You spend most of your time and energy trying to achieve success. However, by being a marketer who listens, empathizes, builds community, etc., you can achieve significance through your work.
Servant leadership is an ancient philosophy that spans two millennia. But the modern servant leadership movement was born with a self-published essay by Robert K. Greenleaf — a man with a front-row seat as protests over war and civil rights threatened universities, corporations, and other institutions in the late 1960s.
Greenleaf believed institutional leaders were failing society by using their privileged positions for self-serving purposes, rather than the greater good. So he called for a change by emphasizing 10 surprising characteristics the greatest leaders embody—characteristics that are more relevant than ever to marketers.
In this keynote, Keith Reynold Jennings will take you on a whirlwind tour of this movement’s aim and opportunities, with an emphasis on how servant leadership’s core principles can be applied to your modern marketing practices — with powerful impact.
