HCI Webinar: Servant Leadership Series - Developing People, with Dr. Eric Russell

In this HCI Webinar, Dr. Westover and Dr. Eric Russell continue their weekly servant leadership series discussion. This week they discuss developing people and Dr. Jim Laub’s work on the topic. Dr. Laub is best known for building the Organizational Leadership Assessment Instrument that measures servant leadership within organizations as well as job satisfaction of followers. We need to (1) provide opportunities for learning and growth, (2) model appropriate behavior, and (3) build up others through encouragement and affirmation.
