“For years student leaders have asked for more practical training. We introduced the Servant Leadership tools a few years ago and have been very pleased with the number of teaching opportunities they present and how much more equipped our students feel for their roles. The tools dovetail very well with our current training and leadership philosophy. We will be using these tools for years to come and will continue to look for further ways to implement them with our student leaders.”
