About the Workshop

Servant Leadership

Many leaders are promoted without formal leadership training. They either emulate leaders they admire or lead in ways that are in direct opposition to leaders they haven’t enjoyed working for in the past. But like most skills, leadership gets easier (and we get better at it!) the more we practice! In this workshop, we share how Zingerman's interprets, adapts, and teaches the work of the modern father of Servant Leadership, Robert Greenleaf, and how we put those learnings into daily practice in our culture.


Feeling off balance, knocked off course, and disoriented? We certainly are! During these uncertain and unprecedented times, each and every one of us is navigating drastic shifts in how we live, work and play--and it can be hard to find the equilibrium to figure out what to do next. Visioning is a tool that can help clarify what is most important. What success looks like at a particular point in time in the future. A way to define the destination we’re aiming for so that we can better prioritize how to spend our time and other resources (including our physical and emotional energy) on a day-to-day basis.

Mindful Self-Management

When everything is said and done, the key to your organization’s success comes down to how well you manage yourself as a leader. Bursting at the seams with real-life stories and practical tips for your everyday life (and desired future!), discover ways to be a better leader, improve your organization and ultimately, lead the life you want to lead


We don't believe in training for its own sake or just because it's the right thing to do - we firmly believe that the best and most successful training positively changes behavior and, therefore, positively affects our business's bottom lines. We'll share key elements of how we design and deliver our staff training as well as other tips we've learned over the years.
