At last, we offer a quality servant leadership course specifically designed for the needs of the Spanish-speaking workforce. TMCA has a track record of teaching servant leadership classes for 38 years, and now we have a course taught by Luis Duran-Aparicio especially for workforce employees with Spanish as a first language. In addition, the class uses cultural traditions to examine leadership skills, teaching through stories and participant experiences. The qualities of helping, serving, listening are wholly aligned with family values and social structures as participants explore experiences in their lives.
Topics covered include:
- Servant Leadership qualities and traits
- How Servant Leadership differs from command and control leadership styles
- How to build trust through servant leadership
- The role of fun and humor in servant leadership
- Teamwork and collaboration
The classes are hands-on, experientially based, delivered in the Spanish language the participants know and understand. One participant commented, “It is so helpful to hear these complex ideas and teachings in our own language. My understanding and comprehension of the concepts went way up. I wish that all of our training classes were offered in Spanish.”
