How do you embed an inclusive, Servant Leadership mindset into your daily processes?

I embed an inclusive, Servant Leadership mindset into my daily practices by leading by example. I also learn about the people I work with, and provide them with support, so they may have the opportunity to grow and develop just as I did.

How do you inspire others to embrace Servant Leadership practices?

I try to inspire others by simply doing my best to lead by example.

Share an example or story of how you demonstrated compassion or delivered quality customer service at your center.

During the holidays last year, we experienced severe weather in our area, which caused the pipes in one of our residential areas to freeze and burst. We evacuated our individuals and swept the water out of the residential area, so it wouldn’t flood the entire building. Three of our residential units were displaced, and we had to find suitable placements for all of our individuals who lived in the units. A team member arrived to relive me, but I stayed to assist the staff in whatever needed to be done. I wanted to show them that they weren’t alone, and together we could get it done, and then go home to be with our families.
