bring to your personal and professional life.
Prep work is recommended, by reading Kanban on Wikipedia!
What is Servant Leadership?
It’s a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve their team. In contrast to traditional leadership where the main focus is the thriving of their company and profit, a Servant Leader shares power and empowers their people, having the needs of the employees first, while aiming to help them achieve their best performance. This philosophy inverts the norm, where usually leadership works top to bottom. Instead of having people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people, which is a bottom to top approach.
“Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?” When leaders shift their mindset and serve first, they benefit as well as their employees in that their employees acquire personal growth, while the organization grows as well due to the employees growing commitment and engagement.”
Robert K. Greenleaf, the founder of Servant Leadership philosophy
