BUSINESS EXPERT JAMES HUNTER TO PRESENT “SERVANT LEADERSHIP” AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY MARCH 13

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Business expert and renowned speaker James Hunter will present “Servant Leadership” at Viterbo University from 8:30–10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 13 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Hunter’s presentation is sponsored by Dave and Barb Skogen and Festival Foods. It is free and open to the public and is hosted by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership.

Hunter will discuss the practices of a servant leader and the leadership movement that is transforming the world of business. Servant leadership is practiced in some of the world’s most admired and successful organizations including Festival Foods, Johnson and Johnson, PepsiCo, McDonald’s, Proctor and Gamble, Starbucks, Southwest Airlines, AFLAC, Nestlé, Marriott, and the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.

Servant Leadership is a values and relationship-based approach to leadership that seeks to create a high trust culture. It involves identifying and meeting the legitimate needs (as opposed to wants) of those entrusted to the care of the leader. It is a model for developing leaders of character who lead with influence.

Hunter is the author of two best-selling books, The Servant, subtitled A Simple Story About the True Essence of Leadership and The World’s Most Powerful Leadership Principle: How to Become a Servant Leader. His books have been translated into 13 languages and have sold over three and a half million copies worldwide. Hunter’s books are the texts used in many MBA and other higher education curriculum around the world. Each year Hunter speaks on servant leadership to over 100 audiences around the world. He has also personally coached over 2,000 executives in developing the skills of servant leadership.
